MRC Runs Ad for New Book By Savage -- Whom Bozell Previously Denounced
Topic: Media Research Center

Michael Savage is one of the very few conservatives the Media Research Center has ever regularly criticized. After Savage engaged in his infamous "get AIDS and die" rant in 2003 on his short-lived MSNBC show, the MRC's Brent Bozell praised MSNBC for firing him (albeit while also complaining that the media "turn a blind eye to liberals in the media who spew the very same hateful venom at conservatives"). Bozell cited Savage in denouncing "shock jocks" who "wish death on members of their audience," called Savage "crazy Right," and reiterated his criticism in a May column by pointing out that "Savage was loudly condemned by conservatives (like yours truly), and MSNBC was congratulated when he was fired, though some of us also pointed out that MSNBC should never have hired this bigot in the first place."

So why is the MRC's NewsBusters site accepting advertising for Savage's new book?

Apparently all is forgiven, and even the most hateful remarks can be glossed over with the passage of time.
