Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell today announced a new campaign to inform the American public and corporate advertisers about leftist shows and on-air personalities who use their programs to spread vicious lies and hate.
As its first salvo, the campaign calls out 10 disreputable shows and hosts, documents their legacies of dishonesty and hate, and lists their advertisers.
“We are putting the radical left on notice that we are on to them. We know the inside-outside game that radical organizations are playing with their leftist allies in the ‘news’ media,’” Bozell said in a statement announcing the new campaign:
“The radical left’s effort to silence conservative media by targeting their advertisers with coordinated smear campaigns has gone unanswered, but today is the day the conservative movement fights back, but with a big difference: We'll tell the truth. And we'll take no prisoners.”
"Today we are putting ten shows, and their major corporate sponsors on notice that we are watching their every move. Additionally, we will be publicly listing the advertisers of these programs and asking them to defend their decision to continue airing ads on these shows.”
The initial 10 shows that “spread vicious lies and hate” exposed by the campaign are:
- POLITICS NATION WITH AL SHARPTON
- HARDBALL WITH CHRIS MATTHEWS
- ALL IN WITH CHRIS HAYES
- THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW
- THE LAST WORD WITH LAWRENCE O’DONNELL
- AM JOY
- ANDERSON COOPER 360
- CNN TONIGHT WITH DON LEMON
- RELIABLE SOURCES
- FAREED ZAKARIA GPS
