A MIGHTY BIG PARTY

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

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.
