MRC's Double Standard on Blood on People's Hands
Topic: Capital Research Center

Matt Hadro huffed in a Sept. 13 Media Research Center item: "Terrorists murdered an American ambassador in cold blood, and yet CNN shamelessly implied on Thursday that the makers of an anti-Islam movie might have blood on their very hands."

Of course, just a few weeks ago, the MRC was essentially asking that very same question of the  Southern Law Poverty Center in the wake of the shooting at the Family Research Council

If you'll recall, MRC chief Brent Bozell used his Aug. 17 column to declare that the SPLC's designation "is obviously now causing real harm" -- despite the fact that nobody, including FRC leader Tony Perkins, has identified any direct link between the SPLC calling the FRC a hate group and the shooting.

As we've noted, Bozell and the MRC were eager to portray the FRC shooting as "liberal violence," while rushing to distance Scott Roeder, murderer of abortion doctor George Tiller, from the mainstream anti-abortion community, even though he had connections to pioneering anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, connections accused FRC shooter Floyd Corkins does not apparently have to the SPLC.
