Media critic Brent Bozell hit back Wednesday at criticism of him made by MSNBC's Joe Scarborough on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"In this short exchange, you find a way to suggest three times that I'm 'very angry' with you. I'm not, Joe," Bozell, founder and president of the Media Research Center, said in an article posted on the organization's Newsbusters website. "You're not worth it."

Bozell was referring to a brief exchange between Malzberg and Scarborough in which the "Morning Joe" co-host slammed Bozell for being "very angry" at him for Scarborough's attacks on, for instance, former President George W. Bush, GOP White House candidates Mitt Romney and John McCain, and on "establishment Republicans," including Bozell.

"Brent Bozell was very angry at me because I said critical things about Mitt Romney — and he wrote about it," Scarborough told Malzberg. "He picked all the times that I criticized Mitt Romney's inept campaign. It was an inept campaign.

"And Romney was a guy who was pro-choice one year, pro-life the next year, pro-choice the next year . . . The guy was a flip-flopper. Bozell was very angry when I pointed these things out."

In his response, Bozell said: "I was never 'very angry' with you for saying critical things about Romney. I am critical of you for writing books at night lecturing Republicans on how they can win while spending your mornings on that network of yours doing what hosts on that network do: trashing Republicans at every opportunity."

Bozell responded to Scarborough's charges against "establishment Republicans" by saying: "You say that about anyone critical of you, including now me. Joe, tell me: Is it that you're foolish, or is this just intellectual dishonesty — again?"
