Liberal media coverage of Covington High School students “is not honest journalist’ – it’s just an agenda-driven smear campaign – Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell said in a statement issued Wednesday:

“NBC and the liberal mob media have zero concern for the truth. It does not matter to them that a new video, which is now days old, cleared the Covington kids of wrongdoing. It does not matter to them that this non-story has resulted in death threats to these innocent Catholic kids and their families. And, clearly, it does not matter to them that Nathan Phillips, the adult who instigated the confrontation, has told multiple lies about the incident. The only thing that matters to the leftist media is perpetuating the false narrative that a group of pro-life boys donning “MAGA” hats are racist. This is not honest journalism, this is a public hit job designed to entertain Trump-hating liberal America.

“At the very worst, this is a story of a group of teenage boys acting like, well, teenage boys. Since when do the minor missteps of high school kids warrant five days of national news coverage? NBC and the rest of the liberal media should be ashamed for the way they have treated them. Nick Sandmann and the other students of Covington Catholic deserve more than an apology, they deserve to have their names cleared.”
