The founder and president of the Media Research Center said television networks are “aiding and abetting liberal violence by refusing to identify it as liberal violence,” citing the shooting at the Family Research Center and its subsequent scant coverage.

Writing in a NewsBusters.org column, Brent Bozell said, “Floyd Corkins, a volunteer for the last six months at the D.C. Center for the LGBT Community, marched into the Family Research Center with a gun and serious ammunition, denounced FRC’s policy positions, and shot a security guard in the arm before being subdued. Another hate crime, but this time against perhaps the pre-eminent pro-family organization in America. CBS gave the story 20 seconds. NBC spent 17 seconds.”

Bozell then drew a comparison of a volunteer for the Family Research Council shooting people at a gay group’s headquarters. “Never mind evening news,” he wrote. “This would be Breaking News! and for days there would be seemingly endless coverage of continued conservative hatred.”

“These networks are aiding and abetting liberal violence by refusing to identify it as liberal violence,” Bozell wrote. “Whether it’s vandalism at Chick-fil-A or rapes in Occupy Wall Street camps, these networks simply cannot find ‘news’ in liberal violence of any kind.”

Bozell noted that the networks “pounce on allegations of conservative hatred, even when there isn’t a scintilla of evidence,” he wrote, citing the Oklahoma City bombing, Aurora shootings, and the Gabby Giffords shootings. “On and on it goes, and over and over, it turns out not to be true,” he wrote.

The exception, Bozell wrote, was ABC News, which led its “World News” with the FRC shooting, while PBS and NPR ignored it entirely.
