MRC-TV: Bozell Discusses Media's 'Scorched-earth' Tactics on Bachmann, GOP -- July 1 'Fox & Friends'

"From now until Election Day 2012 it's going to be scorched earth against any Republican who gets in the way of Barack Obama," NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell told Fox News's Molly Line on the July 1 "Fox & Friends."

This past week found Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) the target of the liberal media's attacks in part because she just formally announced her 2012 presidential candidacy but more importantly because "She's a conservative woman and that goes against the narrative of the enlightened liberal."

"Look at the coverage of Hillary Clinton," for comparison, the Media Research Center founder noted, or how the media treated liberal African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall with the savage attacks the media have gotten away with on conservative Justice Clarence Thomas.

Bozell also slammed MSNBC's Chris Matthews for smearing Michele Bachmann as being pro-slavery because she is a constitutional originalist. "That the kind of low-brow MSNBC kind of coverage you get now which is just not worth our time, frankly," he argued.
