Media's beef with conservatism

A conservative media watchdog says the mainstream media is falsely blaming conservatism for the Republican election defeats.

According to the Media Research Center (MRC), the liberal media has been shamelessly using the re-election of Barack Obama over moderate Mitt Romney as a way to scare the GOP away from re-embracing its winning conservative message ( see related article). The MRC has documented the media's effort to discredit and attack conservatives, the tea party, and Rush Limbaugh in a blatant attempt to splinter the Republican Party and its conservative base.

Robey, Christian (MRC)"There's clearly an agenda here to paint the loss as a result of the Republican Party embracing -- quote -- 'radical conservative ideas,'" asserts Christian Robey, political director with the MRC. "Of course what they're talking about are free-market ideas and pro-life principles -- the basic conservative principles."

If the GOP had won, Robey suggests the left-wing media would have claimed something entirely different.

"It would have been that Republicans moved to the center -- no doubt about it," he offers. "And the idea here is to basically tarnish conservatism because it is so ideologically opposed to what most of the media stand for."

The MRC political director adds that liberal media outlets discourage conservative GOP nominees because it helps their preferred candidates like Mitt Romney, John McCain and Bob Dole -- contenders who did not embrace conservatism and lost.
