MRC's Bozell Discusses Liberal Media's Double Standard on Bush/Obama Midterm Poll Numbers

"When this administration is falling apart, the media should give it the exact same coverage they gave to George Bush," Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell told Fox News Channel substitute host Stuart Varney on the September 8 Your World w/Neil Cavuto.

"If you go back to 2006, to the Bush years... night after night after night, a big part of the narrative was how Bush's support is collapsing," Bozell noted, but now in 2014, a critical midterm election year where Democrats could lose the Senate, for a full eight months, there were just "two mentions, not a single full story" on Obama's plummeting poll numbers.

What's more, Bozell noted, a new MRC study shows that while in the first eight months of 2006, "33 times the media ran stories about how [Iraq] was unpopular," compared to zero stories devoted to the unpopularity of Mr. Obama's signature achievement, the ObamaCare health care overhaul.
