Considering Media Research Center President Brent Bozell last month called for the resignations of MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and Ed Schultz, it’s hardly eyebrow raising that today he rejected NBC’s apology regarding George Zimmerman‘s 9-11 call. At this point you’d think he’d insist that MSNBC President Phil Griffin take part in a dunking contest and you can guess who’d be in the tank.
Last night, NBC issued a two sentence explanation on the NBC apology regarding Zimmer. Bozell says that this is as dishonest as the original piece, and issued his own reaction.
“We reject this fraudulent apology,” said Bozell in a statement today. “We’re not surprised. After all, NBC ‘investigated’ itself. We again call on Comcast, not NBC, to investigate this matter — thoroughly, honestly, and professionally.”
Bozell asserts that NBC has lost its credibility as a news organization. “That final question is the most important. With this farce of an ‘apology’ NBC has lost its credibility — completely.”
