MRC’s Brent Bozell Torches ‘Jerry Springer Present’ CNN as Raging COVID Hypocrites

Tuesday evening on the Fox Enterprise Community, Media Analysis Heart Founder and President Brent Bozell joined host Liz MacDonald on The Night Edit to lambaste a liberal media double customary that ran rampant in 2020 and has continued into 2021 with widespread fawning over New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo’s failed coronavirus response versus ridicule of Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis’s plan to combat the virus.

Talking of CNN specifically (in gentle of a petty spat with DeSantis), Bozell astutely dubbed them “the information equal of The Jerry Springer Present with a penchant for the efficiency artwork and smugness as a substitute of stories, attacking DeSantis and coddling Cuomo from the beginning of the pandemic to distribution of the vaccine.

 

 

MacDonald requested Bozell what he manufactured from CNN’s mind-set after they feigned outrage that DeSantis “was mainly placing seniors first earlier than important employees when it got here to vaccinations” by permitting these 65 and older to be vaccinated. Regardless of CNN’s bellyaching, the CDC just lately amended its suggestions to reflect what was carried out within the Sunshine State.

“[L]ook on the numbers. The numbers inform the story. Once more, the yard of the information media. Take a look at Florida versus New York. In Florida, 823 folks per 100,000. New York, 723 folks per 100,000. One — solely one-third of the vaccinations obtainable have been given within the state of New York. Just one quarter of the vaccinations being obtainable have been distributed in New York Metropolis,” Bozell added.

Bozell additionally cited out this gorgeous statistic that 6.four million doses of the smallpox vaccine “have been distributed within the metropolis for smallpox in lower than one month” in 1947, however over 70 years later, Cuomo’s New York hasn’t been in a position to come shut with COVID.

Reflecting a broader level concerning the left, Bozell identified how “the left at all times has to micromanage the whole lot. DeSantis is saying let anyone over 65 get it. And guess what? In the present day the federal authorities stated DeSantis was proper.”

Earlier within the phase, Bozell slammed the media’s disdain for DeSantis even though, “in the intervening time that Donald Trump loses,” Cuomo said on Monday that COVID-related lockdowns and restrictions must be loosened or else there can be nothing left to reopen.

To make issues much more pathetic on the media’s half, Bozell highlighted how most main information organizations are anchored from New York and thus Cuomo’s ineptitude needs to be high of thoughts:

[Y]ou cannot maintain these sort of — of requirements the place folks merely weren’t allowed to stay and the state has been falling aside and everybody has been seeing. In some unspecified time in the future, that is actually exceptional — in the intervening time that Donald Trump loses, all of the sudden, Cuomo says, we will not maintain it anymore, we received to open all of it up. The media needs to be — look, Liz, I can perceive the media not masking what is going on in Oklahoma or Nebraska, or Texas. They do not go there. They do not perceive these states however we’re speaking their very own yard that Cuomo and de Blasio have destroyed. You’ve received to be kidding me. One yr after you destroy our state, now all of the sudden we now have to reopen it?

6:36 p.m. Jap

MACDONALD: Okay, let’s welcome again to the present, Media Analysis Heart President Brent Bozell. Brent, your tackle New York Governor Andrew Cuomo now sounding like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis saying you bought to maintain the economic system — get the economic system reopened as a result of we can’t have something to open if we do not it now. Your tackle that. 

BRENT BOZELL: It’s gorgeous, Liz. Oh, by the way in which, let me say, Liz, Liz, Liz, Ijust made up for calling you Melissa, Melissa, Melissa, final week. God solely is aware of why I did that.

MACDOANLD: Oh, I don’t care. I did not even keep in mind. Go forward.

BOZELL: They hadn’t been listening to Liz who has been speaking about this for the final yr and hundred of Liz’s company who’ve been speaking about it for the final yr which you could’t maintain these sort of — of requirements the place folks merely weren’t allowed to stay and the state has been falling aside and everybody has been seeing. In some unspecified time in the future, that is actually exceptional — in the intervening time that Donald Trump loses, all of the sudden, Cuomo says, we will not maintain it anymore, we received to open all of it up. The media needs to be — look, Liz, I can perceive the media not masking what is going on in Oklahoma or Nebraska, or Texas. They do not go there. They do not perceive these states however we’re speaking their very own yard —

MACDONALD: Yeah.

BOZELL: — that Cuomo and de Blasio have destroyed. You’ve received to be kidding me. One yr after you destroy our state, now all of the sudden we now have to reopen it? 

MACDONALD: Alright, now we have this too. CNN complained on the air that Governor DeSantis of Florida was mainly placing seniors first earlier than important employees when it got here to vaccinations. Let’s watch this. 

BIANNA GOLODRYGA [on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront, 12/30/20]: Florida, one of many states bucking CDC suggestions and vaccinating seniors forward of some frontline employees. It’s a large enterprise an Ryan Younger is out entrance. 

MACDONALD: Okay. However then, you may have CNN host, saying hey, Governor DeSantis, you are “an ass” for pushing again on our reporter who was saying your vaccinations of seniors will not be enhancing. You are not doing a great job. He was first within the state to say you already know what? We’re going to vaccinate 65 and older. The CDC stated 75. He stated, no, we’re going to do 65 and older. Now the CDC says do 65 and older. What’s occurring over there at CNN? They’re attempting to have it each methods? 

BOZELL: CNN is turning into the information community — the information equal of the Jerry Springer Present. The rationale that that received testy as a result of this reporter wouldn’t shut up and let the governor reply a query. And that’s the response from CNN when he lastly says, please let me reply a query. Sure, take a look at the numbers. The numbers inform the story. Once more, the yard of the information media. Take a look at Florida versus New York. In Florida, 823 folks per 100,000. New York, 723 folks per 100,000. One — solely one-third of the vaccinations obtainable have been given within the state of New York. Just one quarter of the vaccinations being obtainable have been distributed in New York Metropolis. I got here throughout a statistic right now. In New York Metropolis, in 1947, 6.four million vaccines have been distributed within the metropolis for smallpox in lower than one month. Are you able to think about Cuomo having the ability to pull that? He will not permit it as a result of the left at all times has to micromanage the whole lot. DeSantis is saying let anyone over 65 get it. And guess what? In the present day the federal authorities stated DeSantis was proper.

MACDONALD: Proper. Brent Bozell you are at all times terrific. Thanks for becoming a member of us. We recognize it. 

BOZELL: Thanks, Liz.
