he Media Research Center offered a press statement on the media overreaction to the Comey news: “The firing of FBI Director James Comey has pushed the deranged, bloodthirsty media over the edge. Rather than reporting the facts, the media rushed to breathlessly pushing Democratic talking points and conspiracy theories untethered to reason or reality. The notion that this is in any way comparable to Watergate is hysterical. Any media report that leaves out how Democratic officials flipped from slamming Comey’s handling of the email investigation to feigning outrage and mourning his dismissal is worthless.” Check out our analysis, including: NBC... continue reading

Brent Bozell, President, Media Research Center “Jorge Ramos has openly proclaimed the need for ‘journalists’ to go after President Trump and fight the President’s political agenda, and for that he gets an award from the ‘objective’ press.

RESTON, VA — Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell and ACT for America Chairman Brigitte Gabriel issued the following statement slamming the networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) for ignoring the first federal case of female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States filed under the U.S. legal code.

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell: Liberals in the media are scrambling to cover for the revelation that Barack Obama’s former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, unmasked Donald Trump associates in classified intelligence. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement: “The liberal media’s ‘nothing to see here’ approach to Susan Rice’s politically-motivated unmasking of Trump associates in sensitive intelligence material is shameful. You’d think someone who lied to the press and the American people about her role in the unmasking just two weeks ago would invite more scrutiny. We have a smoking gun that points to criminal... continue reading
Reston, Virginia — Late Thursday afternoon, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s budget proposal, including the decision to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB): “This is fantastic news. There is absolutely no reason for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) to receive taxpayer funding. I have long opposed taxpayer subsidization of public broadcasting because it’s not the federal government’s business to prop up media entities with taxpayer money. There are plenty of leftwing billionaires who could help fund the liberal propaganda coming from CPB. Now it’s time for Congress to follow... continue reading
As Democrats like Chuck Schumer in the Senate and liberals in the media ramp up efforts to torpedo Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement: “Senator Schumer is holding a sham press conference to smear Judge Neil Gorsuch. Judge Gorsuch is eminently well-qualified and a good man. Will the media covering this shameless spectacle report all the facts or just take Schumer’s word for it? I know the media — hundreds of reporters — have been provided with the undeniable facts to refute Schumer’s vicious smear attempt. We demand... continue reading
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell: “The media’s outrageous distortions of then-Senator Sessions’ meeting with the Russian ambassador at the Republican Convention must end now. We now know this was a political hit job. Any future news stories that fail to mention the blockbuster report that Sessions’ meeting with the Russian ambassador was at the behest of the Obama State Department will give more evidence of this hit job -- and the anti-Trump media's role in it. This is a hit job orchestrated by former Obama officials and holdovers in conjunction with a compliant media who are leveling untrue claims... continue reading
