A MIGHTY BIG PARTY
The Media Research Center is marking its 30th anniversary as a mighty conservative press watchdog this year, and has just revealed some details for an upcoming celebration of same.
Staged at the spectacular National Building Museum in the nation’s capital, the evening gala will feature the organization’s founder, Brent Bozell. Columnist Cal Thomas serves as master of ceremonies; the guest list includes Rep. Mark Meadows, North Carolina Republican and chairman of the House Freedom Caucus; talk radio kingpins Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin; Fox News host Sean Hannity; feisty comedian Joe Piscopo; and radio host Chris Plante.
The big night is Sept. 21; a thousand guests are expected, and the party is expected to sell out. Find the details at MRC.org/gala.
“Help us celebrate 30 years of the Media Research Center’s history of making life miserable for liberals in the media,” Mr. Bozell advises.
“My own reaction to the Democrats’ words was to consider calling a copyright attorney about Clinton, since a decade ago I wrote a book about abortion and related issues titled ‘The Party of Death,’” writes Bloomberg View columnist Ramesh Ponnuru, also senior editor for National Review.
Indeed, his book was published in 2006; the full title is “The Party of Death: The Democrats, the Media, the Courts, and the Disregard for Human Life.”
Oh, the irony.
“I wrote a book calling Democrats ‘the party of death.’ They howled. Now they’re saying the same thing about Republican health care,” observes Mr. Ponnuru.
