Appearing on the Fox Business Network’s (FBN) Varney & Company on Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell reacted to the lack of media coverage following two Washington Post articles that revealed the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars in donations from foreign governments, including more than $500,000 from the Algerian government while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

Appearing on the Fox News Channel’s (FNC) Your World with Neil Cavuto on Wednesday, Media Reserach Center President Brent Bozell reacted to dual news stories surrounding ObamaCare and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as “business as usual” for an “out of control” administration ruling “government by fiat.”
The first story came on February 20 that 800,000 ObamaCare enrollees had received incorrect tax information and then followed by news on Tuesday that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has allowed enrollees to keep extra money on their refunds due to the taxing error.
A new poll commissioned by the Media Research Center reveals that the tales Brian Williams told – which led to his eventual suspension without pay – have severely undermined his credibility with the American people.
In a survey of 1,007 respondents, 66.1% said Brian Williams should have been fired after he was caught in numerous lies. Williams famously lied about being in a helicopter that was shot down over Iraq and seeing a dead body float by his New Orleans hotel during Hurricane Katrina. An overwhelming 71.6% of respondents said that despite the anchorman's apology and suspension, he should still resign.
Dan Rather is standing up for Brian Williams, which seems like a dubious endorsement. That’s like Bill Clinton standing up for Bill Cosby! -- NewsBusted's Jodi Miller.
"After their first diplomatic talks in 50 years, the U.S. and Cuba acknowledged that they have profound differences. For example, Cubans think President Obama is too far to the left." -- Jodi Miller
Reacting to the news on Tuesday that NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams had been suspended for six months indefinitely without pay, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined Sean Hannity on his Fox News Channel (FNC) show and described the decision as “very strange” considering how the lies Williams told are “not going to go away.”
Appearing with Hot Air’s Noah Rothman and investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, Bozell led off the segment by observing how “the statements made by the NBC executives” only reference the false statements Williams had made about being shot down over Iraq in 2003 and not questions about his reporting during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 or the 2006 war between Lebanon and Israel.

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined the Fox News Channel’s Hannity on Monday night to discuss the growing number of lies made by NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams that Bozell declared has left him with “no credibility” and warned that “neither will NBC if they bring him back” to anchor their evening newscast.
Bozell began by observing that “[t]he news is just getting worse and worse for the man” and compared him to a player on a Super Bowl-winning NFL team who continually lies by changing his story about the role that he played on the team.
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is reporting “Brian Williams is stepping aside from his "NBC Nightly News" amid mounting questions about the accuracy of a story he told about an Iraq War mission in 2003."
"I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days," he said in a memo to colleagues.
According to Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, Brian Williams is “lying about everything." Bozell appeared on the February 6 edition of Fox News’s Hannity and asserted that the NBC anchor has clearly fabricated multiple parts of his claim to have been in a helicopter shot by an RPG in 2003.
Appearing on the Fox News Channel (FNC) program Hannity on Thursday night, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell called on NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams to do “the honorable thing” and “resign” following the lie that he had told for years that his helicopter was hit by an RPG over Iraq in March 2003.
Bozell told host Sean Hannity that Williams’s claim about his false story being “a bungled attempt” to thank a veteran simply “just doesn’t pass the smell test” considering how: “If he bungled it, then he also bungled it on the Letterman show two years ago. How do you bungle it twice and how do you bungle being hit by a rocket-propelled grenade?”
NBC foreign correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin suggested that Chris Kyle, the real "American Sniper," was a "racist" whose military missions were nothing less than "killing sprees." Despite receiving thousands of phone calls, NBC has yet to issue an apology.

Media Research Center president Brent Bozell called on NBC to formally apologize for the outrageous "killing spree" statement that network correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin made on the January 29 edition of Morning Joe. Of course, Mohyeldin's nasty anti-American comments should come as no surprise, Bozell reminded host Megyn Kelly, noting how the Palestinian journalist got his start in major-network journalism.
Good news for Mark Levin fans: Levin and Westwood One inked a long-term contract extension of the nationally syndicated hit "The Mark Levin Show" through the year 2020. His show debuted in 2003 on flagship WABC-AM in New York from 6-8 pm and reached number one in the ratings only 18 months on the air. In 2009, a third hour was added to the broadcast to keep up with the demand from his fans for even more original content. It's currently heard on more than 300 stations across America.

Nineteen leading pro-life organizations joined the Media Research Center to chastise the networks for their near blackout of the 2015 March for Life. The Annual March for Life, which attracted over 200,000 participants from around the country, marked the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.
On Tuesday, just as President Obama was putting the finishing touches on his State of the Union address, MRC President Brent Bozell assessed the “State of the Media” in 2015. He warned of four trends that could be expected in the coming year: the continued media cover-up of Obama’s scandals and his many policy failures; positive coverage for left-wing initiatives such as Obama’s executive amnesty; coverage that dishonestly paints Hillary Clinton as a moderate, and “scorched earth” attacks against any conservatives who decides to run against her.
Terry Jeffrey of our CNSNews.com website reported on what may have been an inadvertent moment of candor, when President Obama clearly suggested he believes the vast major of TV news stations are liberal.
Whatever his intention, President Barack Obama revealed to a crowd at Boise State on Wednesday his belief that there is one conservative station in the TV news world, and many liberal stations.
