Leading Christian conservative Brent Bozell exposed as a fraud

Brent Bozell, a leading Christian conservative, has been exposed as a fraud.

Newspapers are dropping Bozell’s syndicated column after inside sources revealed Bozell does not write any of the material published under his name.

The revelations are ironic, and reveal a startling degree of hypocrisy. As TPM reports, Bozell staked much of his career on challenging what he claimed to be a lazy media establishment, all the while taking credit for and collecting profits from books and columns he never actually wrote.

Bozell, a longtime arch conservative crusader against feminism, secularism, marriage equality and other LGBT rights, has written about such topics as indecency, media violence, and anti-Christian sentiment, with articles appearing in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Washington Times, New York Post, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and National Review. He is also a regular on television, appearing frequently on the Fox News Channel program Hannity.

Raw Story reports Bozell, founder of the far-right Media Research Center, was exposed by media watchdog Jim Romenesko, who revealed that books and columns that Bozell had passed off as his own work were actually written by MRC employee Tim Graham.

Following the disclosure that Graham ghost-writes Bozell’s works, at least one newspaper (Iowa’s Quad-City Times) dropped Bozell’s column as a result, saying, “Bozell may have been comfortable representing others’ work as his own. We’re not. The latest disclosure convinces us Bozell has no place on our print or web pages.”

    I am originally from the Quad Cities. About time they dropped his column.

  • Peter Naus

    And are any of the papers explaining to their duped bigoted readers that the column has been dropped, or why?

    No, didn’t think so.

    • nogeeksadmin

      Despite the headline, only one paper is shown dropping him, and they most certainly did say why.

    Worst Milli Vanilli impression ever.

    Sometimes I think conservatism itself is nothing but a giant Poe, from the great leaders to the barroom gossips; so many people playing parts.

  • Oh!

    Like most conservatives, a man with a dirty mind…..(“,)**

    “…Bozell does not write any of the material published under his name.” Ironic — I believe the same could also be said of his god.

    But “arch conservative crusader”? How about “reactionary” — is there a reason that even left-leaning media sources are so afraid to use this word even when it clearly applies?

  • Tim Creekmore

    People claim the bible was written by God. Nope! This seems to be a religious problem for alot of religious “holy books”. The koran is also claimed to be written by allah. Nope!

      I dont know what book YOU supposedly read assclown, but no Christian anywhere claims the Bible was “written” by God…idiot

      • Tim Creekmore

        Your limited vocabulary, as seen in this post and another here, indicates you are not to be taken seriously. BYE

          one does’nt have to be loquacious or particularly long-winded to deal with mentally challenged individuals like yourself. I see you’ve taken the op to retort, albeit with a lame, crass response. #WINNING

    Bozo has also called President Obama a “skinny, ghetto crackhead.” Now I wonder if even that phrase was his own. One would think that the nephew of William F. Buckley, Jr. could at least write his own drivel. What a tool. Good riddance.

  • GunsmithKitten

    Not surprising. Brent’s little outfit got taken to the woodshed a few years back by WWE wrestler Mick Foley when he sued for slander; and decidedly won, proving point by point how much that the MRC lied about the company.

  • Jacobi Coriolanus

    So is O’Reilly going to run a segment calling Bozell a pinhead after using his mouthpiece to run every dissenting opinion down?

    Plagiarism is perfectly fine, if it’s done for Jesus.
