MRC-Linked Protesters Bash Wis. Paper For Reporting Facts About Walker
Topic: Media Research Center

We've already pointed out that the Media Research Center's "Tell the Truth" campaign has nothing to do with telling the truth -- it's all about trying to intimidate the media into not reporting anything negative about conservatives.

This is proven yet again by MRC-inspired protesters in Wisconsin. from the Madison Capital Times:

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel endorsed Scott Walker for governor.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has supported much of Walker’s agenda.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has opposed the effort to recall Walker.

But the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has reported on the John Doe inquiry that has seen a number of Walker’s closest aides and contributors charged with felony wrongdoing.

Does that make the Journal Sentinel anti-Walker? Anti-Republican?
Is it a practitioner of “media bias”?

On Saturday, a handful of conservative activists picketed the offices of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel holding signs that read, “Don’t believe the liberal media.”

They said they were part of an effort by the Media Research Center to “keep media bias out of the 2012 election.”

They were not limiting their expressions of concern merely to the Wisconsin gubernatorial recall race.

But they did seem a mite ungrateful.

If newspapers that back Republicans like Scott Walker — and oppose efforts to hold Walker to account — are unacceptable to the guardians of right-wing orthodoxy, then it is clear that they are not concerned about “media bias.” They simply want stenography to power. That the Journal Sentinel has refused to provide that is very much to its credit.

That's right -- these MRC-inspired protesters attacked a pro-Walker paper for reporting something negative about Walker. Not because it was false, but because it was reported.

That's the ultimate agenda behind the MRC's anti-media campaign. Remember that.
