MRC Tries Again To Revive Dead Non-Scandal
Topic: Media Research Center

Matt Philbin just won't stop beating the dead horse of the Lila Rose Planned Parenthood sting hoax.

In a March 7 MRC Culture & Media Institute article, Philbin and Erin Brown complained that the TV networks "devot[ed] 20 times more broadcast time to Charlie Sheen's porn stars and drug issues than to the Planned Parenthood video scandal and the subsequent vote in the House of Representatives to defund the organization."

But Philbin repeats the mistake he made in his previous attempt to rescusitate the non-scandal by  failing to mention that Planned Parenthood reported the "man posing as a pimp about obtaining abortions and birth control for the underage foreign prostitutes he traffics" to the FBI for the acts they were purporting to undertake -- an indisputable fact that completely undercuts Philbin's attempts to portray this as a legitimate "scandal."

Of course, trying to revive dead non-scandals seems to be MRC corporate policy.
