Media Matters catches Brent Bozell peddling a false comparison of inauguration costs in his Jan. 21 column: "For the record, the 'lavish'  Bush inaugural cost $43 million. Final tallies are not complete, but according to some sources, like the Guardian newspaper, the Obama inaugural will cost more than $150 million." In fact, the Obama costs include security, transportation, and other expenses incurred by federal, state, and local governments, while the Bush number does not.
As we noted, Bozell made the same false comparison in an appearance on "Fox & Friends."
