Bozell Statement on MSNBC's Slander of Town Hallers As 'Racist' Via Selective Video Editing
NewsBusters.org ^ | 08/21/2009 | Seton Motley

Media Research Center President and NewsBusters.org Publisher Brent Bozell today issued a public statement in which he demanded that MSNBC accept responsibility and apologize for concocting a racially charged "news" story that falsely accused a supposedly white health reform protester of carrying a gun out of hatred for a black President.

NewsBusters.org's Kyle Drennen initially reported on this on Tuesday, and yesterday provided an update:

From Bozell's statement: "MSNBC owes this man and the tens of thousands of protestors a public apology. It should also extend that apology to its tens of thousands of viewers."

I think Mr. Bozell has inflated MSNBC's viewership.

"Contessa was speaking generally and not about that specific person with the automatic weapon."

How do you "speak generally" on this subject? There has only been one black president in U.S. history, so she is obviously speaking about Obama. She did say that there is talk of racial undertones here, so she was obviously speaking about this event in Phoenix.

IOW, the real question is how dumb does MSDNC think we are?

Is MSNBC (whatever that is) trying to compete with “The Daily Show” for “real” news?

MSNBC reminds me of a Public Access Channel. It’s there and available for programming by anyone, but no one watches it.

I think he is referring to LSDNC. That network full of psychotic, hallucinating loonies reading DNC press releases.

And who in the heck names a child Contessa?!

That has to be one horribly messed up woman. Of course, her presence on MSNBC confirms that.

MSNBC apologize for racist, slanderous lying about the news?

They will wee wee themselves before even considering that their democratic propaganda is anything but unvarnished truth.

It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party.

Dumb enough to vote for Obama, dumb enough to swallow their daily offering of sludge-for-news.

I'm sure Wal-Mart, P&G and the various insurance companies out there will be removing their advertising dollars. They should have done it years ago simply as a matter of good business practices.

MSNBC owes this man and the tens of thousands of protestors a public apology. It should also extend that apology to its dozens of viewers.

I swear I met two college kids saying they get their news from guess where

Jon Stewart

They really thought that it was a news outfit .

After I pointed out it was just comedy and many other issues they agreed that they never knew much about what is really going on.

I just hope these young uns actually understand how much they are being lied to by the radical left and comedy outfits like MSNBC, Daily show, NBC

I don’t watch this crap either, but I don’t think they delve too deeply into making fun of Dear Leader. If they did, they’d be off the air.
