article imageBillboard trucks urge ABC, CBS, NBC to 'tell the truth' in news

By Andrew Moran     Oct 10, 2010 in Politics
New York - Media Research Center, a group that researches liberal bias in the mainstream media, has decided to send billboard trucks to the Manhattan headquarters of ABC, CBS and NBC that urge them to "tell the truth" in their reporting of the news.
For decades there have been accusations from the liberals that the media is conservatively biased. Meanwhile, the conservatives accuse the media of having a liberal bias in their news coverage of certain events. Who is telling the truth?
For eight hours per weekday over the next four weeks, Media Research Center (MRC) will have billboard trucks in front of the Manhattan headquarters of ABC, CBS and NBC that urge those networks to “tell the truth,” according to CNS News. It will also have a truck in front of the New York Times.
Furthermore, the MRC will post billboard trucks in Washington, D.C. in front of the headquarters of CNN, Newseum, the National Press Club, Politico and the Washington Post. The watchdog is running a huge campaign of advertisements on the Internet and on conservative radio programs.
President of the MRC, L. Brent Bozell, explained that the goal of this year is to urge the major networks to “stop pushing an agenda and start telling the truth.” The campaign wants networks to report on the growth of government, how it imposes themselves on our lives and the dangers of deficits and debt: “They also need to tell the truth about the efforts to turn our country into a European-style Socialist state.”
In a campaign video called “Tell The Truth 2010,” Bozell goes into detail: “We can’t stop our efforts, we’ve got to maintain that intensity of letting the American people know exactly the fact that the socialist agenda of the Obama administration is being pushed by those same people who then look at you in the camera and say, ‘I’m nothing but an objective journalist.’ No, they’re not. They’re participants.”
Liberty News Online reports that the MRC is planning initiatives all over the country if this movement is successful. In order to “expose the slander and lies,” the organization is going to put up billboards all over the country and establish even more radio and television advertisements.
