Bozell Claims No "Serious" Group Celebrates Abortion Doctor's Death, Forgets About Randall Terry
Topic: Media Research Center

In his feb. 1 column, Brent Bozell takes exception to a documentary about abortion after the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller, in which one of the participants says that "When abortion doctors are assassinated, the political right has celebrated those assassinations." Bozell thundered, "This is a flagrant, shameless lie. Not one serious pro-life group on the political right has done that."

Bozell is silent, however, about his links to an anti-abortion extremist who essentially did just that. 

After Tiller's murder, Randall Terry danced on Tiller's grave, declaring that Tiller was a "mass murderer" and "was one of the most evil men on the planet; every bit as vile as the Nazi war criminals who were hunted down, tried, and sentenced after they participated in the 'legal' murder of the Jews that fell into their hands." As we've documented, CNSNews.com, which is a division of Bozell's Media Research Center, never reported that statement.

The MRC was until recently so simpatico with Terry's extremist videos that its MRCtv hosted Terry's videos. An October press release issued by Terry criticizes the MRC for taking down his video attacks on Samuel L. Jackson for an election-season video he made. The press release claims to quote an MRC official as saying that "While I may personally sympathize with the content, rules are rules and MRCTV cannot run political ads for campaigns."

Interestingly, for all his fulimation about how "not one serious pro-life group" expressed happiness at Tiller's death, at no point in his column does Bozell express outrage about it. Instead, he bashes the filmmakers for having "celebrated the abortionist."
