MRC founder and president Brent Bozell appeared on the Fox Business Network on Thursday to address the gridlock in Congress over a fiscal-cliff deal. Varney suggested it was “hard-core conservatives” like Bozell who would be blamed if there is no agreement. Bozell insisted there’s no focus on spending cuts, only on taxes.
Bozell slammed the “absolute dishonesty on both sides. No one wants to address the fiscal insanity that’s going on in Washington, DC.” Varney also asked Brent for his opinion on the coverage of the pro-Obama media (video below):
“They’re coddling Barack Obama.This guy is filing his nails while the Republicans twist themselves into knots. The media are giving Obama a complete pass on this one. They’re not holding his feet to the fire on anything. And they’re keeping the gunfire on the Republicans at all times.”
