MRC President on Louis C.K.’s Pulling out of Radio & TV Association’s Correspondents Dinner

MRC President L. Brent Bozell III on Louis C.K.’s Decision to Pull out of Radio & TV Association’s Correspondents Dinner


“‘Comedian' Louis CK’s decision is a victory for all civilized Americans. Louis CK is a crude misogynist swine of the first order."

A couple of years ago, “comedian” Louis CK “joked” on the Opie and Anthony radio show about Palin coming to the Republican convention “holding a baby that just came out of her f-ing, disgusting [C-word], her f-ing retard-making [C-word].”

Last night, MRC President, L. Brent Bozell III emailed letters to all the female anchors and on air TV correspondents at all broadcast and cable broadcast networks, numbering more than 60, asking them if they “stand behind the association's decision to give Louis C.K. an endorsement and give him the honor of sharing the stage with the President of the United States given his vile remarks – never even apologizing or even acknowledging he was wrong?” 

Bozell wrote similar language to the female journalists he reached out to in his letter: “If you are comfortable with the media reporting on Rush Limbaugh's comment - and apology - then you should have no problem calling for the Association which represents you to disinvite someone who has demeaned women in such an abhorrent way.”

Within approximately one hour of this email being sent out, Fox News Anchor, Greta Van Susteren posted a blog using similar language calling for a boycott of the Association’s dinner. Susteren wrote in her blog: “Another pig….and a media association has hired the pig, Louis C.K., to be their headliner for the big media dinner? Really? I am not going. I refuse to go. Everyone in the media should join me in this boycott.” "Good for Greta!" exclaimed Bozell. 

Due to this quick success, Mr. Bozell's hardcopy letters mailed out today have already served their purpose.
