One MRC Division Gives Advice; Another Ignores It
Topic: Media Research Center

In an April 16 NewsBusters post, Kyle Drennen praised NBC's Tom Brokaw for "warn[ing] his media colleagues about premature speculation regarding the motivation of the Boston bombing: 'I think everybody has to take a deep breath...report what we know, and do the best we can with the information that we're able to get reliably.'"

He might want to send that message down the hall at Media Research Center headquarters to its "news" division, CNSNews.com.

An April 16 CNS article by Patrick Goodenough was devoted to highlighting how "a leading al-Qaeda ideologue last year recommended that jihadists in America include sporting events in their list of prospective terror targets." Goodenough conceded that "no group has claimed responsibility for Monday’s deadly bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon," but that didn't keep him from writing an article suggesting otherwise.

If the MRC can't be bothered to follow the advice it gives to other media outlets, why trust anything it says?
