NewsBusters Ignores Boss' Link to Domestic Terrorist
Topic: NewsBusters

A Jan. 3 NewsBusters post by Tom Blumer criticizes the Huffington Post for allowing William Ayers to post there, asserting that "The mainstreaming of a domestic terrorist continues apace." Blumer goes on to complain that Ayers' HuffPo bio contains "no mention of his violent Weather Underground history."

If Blumer is so worried about the "mainstreaming of a domestic terrorist," he need not look farther than the organization that publishes his blog posts.

As we've detailed, the Media Research Center has given prominent roles to G. Gordon Liddy -- featured "acceptor" of awards at its annual awards banquet at least twice, judge for the awards at least three times, awards show guest numerous other times -- despite Liddy's record of planned domestic terrorism. The MRC has also whitewashed Liddy's 1994 remarks about how to kill a federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent.

Blumer might want to ask MRC honcho Brent Bozell about his relationship with Liddy before criticizing Ayers any further.
