Topic: Media Research Center
Discussing the shooting spree by alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner in his weekly appearance on Sean Hannity's Fox News show, Media Research Center chief Brent Bozell complained about what was explained in a Feb. 8 NewsBusters post as "the liberal media's deliberate papering over of the left-wing views that inspired him." similarly, another Feb. 8 NewsBusters post by Matt Vespa complained that NPR failed to note that "it's pretty clear from his manifesto that he has has liberal affinities, which some in the media seem to be hesitant to document in their reports." And a Feb. 8 MRC TimesWatch post by Clay Waters grouses that the New York Times hasn't reported that Dorner "praised liberal media personalities in his oddly chatty 'manifesto' posted on Facebook."
All of these MRC writers are leaving something out as well: Dorner's manifesto also praised some conservatives.
For instance, Horner wrote of radio host Bill Handel, who has expressed anti-Muslim and anti-health care reform sympathies on his radio show: "Bill Handel, your effin awesome. For years I enjoyed your show."
Horner similarly praised notoriously anti-immigrant (and anti-gay, and who got suspended from their show for calling Whitney Houston a "crack ho") Los Angeles radio hosts John and Ken: John and Ken from KFI, never mute your facts and personal opinions. You are one of the few media personalities who speak the truth, even when the truth is not popular. I will miss listening to your discussions."
Horner also had words of encouragement for conservative poster boy Tim Tebow:
Tebow, I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again and the game. You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be "Tebowing" when you reach your next team. I have faith in you. Get out of that circus they call the Jets and away from the reality TV star, Rex Ryan, and Mark Rapist Sanchez.
Gee, wonder why the MRC doesn't want us to know about this? Perhaps because fully quoting from the manifesto shows Horner to be all over the place politically and can't be pinned down to a single ideology (and is probably crazy).
