This year’s winners were selected by a distinguished panel of radio talk show hosts, magazine editors, columnists, editorial writers, and expert media observers. Although challenged by perennial favorite and eternal gasbag, Chris Matthews, Harris-Perry’s underdog victory should send a thrill up any media observer’s leg.

ALEXANDRIA, VA – ABC, CBS, and NBC have suppressed news coverage of violent assaults perpetrated by union thugs in Michigan on Tuesday. The networks deliberately ignored widely available footage of Fox News Contributor Steven Crowder being punched in the face by a union member and union protesters tearing down a tent erected by Americans for Prosperity while people were still inside. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell reacts: The pro-union broadcast networks are deliberately censoring footage of thuggish union violence directed at conservatives. If a Tea Partier had physically assaulted a liberal journalist or ripped down a structure occupied by... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA – ABC World News with Diane Sawyer continues to tout the Obama Administration’s spin that tax hikes on the wealthy are the only solution to the looming “fiscal cliff” catastrophe. According to an analysis from the Media Research Center’s Business and Media Institute, in the three weeks following President Obama’s re-election, World News devoted more than 10 minutes 18 seconds to talk of tax hikes and just 35 seconds to spending cuts (a 17-1 margin). NBC Nightly News discussed taxes more than twice as often as spending (4 minutes 23 seconds to 1 minute 47 seconds.), while CBS... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA – Following the re-election of Barack Obama, the liberal media are shamelessly using his win over moderate Mitt Romney to scare the GOP away from re-embracing its winning conservative message. As documented by the Media Research Center, the corrupt media are seizing on Obama’s victory to discredit and attack conservatives, the Tea Party, and Rush Limbaugh in a blatant attempt to splinter the Republican Party and its conservative base: ■ ABC’s Barbara Walters assailed the GOP for being “behind” on social issues. ■ The Washington Post went on a mission to look for right-wingers who plan to buy... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA - For the seventh night in a row, ABC’s World News , CBS Evening News , and NBC Nightly News refused to give one single second of coverage to the Obama administration’s deceitful response to the terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11.

Since then, ABC News and CBS News have relegated coverage of the Benghazi terrorist attack to their websites. Jake Tapper’s... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA – For the sixth night in a row, ABC World News , CBS Evening News , and NBC Nightly News refused to give one single second of coverage to a Fox News report that the Obama Administration denied help to those attacked and killed by terrorists at the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11. According to a Media Research Center analysis, ABC, CBS, and NBC have failed to cover this devastating story - not to confirm it, not to knock it down, and never mind do their own investigation. The story broke last Friday, long before Hurricane... continue reading

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Last night, ABC World News gave a dismissive 20 seconds of lip service to a blockbuster report that revealed State Department emails showing that the White House knew on September 11 that the Benghazi consulate attack was a terrorist attack. The emails documented that within two hours of the attack, the State Department had told the Obama administration that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for this terrorist attack. The revelation proves that President Obama and his spokesmen repeatedly lied to the American people. For days, falsely claiming it was a “video.” The story broke Tuesday... continue reading
ALEXANDRIA, VA – According to the Media Research Center, both ABC and NBC continue to cover up President Obama’s lie about Libya during Tuesday night’s debate. In fact, neither network covered Libya at all during their evening broadcasts last night. Instead, both ABC and NBC followed the Obama campaign's theme of the day in emphasizing the effort to win over women voters. ABC touted Barbara Walters' "pointed question" about abortion posed to Ann Romney on The View , while NBC's Andrea Mitchell talked about Mitt Romney's "'binders full of women' stumble in the debate.” To date, neither ABC World News... continue reading
