MRC Touts Misleading Attack on Judicial Nominee
Topic: Media Research Center

A video highlighted at NewsBusters, hosted by MRC's Eyeblast video site, and promoted by MRC chief Brent Bozell as a "MUST WATCH" is an attack on Obama appeals court nominee Robert Chatigny, whom the video -- created by Naked Emperor News -- falsely portrays as having "empathy" for serial rapist and killer Michael Ross by granting motions delaying the killer's execution.

The video selectively cites facts, includes Ross' sexually charged testimony for inflammatory purposes, and downplays the fact that Chatigny believed that Ross' mental competency had not been addressed, particularly by Ross' defense attorney.

The video -- and the MRC -- also ignored the fact that a review panel of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, which included future Bush attorney general Michael Mukasey, cleared Chatigny of misconduct charges, calling Chatigny's  action, while "unusual," reasonable under the circumstances.

Shouldn't the MRC be ashamed to be promoting such a biased and factually deficient attack? We think so.
