MRC Dances On Grave of 'GCB,' Still Won't Publish List of Offenses
Topic: Media Research Center

There was much celebrating at the desk of the Media Research Center's Lauren Thompson this week: ABC has canceled thet show "GCB."

As we've detailed, Thompson dutifully watched the show every week, tallying a list of the show's alleged offenses against Christianity, which stood at 157 offenses according to the most recent count she publicized. Curiously, Thompson refused to publish a full running list of the purported offenses.

The cancellation of "GCB," however, caused Thompson to take a victory lap in the form of a May 14 MRC Culture & Media Institute post saying "good riddance" to the show and ranting about how it racked up "more than 100 attacks on Christianity in its short run."

Again, Thompson failed to publish that now-complete list of offenses. What's holding her back? Since she made such a big deal out of keeping the list in the first place, you'd think she'd be eager to fully inform her readers.

Of course, it could also have been that Thompson never intended to fully document the number of offenses, just toss around an absurdly high number for shock value (and, of course, fundraising purposes).

Either way, Thompson is being dishonest. time to fish or cut bait, dear.
