"President Obama voted on the first day of midterm elections. And because he was in Chicago, his vote has already been counted 27 times." --Jodi Miller
"If it hurts the narrative of the Obama administration, it's just not covered." That's how Media Research Center president Brent Bozell summed up the stunning findings of the latest MRC study, which shows a tremendous disparity in how the liberal broadcast networks covered the 2006 midterms as opposed to this years.
"As we’ve reported before, MSNBC is suffering from record-low ratings. To give you an idea how bad it is, Hardball with Chris Matthews is now Solitaire with Chris Matthews." -- Jodi Miller
On Thursday, the Fox News Channel’s (FNC) The Five spent part of its program discussing the latest study from the Media Research Center, which detailed the vast disparity in stories filed by the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC on their evening newscasts in the lead-ups to both the 2006 and 2014 midterm elections.
Co-host Eric Bolling introduced the study and its findings in the show’s second segment: “A new Media Research Center study shows the network evening newscasts have essentially blacked out bad election news for Democrats.”
In a commentary segment on the October 22 edition of his eponymous Fox Business Network program, Lou Dobbs cited a brand-new study by the Media Research Center contrasting the liberal network media's coverage of the 2014 midterms, which is likely to be a Republican wave election tossing Democrats out of power in the Senate, with the 2006 election, in which the media practically cheered on the Democrats as they tossed the GOP out of control of both houses of Congress.
"MSNBC had record-low ratings last quarter. But the network remains dedicated to objective journalism, according to its program director, Barack Obama." -- Jodi Miller
MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on "Cavuto" on the Fox Business Channel Friday night to discuss Ebola coverage. Substitute host Connell McShane asked if the media were either overdoing it or underdoing it.
Bozell said it was too early to render a verdict. If the disease never takes hold, then it might look like hype. But if the disease worsens, then all the attention is justified.
"Colorado Democratic Senator Mark Udall has voted with President Obama 99 percent of the time. In return, Obama has agreed NOT to campaign for Udall this fall." -- Jodi Miller.
Katy Conrad is a booker and producer with CBS This Morning, but conservatives quickly made fun of her on Twitter when she mocked Rand Paul's medical opinion, as if he was a doctor. (Oops, he is -- an opthalmologist, to be precise.)
"When the government mandates what a pastor can or cannot say, and criminalizes preaching the Bible, we’re no different than Red China. How in the name of God is that not national news?" -- Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell
"According to a new poll, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's approval rating has fallen to 21 percent. To put that in perspective, 22 percent approve of Justin Bieber."
MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday night to discuss the very limited TV coverage of Leon Panetta's book and its tough critique of President Obama's foreign-policy actions (and inaction).
Bozell said: “This is a bombshell. It is an absolute bombshell. Whether you agree with the policy or not, it's irrelevant. It's a bombshell when the secretary of defense says that the president has completely screwed up foreign policy.”
Graham pointed out that when the former Secretary of Defense gave his first interview to CBS’s 60 Minutes, neither one of the other two major broadcast networks (ABC or NBC) covered it and the result was the same with O’Reilly’s interview.
Speaking on how “especially upsetting again” it was that none of the networks joined O’Reilly in asking Panetta about the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 attack in Benghazi. On what Panetta said about Benghazi, Graham thought that “Panetta's answers on that were really weak.”
Today the Media Research Center (MRC) announced that it entered into an Agreed Order of Dismissal with the government ending its lawsuit to block enforcement of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate, which forces people of faith to subsidize health insurance plans that include abortion inducing drugs, contraception, and sterilization.
President Obama often takes cheap pot shots at Fox News from the podium because it's the only network doggedly reporting on his administration's numerous scandals, Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell told Stuart Varney on the Friday, October 3 edition of his eponymous Fox Business Network program. The rest of the media, however, are "fully vested" in Obama and willing to go "down in flames" with his flailing administration.
At the Media Research Center’s annual gala, featuring the “DisHonors Awards” – a week ago tonight – MSNBC’s Krystal Ball “won” the “#obamacarefail Award” for declaring conservative opposition to ObamaCare “a national disgrace” by those okay with people dying so long as it serves the goal “of hurting this President and denying him a victory.”
Actor-director Rob Reiner won “The Celebrity Dumb Ass Award” at the Media Research Center’s 2014 Gala. Last November 1, he told Bill Maher on his HBO show that “Obama right now, where Obama is, is right around where Reagan was, right around where Nixon was. He’s no more left than those Republicans.”
Football fans know you don't want to spend a whole game on the wrong side of the 50 yard line. At the Values Voters Summit on Friday, MRC president Brent Bozell said it's time for conservatives to go on offense.
Put in your two cents, on this, or the weekend games, et cetera.
It was no contest really. For the 2014 "Damn Those Conservatives to Hell" DisHonor, the winner hands down was former MSNBCer Martin Bashir, who infamously wished on national television -- if MSNBC can count as that -- that former Gov. Sarah Palin might be subject to someone defecating down her mouth.
On Thursday evening before hundreds of conservative activists gathered for the 2014 Media Research Center Gala, radio host and author Mark Levin joined the likes of Brit Hume, Rush Limbaugh, and the late Tony Snow on Thursday evening by becoming the latest honoree to receive the MRC's William F. Buckley Jr. Award for Media Excellence.
