At NewsBusters, Bashing Obama Is Media Criticism
Topic: NewsBusters

We're still wondering what this has to do with NewsBusters' stated mission of media criticism:

  • Tom Blumer writes in an Aug. 14 post of Obama's bus tour: "This habit of his of appearing in the proximity of GOP candidates and leaders is something you'd normally see from supposedly overconfident authoritarians in banana republic countries attempting to intimidate their opponents by stalking them. It is immature, betrays immense insecurity, is certainly not presidential, and gives one the distinct sense that he has nothing better to do."
  • Mike Bates asserts in an Aug. 17 post that President Obama is "the most inept president in history," adding: "More than one million in tax dollars for Obama to travel in luxury for a few days as he bashes Republicans.  We're the ones getting taken for a ride." 

If anyone at the Media Research Center is bothered by the idea that such overt partisan political activity on its websites violates the MRC's 501(c)3 status, they haven't shown it.
