Alexandria, VA - In a special report released today, the Media Research Center (MRC) reveals the vile and vicious members of left-wing talk radio and their record of hatemongering. While the media continue to ignore these accounts, they contrastingly continue to accuse and attack conservatives.
The Real Radio Hatemongers reveals research dating back as far as 2007 of slander against conservatives on liberal talk radio that has gone largely unchecked and even ignored by the media. Hosts such as Mike Malloy and Ed Schultz are among this group of true hatemongers who have typified slander against conservative radio talk show hosts, Republican members of Congress, and the GOP as a whole. Yet the media continue to demonize conservative rhetoric, all the while failing to address or even discuss the arguably worse offenders on the left.
Findings in The Real Radio Hatemongers of this hateful rhetoric include:
• "I really think there are conservative broadcasters in this country who would love to see Obama taken out." (Ed Schultz)
• "Do you not understand that Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly are as complicit of the September 11, 2001 terror attack as any one of the dumbass 14 who came from Saudi Arabia?" (Mike Malloy)
• "[Dick] Cheney, by the way, looks very ruddy. I couldn't get over that. Like, he must have feaster on a Jewish baby, or a Muslim baby. He must have sent his people out to get one and bring it back so he could drink its blood." (Mike Malloy)
Brent Bozell, founder and president of the Media Research Center, commented:
"It is bad enough that the liberal media continue to attack conservative top talkers with baseless lies and concocted smears, but we now have proof that the real hate is being spread by liberal talk show hosts with no repercussion from the media. Wishing for the death of Michele Bachmann and Rush Limbaugh goes ignored by the so-called 'news' media. Accusing conservatives of wishing to kill President Barack Obama goes ignored as well. Look: We have the proof. We have their words on record. The media must tell the truth about these vile offenders, else they participate in outright hypocrisy."
