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

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

Tell the Truth! (But Not When It Hurts Brent Bozell's Agenda)

Terry Krepel | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Terry Krepel

The "Tell the Truth" campaign is less about truth-telling and more about bullying the media into promoting right-wing talking points. The MRC doesn't really want a balanced media. It wants a slavishly right-wing media.
