Press Releases

Following the first 2016 presidential debate on Monday night between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell issued the following statement about the debate and moderator/NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt: Lester Holt clearly heard the cries of his colleagues in the liberal media to be tough on Trump and ease up on Hillary loud and clear. Holt continually challenged, fact-checked, and interrupted Trump and not once challenged Hillary. Holt pounded Trump repeatedly on the birth certificate controversy, his position on Iraq, his tax returns, and whether or not Hillary looked presidential. Where were the questions... continue reading
On Monday night following CNN’s Wolf Blitzer hounding of Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence on The Situation Room, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following statement about Blitzer’s questioning of Pence: Wolf Blitzer and CNN showed their true colors tonight. Blitzer’s question to Gov. Mike Pence was textbook gotcha journalism and it didn’t work. The question was both absurd and obnoxious. And for anyone to suggest Gov. Pence failed to repudiate David Duke is laughable. What part of ‘we don’t want his support’ does CNN not understand? This is just another left wing smear designed to help... continue reading
On Thursday night’s Kelly File , Jorge Ramos doubled down on his recent defense that journalists should ditch neutrality in their coverage of the 2016 presidential election contest. Specifically, Ramos defended his anti-Trump statements from his platform as an anchor at Univision and Fusion, condemning Trump as an anti-Hispanic, anti-immigrant racist. But perhaps more egregious is his call in his latest Time magazine column encouraging everyone , including other journalists, to take the same political stance as he is taking: “It doesn’t matter who you are—a journalist, a politician or a voter—we’ll all be judged by how we responded to... continue reading
Christianity is on the verge of being wiped out in the Middle East. Ancient communities that have existed since the time of the apostles are being systematically eliminated. In Iraq alone, the number of Christians has plunged from one million to under 275,000 in the last 12 years alone. This is not a few instances of violence or vandalism. This is a Genocide. And in March of this year, the U.S. State Department finally made it official. But journalists have long known this or should have known. The horrors that are being perpetrated against Christians in the Middle East are... continue reading

RESTON, VA – The following is a statement released Friday afternoon from MRC President Brent Bozell on CNN’s Jake Tapper publicly taking on the State Department over the issue of lies about the editing of video from a public event. “At the risk of ruining Jake Tapper’s career I have to commend him for looking into the camera and publicly demanding accountability from the State Department during a segment that went over four minutes on his show. He identified four separate lies told by the State Department and, when he got to the end, he spoke for me and all... continue reading
