Media Research Center Founder and President Brent Bozell joined the Wednesday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. to sound off on the liberal media’s coverage of President Biden’s classified documents scandal.
Host Stuart Varney began with highlights from Tuesday’s firecracker of a White House press briefing before asking Bozell: “[H]as the media finally turned against the White House, in your judgment?”
Bozell replied that the media's reaction can be boiled down to six stages of behavior.:
Stage one, when the story first came out, they were dismissive. CBS’s Adrianna Diaz said “the self-reporting here is probably the single most important part of this situation. It's completely different from Mar-a-Lago.” The second stage was they turned this and they complained about Republicans. Don Lemon was doing nothing but attacking about — attacking the Republicans for this.
The scandal only grew, meaning a stage three with the press “turning reluctantly against Biden after the first — after the second group of — of — of boxes were found.”
Bozell added stage four had the liberal media becoming “even more skeptical of Biden” last Thursday when Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel ahead of five and six: “Stage five is the interesting — this is where there are right now. They've grown frustrated with the White House. They know the White House is stonewalling. They know the White House is not forthcoming. Stage six is what's going to happen next.”
If the Republicans or if the government come up — don't come up with something, this story is going to die. It's going to flatline. If the Republicans come up with another step, another misdoing by this — this administration, the walls are going to cave in on it. The media are — it's going to be Armageddon time where the media are concerned. They're just not going to put up with this.
