According to Brent Bozell, President of the Media Research Center, “all the surveys show overwhelmingly the public believes (a) the media are biased, (b) believes it’s a liberal bias and (c) doesn’t trust reporters to give the news.” In a two part Full Disclosure interview, Mr. Bozell said “the American public is onto the press.”
In this two-part interview with host Leslie Dutton, Bozell points out that the first publication to expose Valerie Plame as a CIA agent was not Bob Novak or Time Magazine but The Nation, a liberal organization and he says this fact has never been reported by the news media.
Also in the Full Disclosure® interview Bozell describes the biased media coverage of the Bush-Kerry 2004 Presidential campaign citing the news media failure to investigate John Kerry’s 1971 testimony before the U. S. Senate where he claimed to have “participated in the burning of villages, the raping of women, and the killing of children”. He then speculates why didn’t (the news media) ask Kerry, Did you rape women? Did you burn villages? Did you kill children? “I think the American people would like to know.” He went on to say that was far more important than where George W. Bush was for two weeks on vacation in 1971. Bozell then challenged anyone to check the record books in the (2004) campaign saying nobody investigated the Kerry testimony before the U. S. Senate.
