MRC's Brent Bozell Hits Media Double Standard on Christie Scandal Vs. IRS

January 10, 2014 - 5:58 PM

[See video cross-posted here.] Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared with Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto to slam the "obnoxious" double standard in how journalists have covered Chris Christie's traffic scandal in two days versus the scant number of stories on the IRS controversy over six months. According to Bozell, "It really goes to show you how out of control this left wing so-called news press is." Cavuto explained, "The big three networks alone devoted 17 times more coverage to this story in one day, one day, than they devoted to the IRS scandal in six months." A second analysis my the MRC finds the disparity is now up to 44-to-one.
