Right-Wing Org Tries To Raise Money Off My Blog

This may be a first for me -- the Media Research Center is using something I wrote to raise money.

Right-Wing Media Org Is Crowdfunding to Distort Obama's Record on Coal

Terry Krepel | Posted 08.08.2016 | Media

The solicitation doesn't explain why a wealthy organization like the MRC -- which raised more than $15 million in 2015 -- can't pony up a measly $15,000 to edit and promote footage they've already shot.

Right-Wing News Site Obsesses Over Clinton Emails, Ignores Trump

Terry Krepel | Posted 07.11.2016 | Media
Terry Krepel, the "news" division of the right-wing Media Research Center, claims in its mission statement that it's "a news source for individuals, news organizations and broadcasters who put a higher premium on balance than spin." That's a total lie. CNS is interested only in spin.

When the shooting that killed three at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic occurred, the folks at, the "news" division of the right-wing Media Research Center, knew what it had to do: change the narrative.

Right-Wing Media Cries 'Liberal Bias' in CNBC GOP Debate -- But Can't Prove It

Terry Krepel | Posted 11.02.2015 | Media

Echoing the attacks by Republican presidential candidates on the moderators of the CNBC-hosted debate, Media Research Center chief Brent Bozell ranted: "The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage." But there was one thing missing from Bozell's declaration: the encyclopedia.

Right-Wing Journalists are Indistinguishable From Protesters

Terry Krepel | Posted 10.06.2015 | Media

Journalists try to gather information. Protesters try to push buttons. Sam Dorman's admission that he was trying to push a button on Pelosi and provoke the response he got is all the evidence we need that he was in protest mode, not journalist mode.

How the Right-Wing Media Helped Make Ann Coulter's 'F---ing Jews' Tirade Possible

Terry Krepel | Posted 09.21.2016 | Media
Terry Krepel

The problem with the MRC's silence is that because it's been so close to Coulter in the past, they have ownership in her anti-Semitic remarks. In this case, silence can only be interpreted as assent.

Thank Right-Wing Media Activists for Ted Cruz's Dismissal of Tough Questions as 'Liberal'

Terry Krepel | Posted 08.27.2016 | Media
Terry Krepel

When Ted Cruz dismissed Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's questions to him on immigration as something a "liberal journalist" would ask, the right-wing Media Research Center applauded it. After all, that evasion tactic is straight from the MRC playbook.

Right-Wing Media Won't Acknowledge That Anti-Planned Parenthood Videos Are Dishonest

Terry Krepel | Posted 07.26.2016 | Media
Terry Krepel

What has the right-wing Media Research Center's "media research" been reduced to these days? Complaining that a story is accurately reported in the media.

Right-Winger Brent Bozell Wasn't Punished for His Lies but Demands Brian Williams Be Fired

Terry Krepel | Posted 04.13.2015 | Media
Terry Krepel

If Bozell wants to set an example Williams should follow and prove that his words have meaning instead of being empty partisan attacks, he should abjectly apologize for deceiving the public for years -- Bozell has yet to speak publicly about his years-long deception -- and resign as Media Research Center president.

And the Slantie Awards Go to...

Because Emmet, the star of "The Lego Movie," lived much of his life in a world where everything is awesome, he didn't have to worry about being Heathered by the Media Research Center.

If Sharyl Attkisson's Such a Fair Reporter, Why Is Right-Wing Media Defending Her?

Terry Krepel | Posted 01.20.2015 | Media
Terry Krepel

If Attkisson wasn't doing conservative-friendly things, the MRC wouldn't be so eager and desperate to defend her. If Attkisson had gone after a Republican president the way she has President Obama, Bozell and Graham would not be so effusively singing her praises.

Right-wing Media Group That Backs Limbaugh Suddenly Concerned About 'Civil Discourse'

Sometimes the double standards employed by the right-wing Media Research Center are breathtaking in their blatantness.

Brent Bozell's Ghostwriter Scandal Is Just His Latest Outrage

Terry Krepel | Posted 04.25.2014 | Media
Terry Krepel

The Media Research Center has been pushing the "Tell the Truth!" mantra for years, though that didn't apply to anyone telling the truth about conservatives. It also didn't apply to the MRC itself.

The MRC's Dishonest Christie Scandal Comparison

Terry Krepel | Posted 03.16.2014 | Media
Terry Krepel

As one would expect, the Media Research Center is coming to the defense of Chris Christie over the so-called Bridgegate scandal. But its chief line of defense is utterly dishonest.

Executive at Conservative Media Watchdog Group Accuses Me of Bias for Not Outing Myself as Transgender

Parker Marie Molloy | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Parker Marie Molloy

Because I'm transgender, because I'm someone who has deep knowledge of what it's like to feel as lost and scared as many of those kids in California, that should disqualify me from reporting on trans issues? Is that honestly what Gainor believes?

The Media Research Center's Brent Bozell Problem

Terry Krepel | Posted 09.11.2012 | Media
Terry Krepel

Even for someone prone to being so hateful in public, Brent Bozell's behavior in recent months stands out -- and particularly in the past couple of weeks -- in its viciousness and disregard for the reputation of his organization.

Bozell and the MRC have now returned to full hair-on-fire mode, trying to manufacture a controversy out of the TV broadcast networks not covering the lawsuit filed by various Catholic entities against the federal government over its contraception coverage mandate.

Brent Bozell Tries to Enlist Congress in His Vendetta Against NBC

Terry Krepel | Posted 06.24.2012 | Media
Terry Krepel

Bozell is playing partisan politics here. He wants his right-wing friends in Congress to help him harass and destroy a business, something he has been spectacularly unsuccessful at doing on his own. He's pursuing a vendetta, not justice.

Brent Bozell's Profile in Cowardice on Rush Limbaugh

Terry Krepel | Posted 05.14.2012 | Media
Terry Krepel

Why has Bozell refused to speak out in any meaningful way on Limbaugh? Does he think it's weakness for conservatives to apologize when they've clearly done wrong?

An organization that always turns right can only move in circles, or more accurately, in an ever tightening spiral. Rule and Ruin aims to explain how the GOP came to be drawn into its accelerating tornado of extremism.

Gingrich Assailed by Conservative Press; Conservatives Blame "Liberal Media"

Eric Boehlert | Posted 04.02.2012 | Media

When Will Culture Warriors Find Their Rainbow Connection?

Cliff Schecter

Too-big-to-fail corporations and their hand maidens in Congress (and the conservative echo chamber) most certainly pose a far greater danger to our children than a green frog-like puppet.
