Brent Bozell was interviewed by C-SPAN`s Libby Casey on "Washington Journal."

"...Bozell addressed media coverage of the Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Arizona) shooting.
"Where`s the harm in having this discussion about civil discourse?" Casey asked Bozell."MP3MRC`s Bozell Shares Thoughts on Civil Political Discourse on C-SPAN`s `Washington Journal`, NewsBusters, January 14, 2011

My first thought was "How about you stop calling us racists and murderers long enough to talk about civility?" Bozell responds by talking about Sam Donaldson saying to him "Always professional, never personal," and then  an African-American caller (identified as such by his speech patterns) called in and told Bozell

  • "[Loughner]is the image that the Republican Party portrays of themself today"
  • "there are a lot of Americans out here who are fearful of the Republican Party"
  • "they see the Republican Party as being a terrorist organization now"

Bozell, in the name of civility, simply refuses to discuss it. By the way, the idea that this is the image the Republican Party "portrays of themself" is extra stupid.

It`s the media and left-wing Democrats that portray them that way.
