In case you missed it, Jodi Miller had some great zingers in the past two episodes of NewsBusted. Check them out.
MRC's Rich Noyes appeared on Fox Business' Varney & Co. to discuss the media's lack of coverage of Jonathan Gruber mocking the stupidity of the American public as being influential to getting ObamaCare passed.
On Thursday night, the Fox News Channel’s (FNC) Special Report with Bret Baier spotlighted the latest study from the Media Research Center (MRC) and Newsbusters, which exposed the almost no coverage of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber telling an audience in a 2013 video that “lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter” were critical in the law’s passage.
During the show’s “Grapevine” segment, host Bret Baier noted that, while FNC and his program “feel this is something our viewers deserve to know,” the networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC “apparently, disagree.”
On Wednesday, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Company to discuss how the media have virtually ignored video of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber mocking the 'stupid voters' for helping the Obama administration's efforts to pass ObamaCare.
Varney also mentioned media coverage of the "major" climate deal between Obama and China.
Media Research Center president Brent Bozell appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss liberal tilt in midterm election coverage (the first tilt being the lack of coverage on ABC, CBS, and NBC as Democrats looked like they were in trouble in the polls).
CNN host Brian Stelter tried to suggest Bozell and President Obama could agree that there is a bias, since Obama thinks there is a bias toward covering conflict. Bozell thought that didn't sound true at all:
Well before the 2014 midterm race heated up, there was an "inescapable pattern" in the media's blackout on stories involving Obama administration scandals from Benghazi to Fast & Furious to the IRS's targeting of Tea Party non-profits. "If the accounts hurt the president and his party, the media deliberately suppress their airing before the public," Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell noted in a piece for National Review Online this morning.
Likewise, the pattern has held true with broadcast network coverage of the 2014 midterms, Bozell explained...
In case you missed it, here's the latest edition of NewsBusted, from October 31. Host Jodi Miller found something that Michelle Obama's said on the campaign stump that we can agree with.
Both CNN's Reliable Sources and Fox's Mediabuzz on Sunday recounted the Media Research Center's study on the dramatic difference in the amount of midterms election coverage between 2006 and 2014 on ABC, CBS, and NBC.
CNN host Brian Stelter introduced an interview with retired Sen. Alan Simpson by noting:
"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.”
