The Media Research Center's Curtis Houck whined in a July 24 post:
MSNBC’s The ReidOut barreled into Thursday with another hour priming viewers to hate law enforcement and dismiss urban crime as a fake, racist narrative concocted by President Trump to scare white people. But things went a step further when host Joy Reid refused to call out Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner for comparing federal agents to Nazis.
After introducing her lead-off panel, she spewed more lies about federal agents, claiming they’re mysteriously “snatching people off the streets” and have been both “unnamed.”
This gave Krasner the green light to hurl hate and venom at men and women who, like him, take an oath to uphold and defend the laws of our country. Without a challenge, he compared them to Nazis his father and uncles fought in World War II [.]
The MRC clearly knows who the real Nazis are, and it's ... social media?
Yep. MRC chief Brent Bozell unironically went there four days later in attacking social media operations for shutting dodwn a misinformation-laden video about coronavirus that had been retweeted by President Trump and Donald Trump Jr. (emphasis added):
Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube all worked in concert to mass censor material from President Donald Trump, his son, Donald Trump Jr., and a Facebook event hosted by the Tea Party Patriots that involved doctors discussing COVID-19.
Yet these tech companies are about to be grilled in Congress on July 29 at an antitrust hearing.
“The Big Tech Gestapo are at it again! Facebook, Google, and YouTube went insane yesterday and again shut down free speech, removing a viral @BreitbartNewsvideo of a @TPPatriots event. Big Tech can’t be allowed to choose whose voice is heard,” said MRC President and founder L. Brent Bozell on Twitter.
Needless to say, Bozell wasn't about to acknowledge that the video contained misinformation about treating coronavirus, and there's no evidence that any of the doctors in the video had ever, in fact, treated it.
Bozell seems pretty proud of going Godwin, but it undermines any MRC criticism of someone in the media using Nazi references to criticize Trump or other conservatives. Then again, the MRC has a long history of hypocrisy on the issue
