Times Square Billboards Blast Media Bias

The Media Research Council does tremendous work monitoring the liberal, biased maintream media.  This new campaign push will put the CBS, NBC, ABC, The New York Times, The Washington Post and all the other Obama Lapdog "journalists"  on notice that they are being watched.

A conservative watchdog group that documents liberal bias in the media has rented five huge billboards in Manhattan’s Times Square as part of its “Stop Censoring the News” campaign.

The billboards seek to “educate the public about how certain media outlets apparently are spinning their coverage or simply censoring news critical of the Obama administration to protect and promote a liberal agenda,” CNS News reported.

The billboards, totaling 3,800 square feet, were rented by the Media Research Center (MRC), parent organization of CNS News.

Two of the billboards read, “It’s Time the Liberal Media Stop Censoring the News,” and two others read, “Start Telling the Truth” above an image of three monkeys, labeled ABC, CBS, and NBC, in a “see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil” pose.

The monkeys “apparently neither see, speak, nor hear anything negative about the Obama administration or about liberals in Congress,” CNS News observed.

The fifth billboard reads, “Demand the Media Stop Censoring the News!”
MRC President Brent Bozell said in a statement: “During the 2012 election, the liberal media moved beyond bias. They actively and repeatedly censored any story that could have jeopardized Barack Obama’s re-election.

“Now in 2013 they’re censoring any story that could slow his administration’s second-term agenda. Their behavior is as disgraceful as it is unprecedented.”

The signs in Times Square are close to the headquarters of The New York Times and the offices for the news divisions of the three major broadcast networks.

“These billboards — located in the hub of the liberal media’s nerve center — put them on notice,” said Bozell. “The American people are sick and tired of the establishment media’s collusion with the Obama administration, and won’t stand for a corrupt press willing to censor the news.”

The billboards will remain in place for several weeks and will be viewed by an estimated 1.4 million people each week, according to the MRC.

The campaign’s website,, states that the MRC “has documented numerous cases of the media suppressing stories like ‘Fast and Furious,’ Solyndra, Benghazi, and others, stories that would have been major news if there had been a conservative in the White House.”
