Alexandria, VA - Media Research Center President L. Brent Bozell, III today responded incredulously to reports that NBC's sister network MSNBC is in negotiations with liberal talk radio host Ed Schultz to add him as their newest host.

Just this past Friday, Schultz called Republican Senator Jon Kyl a "spineless scumbag" for daring to criticize President Obama's joke about how his bowling was so bad it was "like Special Olympics or something." On March 2 nd he likened a speech given by talk... continue reading

Alexandria, VA - Media Research Center President L.

Mr. Ron Fournier Washington Bureau Chief Associated Press 1100 13th St NW Suite 700 Washington, DC 20005 Mr. Fournier: I was disturbed by reading an Associated Press story out of your bureau late Friday that used Democratic propaganda to demonize Rush Limbaugh and make him appear nasty and disrespectful for suggesting the same thing that Democrats on the Hill have been suggesting for months: that a health care bill would be named after Senator Ted Kennedy.
