Bozell: After Journolist Expose, No One Better Ever Deny Liberal Media Bias Again

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell today reprimanded members of the press in light of the recently exposed e-mails from Journolist that show reporters engaged in a blatant, deliberate campaign to smear conservatives.

The Daily Caller exposed shocking e-mails from liberal journalists this week from a Journolist, an online resource for members of the press. Among these e-mails were blatant intentions of covering up the Rev. Jeremiah Wright news in 2008 to protect Obama, attempts to smear conservatives as racist, and an NPR producer saying that if conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh were dying, she would "laugh loudly like a maniac and watch his eyes bug out."

Brent Bozell issued the following statement in response:

"The revelation of these e-mails simply proves that we have been right all along. The liberal media have no interest in being fair or unbiased. In fact, they are deliberately violating any sense of journalistic ethics.

"There is no excuse - none - for the attitudes and lack of professionalism these so-called journalists displayed not only in these e-mails but in their reporting. Any member of the media that was privy to these Journolist emails, and remained silent, is just as much to blame as the folks that crafted these e-mails. Their silence indicts them.

"We said in 2008 that the media were making excuses for Jeremiah Wright and now we have the proof. And we learned from the Daily Caller that these people went so far as to say that Rush Limbaugh 'deserves' their hate.

"Sadly, I am not surprised, as this is what we have been exposing year after year about the media. And it's exactly why Americans refuse to trust them."
