MRC Is Unhappy That NY Times Is Reporting the Truth About George Allen
Topic: Media Research Center

We've detailed how the Media Research Center's "Tell the Truth" campaign doesn't apply to news organizations that tell the truth about Republican candidates -- in those cases, the MRC very much does not want the truth to be told.

That double standard strikes again in a June 14 MRC TimesWatch article by Clay Waters, in which he complains that the New York Times is reporting accurately on the past of Virginia Republican Senate andidate George Allen -- or, in Waters' words, "injecting all the old controversies and rumors of racism into the current news cycle."

Waters makes no effort to contradict anything that was reported -- he's simply complaining that it was reported at all.

We've previously reported on MRC director of media analysis Tim Graham's longtime upset over the media reporting accurately about Allen's notorious "macaca" comment.
