Bozell Quits as PTC President
Topic: Media Research Center

Media Research Center president Brent Bozell has quit his other job, president of the Parents Television Council.

While the wire services are focusing on what the PTC has accomplished in pushing for a federal crackdown on allegedly indecent content on TV, they are ignoring Bozell's one notorious failure: his false accusations against World Wrestling Entertainment over the Lionel Tate case, in which a 12-year-old boy killed a 6-year-old girl. Bozell claimed that WWE was liable because the boy was allegedly imitating wrestling moves when he killed the girl.

The PTC was ultimately forced to pay $3.5 million and issue an public retraction and apology to WWE.
