Brent Bozell devoted his weekly Fox News appearance to yet again ranting about what Martin Bashir said about Sarah Palin:
BOZELL: It talks about defecating in her mouth. That's what was put on there on a planned segment. It took 19 days for this man to resign, he was never fired for this, and on top of that, they praised him, Comcast praised him as a good man when he resigned after doing that.
As we've pointed out, this faux outrage is rather rich coming from someone who called President Obama a "skinny ghetto crackhead" and could not be moved to even faux outrage when Rush Limbaugh denigrated Sandra Fluke. Bozell knows all too well that if you never apologize, you never have to resign.
Further, Bozell employs a man named Matt Philbin, who also hurled misogynistic slurs at Fluke (and homophobic slurs at me). Has Bozell ever criticized Philbin's sleazy comments? Not that we're aware of -- indeed, Philbin remains an MRC employee.
Unless Bozell can hold his side and his own employees to the same standard he applies to non-conservatives, he should simply shut up. But keeping silent doesn't keep the big bucks rolling into the MRC, does it?
