Michael Medved claimed that two recent CNN specials, Broken Government and War on the Middle Class, are evidence that CNN "has been anti-[Bush] administration." In fact, both specials included criticism of and attacks on Democrats.
On CNN's Reliable Sources, host Howard Kurtz suggested that "liberal hypocrisy" was inherent in Democrats' objections to ABC's "docudrama" The Path to 9/11. Kurtz highlighted radio host Michael Medved's criticism of Democratic objections to the film and appeared to adopt Medved's assertion that Democrats are seeking to "censor" the film. But Kurtz neglected to discuss the "hypocrisy" in the reaction to the film by some conservatives -- including Medved.
Joe Scarborough, Michael Medved, and Brent Bozell defended the upcoming ABC miniseries The Path to 9/11, which is reportedly riddled with outright falsehoods and distortions. But their defense seems to contradict statements they made in 2003 when conservatives pressured CBS not to run a biopic that critics felt portrayed former President Ronald Reagan and former first lady Nancy Reagan in a negative light.
While defending Mel Gibson on CNN's Paula Zahn Now, conservative radio host Michael Medved declared that "Michael Moore has done far more damage to the Jewish community, particularly regarding the issue of Israel, than anything Mel Gibson has ever done."
