Alexandria, VA - The Media Research Center's Brent Bozell issued the following statement in response to the firestorm of media attention to accusations against Herman Cain: 'Sadly, Herman Cain's predictions have come true. In May he stated that he was 'ready for the same high-tech lynching that [Clarence Thomas] went through - for the good of this country.' That's what Politico is doing with its unsubstantiated and thoroughly hypocritical hit piece against him. Anyone in the press that gives this story oxygen is equally hypocritical. 'In the eyes of the liberal media, Herman Cain is just another uppity black American... continue reading
Alexandria, VA – Within hours of MRC President Brent Bozell sending certified overnight letters to demand ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC cover the video evidence of racial bigotry at Occupy Wall Street protests, three prominent Jewish leaders united with the call for the TV networks to cover the anti-Jewish hatred. Bozell maintains that these networks will be guilty of intentionally covering up acts of anti-Semitism if this continues to go unreported and draws on their obsession with reporting alleged – yet unsubstantiated – claims that Tea Party members exhibited racism. The statements include: 'The Left has a long history of... continue reading
Alexandria, VA - After capturing on camera an Occupy Wall Street protestor lashing out with an anti-Semitic tirade, the Media Research Center (MRC) is sending certified overnight letters to the Presidents of ABC News, CBS News, CNN Worldwide and NBC News demanding that their networks report racism demonstrated at the protests. Given the networks were obsessed with alleged racist smears by Tea Party members – even though uncorroborated and without a "scintilla of video or audio evidence" – MRC President Brent Bozell says the MRC's new video should be more than enough to qualify as news. "The Jews commit more... continue reading

Alexandria, VA – The Media Research Center's President Brent Bozell sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner today calling on him to jumpstart Congress into stripping the government-subsidized corporation of taxpayer dollars, following the latest outrageous violation of ethics by NPR. The laundry list of offenses by NPR is long and robust , but the most recent revelation that NPR host Lisa Simeone is serving as a spokesperson for Occupy DC, the Washington-based effort of the radical Occupy Wall Street movement, has gone much too far. A quote from the letter sent by Brent Bozell to the Speaker: NPR... continue reading

NPR must be defunded. It has been exposed that NPR host Lisa Simeone has been acting as a spokeswoman for the radical Occupy D.C. group 'October 2011.' Regardless of the fact that NPR has recently terminated Miss Simeone, this is an outrageous violation of NPR's so called ethics rules, which specifically state that 'NPR journalists may not participate in marches and... continue reading
Alexandria, VA - A new USA Today/Gallup poll finds that Americans blame Washington for the country's economic turmoil much more than the target of the Occupy Wall Street protests, Wall Street and financial institutions. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell is not surprised: 'The American people see right through the liberal media's favorable spin on Occupy Wall Street. While they shamelessly coddle these clueless protesters, the public isn't buying it. Americans overwhelmingly blame Washington for the nation's economic mess and failure to address it,' Bozell stated. 'The radical protesters can't rally around a central message, purpose or goal because they... continue reading
