It doesn't matter anymore that [Big Three broadcast networks] ABC and NBC and CBS aren't covering it. The world now knows about it because people go in there and show them the truth,&quot; Bozell noted, adding that it proves what conservatives have been saying that ACORN &quot;is a suspect organization [subsidized] with millions of taxpayer dollars.&quot; </p><p>Bozell also discussed the controversy involving Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), who yelled &quot;You lie!&quot; at President Obama during last Wednesday's speech before Congress:</p><!--break--><blockquote><p>SEAN HANNITY, host of &quot;Hannity&quot;: He apologized. None of these Democrats have ever apologized, Brent. None. And the media didn't call them out, and that's your job monitoring them.</p><p>BRENT BOZELL, MRC president:  And look, look what good it's done for him to apologize. They're still after him. And now they want to censor him. They want him groveling and they're still not going to accept it. But, look, he shouldn't have done it. And those of us who are defending him can say he should have done it the moment the speech was over, outside of that chamber.</p><p>BOZELL: I don't want Democrats doing it to good Republicans and--</p><p>HANNITY: But they booed George W. Bush in the [House] chamber. They booed him.</p><p>BOZELL: And, and we thought that that was tasteless and we denounced them for it.</p><p>[...]</p><p>BOZELL: And by the way, the President did lie in that speech. </p></blockquote>
