Media Matters catches the MRC's Brent Bozell, claiming that Barack Obama "ran as a Reaganite" and "won over ... the public as a fiscal conservative" -- even though less than two weeks earlier, Bozell accused Obama of espousing "socialism" throughout the "entirety of the campaign." In that appearance, on the Nov. 7 edition of Fox News' "America's Newsroom," host Bill Hemmer partially followed the template by allowing him to appear solo, but surprisingly identified Bozell as president of the Conservataive Victory Committee -- perhaps because he was appearing in that role.
A separate Nov. 7 Bozell appearance on "Fox & Friends" followed the template completely -- Bozell appeared solo and was not identified as a conservative.
UPDATE: NewsBusters' post on Bozell's "America's Newsroom" segment is silent on Bozell's flip-flop.
