Media Research Center
Conservative media criticism organization
The Media Research Center was founded in 1987 by L. Brent Bozell III to combat supposed liberal media bias. It has been well-funded over the years by major conservative donor foundations and ExxonMobil. Besides publishing articles and reports on its various websites, it also sometimes launches ineffective boycott campaigns in attempts to protest media behavior. The MRC also objects to positive portrayals of LGBTQ people on television.
