But what the New York Daily News did here was take it far further than that and ridicule people of faith for offering simple prayers.”

MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on the Fox Business program Varney & Co. on Tuesday to discuss the network reporters getting feisty with President Obama in Antalya, Turkey on Monday.

MRC president Brent Bozell expressed support for Fox Business and its moderators in the two presidential debates:
"Fox Business promised to best CNBC in the management of a debate. Fox did not best CNBC, Fox utterly humiliated their competition.

"In Omaha, a 15-year-old boy has been arrested for groping his 28-year-old female teacher. When reached for comment, the school’s principal said they will now enforce a strict rule against students making the first move." -- NewsBusted's Jodi Miller.
