MRC Division Lauds Donohue's 'Thoughtful Arguments'
Topic: Media Research Center

In a Feb. 13 article at the Media Research Center's Culture and Media Institute, Kristen Fyfe complained that "vitriol-spewing anti-Christian" blogger Amanda Marcotte was being turned into a "martyr" by the "liberal media" after the Catholic League's William Donohue led an effort urging the John Edwards campaign to fire her and another blogger for controversial posts made before their hiring by Edwards. Fyfe added: "None of these outlets reported Bill Donohue's thoughtful arguments regarding Marcotte."

That may be because Donohue is not exactly known for "thoughtful arguments." A guy who rants about "gook jokes" and "secular Jews" controlling Hollywood and bashing Christians, as well as a certain inconsistency in his outrage, in his using is hardly what most would consider a font of "thoughtful arguments."

Further, Fyfe fails to disclose that her boss, Brent Bozell, is on the board of advisors of Donohue's Catholic League.

UPDATE: A Feb. 13 CNSNews.com article also cited Donohue's criticism of Marcotte while failing to disclose Bozell's link to Donohue.
