Alexandria, Va. The cover story of the May 14 issue of TIME magazine claims to name the 100 most influential men and women shaping our world, but it excludes the President of the United States, George W. Bush. In response to TIME s exclusion of listing the President, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement: TIME s exclusion of the President from its top 100 list is a deliberate and transparent slap at President Bush, the leader of the most powerful country in the world.

ALEXANDRIA, VA On Thursday, May 3, NBC will use the ultra-liberal Keith Olbermann to co-anchor pre- and post-coverage of the GOP debate, alongside Chris Matthews, on MSNBC. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell denounces NBC for presenting such a notoriously biased and partisan propagandist as an objective anchorman. Keith Olbermann is an avowed enemy of the Republican Party, stated L. Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, yet NBC and MSNBC give him a microphone and turn a blind eye to his ultra-liberal, propagandist personal agenda. If they wanted to provide balanced coverage of the debate, why not pair... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA Brian Frons, president of daytime programming for Disney-ABC, said that the network had an amazing year with Ms. ODonnell and hopes to entice Rosie back next year and if were lucky to guest co-host once in a while. In the same ABCNEWS.com statement, Barbara Walters said she can only be grateful to her [Rosie] for this year, and hopes that Ms. ODonnell will be back with us often next season as a guest host.

ALEXANDRIA, VA Media Research Center President L. Brent Bozell commented today on PBS decision to broadcast Bill Moyers Buying the War documentary while refusing to air Frank Gaffneys Islam vs. Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Center: All PBS has become is welfare for activist has-beens, said L. Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center. Their editorial rationale is self-incriminating. They subject viewers to the fanatical work of liberals like Bill Moyers, using viewers tax money and airwaves to peddle Moyers notion that the liberal media coverage of the Iraq war wasnt liberal enough. But, at the same time, they... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA ABC News conducted a poll that showed 40 percent think the culture is responsible for gun-violence, like that which occurred at Virginia Tech, and another 35 percent blame poor parenting. Yet ABC did not mention the critical culture finding on ABCs World News on April 23. Instead, the network focused on the polls findings on gun control. This is a clear example of cherry-picking the facts to fit a liberal bias. In response to ABCs selective reporting, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement: They didnt get the result they were looking for, which was... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA In advance of Earth Day on April 22, a new study released today by the Media Research Center proves that the morning news shows on ABC, CBS, and NBC are giving overwhelmingly one-sided coverage to the global warming issue with numerous reports that largely mimic the talking points of former Vice President Al Gore and climate disaster alarmists. The networks have also completely ignored the regulatory costs, estimated up to $400 billion a year, to reduce greenhouse gases that allegedly cause global warming. ABCs Good Morning America , CBSs The Early Show , and NBCs Today ran 115... continue reading
