Topic: Media Research Center
From a Nov. 9 NewsBusters post on Brent Bozell's weekly appearance on Sean Hannity's Fox News show:
Chris Matthews's disgusting pronouncement that he was glad Hurricane Sandy struck New Jersey because it aided the president's reelection bid is just the latest in a string of mean-spirited, hateful, partisan rhetoric from the Hardball host, and Comcast/NBC has to own up to their responsibility for it, NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell told Sean Hannity on the November 8 Hannity.
"You own this guy, and you own responsibility for the things he's saying," Bozell insisted of the cable giant Comcast. "Look,, this guy is out of control. What more disgusting things can he say that he has to apologize for?"
"I don't care, Sean, that he apologized," Bozell noted, adding that Matthews, although always a liberal, has become hateful and spiteful in the past ten years.
So Brent Bozell is going to complain about others spewing "mean-spirited, hateful, partisan rhetoric"?
The same guy who called President Obama a "skinny ghetto crackhead"?
The same guy who spews partisan hate at every opportunity?
The same guy who oversees a group of employees who saw nothing wrong with Rush Limbaugh's three days of misogyny against Sandra Fluke?
This is the guy who wants to become the arbiter of civility in politics?
Who owns responsibility for Bozell? Doesn't the Media Research Center have a board of directors that will hold him accountable for his increasingly unhinged public behavior (which, one might presume, is reflective of his private behavior)? Doesn't Hannity care that it was on his air that Bozell called Obama a "skinny ghetto crackhead?"What a raging hypocrite. Emphasis on raging.
