MRC's Bozell on Hannity & Colmes Tuesday Night Re: Hillary/Bosnia
Brent Bozell, President of the MRC which runs NewsBusters, appeared Tuesday night on FNC's Hannity & Colmes. Topic: The delay in the media covering Hillary Clinton's inaccurate boast of coming under sniper fire when arriving in Bosnia in 1996. Sean Hannity also raised media coverage of Jeremiah Wright.
Prompted by Hillary Clinton's comments today, Tuesday's ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts all led with stories that featured the 1996 video undermining Clinton's claims.
The MRC's Rich Noyes got this whole thing going with his March 18 NewsBusters posting with CBS News video from our archive, video which was soon posted by many on YouTube. Rich's posting: "Hillary Shot At in '96? No Media Mention of Bosnia 'Sniper Fire."

On Thursday, Rich posted: "AP, FNC's Hume Pick Up Hillary's Bosnia Fib; Will Rest of Media Follow?"
Saturday's Washington Post caught up, as recounted by the MRC's Tim Graham in: "WaPo Awards 'Four Pinocchios' to Hillary on Sniper-Fire Fable."
Finally, on Monday night the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News aired full stories and ABC caught up on Tuesday's Good Morning America, as recounted by Rich on Tuesday: "After Week of Silence, TV Morning Shows Pounce on Hillary's Fib."
