NewsBusters Publisher Bozell Discusses Biased Reporting of Egypt Protests on 'Fox & Friends'
Overall the coverage of the ongoing protests against Hosni Mubarak in Egypt has been pretty good, but it's when journalists get around to offering their analysis that bias has crept in, NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell told Fox News's Steve Doocy on the February 4 "Fox & Friends."
Case in point, MSNBC's Chris Matthews comparing the Muslim Brotherhood with the Tea Party movement.
"Mr. Bozell, he's shameless, isn't he?" Doocy asked.
Matthews is a pathetic parody of himself at this point, Bozell noted, arguing that the former Jimmy Carter staffer uses every opportunity he can to trash conservatives from his perch at MSNBC.
Bozell also reacted to journalists like NBC's Richard Engel benignly painting the Muslim Brotherhood as "nice people."
"This is a group that supports Osama bin Laden. This is a group that is agitating for Egypt to go to war next month with Israel," Bozell noted.
Journalists who fail to report their radical inclinations are "useful idiots," the Media Research Center founder argued.
