MRC Upset That NY Times Fact-Checked Romney
Topic: Media Research Center

The Media Research Center may be running a "Tell the Truth!" campaign, but as we've documented, it opposes telling the truth when it comes to Republican presidential candidates.

The latest example is a Feb. 6 MRC TimesWatch post, in which Clay Waters is distressed that the New York Times  committed the shocking act of fact-checking Mitt Romney's claim that President Obama's economic policies "made it worse."

Waters framed the fact-checking as the Times "rushing to Obama’s aide [sic] after a mild attack by Mitt Romney." At no point did Waters challenge the facts forwarded in the fact-check.

At the MRC, "Tell the Truth!" really means "don't report anything negative about a Republican."
