Topic: Media Research Center
Tim Graham devotes a Dec. 29 NewsBusters post to being offended that Politico published an article headlined “When will the right start hating Hillary Clinton again?” Graham's initial response: "The snarky answer: it stopped?"
Well, Graham certainly hasn't, lashing out at Politico for not hating Hillary as much as he does:
As usual, the liberal media sets the table, and then expects everyone to eat off of it. The media wanted Hillary to be an utterly uncontroversial Secretary of State, acquiring only more political power and gravitas. Haberman, like the others, portray it as politically stupid to focus on Hillary's "fading" failure in Benghazi. None of them ever cared about the sprawling conflict of interest of the Secretary of State having an ex-president husband with a "global initiative" soaking up donations from foreign countries and lobbying interests.
Graham fails to mention that both he and his employer, the Media Research Center, have been major cogs in what Politico called "the anti-Hillary Clinton industrial-entertainment complex." MRC chief Brent Bozell headlined a notoriously mean-spirited farewell to President Clinton at the end of his presidency, and Graham and Bozell co-authored a factually flawed attack book on Hillary during her 2008 presidential campaign.
After calling the Politico article "anti-conservative," Graham whined: "This is why Politico is a liberal joke." If Politico is so liberal, why does the decidedly not-liberal Drudge Report like to link to it?
