Kennedy Derangement Syndrome Watch
Topic: Media Research Center

The Media Research Center's Tim Graham has long been a Kennedy-hater, to the point of helping his MRC colleagues repeatedly misrepresent a statement by the writer of a profile of Ted Kennedy to portray it as praise when, in context, it was meant to be criticism.

So it's no surprise to see Graham whine in a Sept. 2 NewsBusters post, under the headline "Will the Network 'News' Ever Stop Kennedy Shoe-shining?" that "The network news divisions just never stop making deals to promote the Kennedy family and the omnipresent Kennedy mythology and mystique," further complaining that an upcoming Kennedy special on ABC "carries the usual assumption that every last American finds it endlessly fascinating to ponder the lives of these allegedly heroic, historic, and glamorous people."

This comes, by the way, from the same organization that does quite a bit of shoe-shining of the mythology and mystique of Ronald Reagan, devoting entire reports to burnishing his legacy.
