Alexandria, VA Upon previewing the upcoming Paramount Pictures film, World Trade Center, Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center issued the following statement: World Trade Center is a masterpiece and must be seen by as many people as possible. Oliver Stone has created something spectacular and it deserves our nations gratitude. Conservatives and liberals will praise this movie. For just a few hours following the attacks of September 11th, political ideologies fell by the wayside, Bozell continued. Americans came together for a rare moment to recognize the significance and fragility of life and liberty. This film captures that moment in... continue reading
Alexandria, VA Yesterday, the New York Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court issued rulings striking down gay marriage, making it an issue that state legislatures and the American people must decide. In response, the liberal media are spinning their coverage to present a distorted and pro-gay analysis of the issue, much in contrast to the overwhelming majority of Americans who oppose gay marriage. Top media such as the New York Times , USA Today , and the Washington Post , among others, have relied heavily on pro-gay sources and pro-gay reactions to continue distorting the reality of the... continue reading
Alexandria, VA Since publishing a highly controversial story about a secret U.S. program that monitors financial transactions as a tool to fight terrorism, New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller has defended the newspapers actions, claiming that one mans breach of security is another mans public relations. Mr. Keller has also now admitted that the liberal press is not neutral in this war on terror. Indeed, the track record proves that the New York Times and Bill Keller are not neutral but grossly biased against the U.S.-led war against terrorism. And now, thanks to their liberal biases, the NYT s... continue reading

Alexandria, VA Founder and President of the Media Research Center, Brent Bozell, comments on the New York Times s careless decision to report on a secret financial monitoring program used to trace terrorists: "The New York Times will stop at nothing to propel its liberal agenda, not even jeopardizing our national security. Bozell continued, "This most recent story should serve as a warning to Americans that the New York Times just doesnt give a damn about American national security. The Times can no longer hide behind the facade of fair and objective journalistic standards. The Times is deliberately pushing a... continue reading
Alexandria, VA Since the fall of Baghdad in April 2003 there have been thousands of news stories declaring as fact that there were no weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq. A typical media example comes from CBSs Ed Bradley, who said on 60 Minutes April 26, no weapons of mass destruction surfaced in Iraq. However, a partially declassified Army National Ground Intelligence Center report confirms that since 2003 U.S. forces have discovered more than 500 shells of ordinance containing sarin or mustard gas, i.e., WMD. It is now a definitive fact that there were WMDs in Iraq, and that... continue reading
Alexandria, VA Many liberal journalists are up in arms over Ann Coulters controversial remarks about certain 9/11 widows, but the same reporters regularly ignore or downplay the grossly insulting comments made by some liberals against conservatives. It is a clear double standard, proving, once again, the liberal media bias against conservative issues and conservative leaders. Many of Coulters critics are moral, editorial hypocrites, said Media Research Center President Brent Bozell. Where were they when Julianne Malveaux wished Clarence Thomas would eat fatty foods, get high cholesterol and die? When Senator Hillary Clinton accused Congress of running a plantation, or when... continue reading
Alexandria, VA As the U.S. military eliminated terrorist menace Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Media Research Center released a new study documenting the medias practice of highlighting unconfirmed allegations of military misconduct while ignoring proven military heroism. The new study found the networks in the past three weeks produced more than four times more coverage of alleged misconduct than theyve produced about Americas top heroes in the War on Terror in the past five years. Today, the American people want to take a victory lap with our military, said Media Research Center President Brent Bozell. They want to thank the troops... continue reading
Alexandria, VA On Wednesday, May 24, anchor Elizabeth Vargas and reporter Brian Ross of ABCs World News Tonight dramatically reported startling news that House Speaker Dennis Hastert is under investigation in relation to the Jack Abramoff bribery scandal. Fellow ABC correspondent George Stephanopoulos called the story potentially seismic in its political implications. The problem is that 1) the Department of Justice issued two denials, refuting ABCs claims; 2) it is now known that ABC did not call Speaker Hastert until one hour before its broadcast; and 3) ABC did not even check with the Justice Department for an official response... continue reading
