Rove Aide Calls Bozell 'Hater' with 'Weird Axes to Grind'
Breitbart.com ^ | February 6, 2013 | Larry O'Connor

Posted on 02/06/2013 4:03:51 PM PST by Timber Rattler

When given the opportunity to rebut the sharp criticism leveled Tuesday by Brent Bozell directed at Karl Rove, Jonathan Collegio of Rove's American Crossroads might have made things worse, if not personal. "Bozell is a hater and he also has a long sordid history hating Karl Rove. He has weird personal axes to grind," said the spokesman for Rove's influential Super PAC.

Who is this Bozell? It seems I should know about or have heard of this person! Am I having a “senior moment?”

These people are just beyond stupid. Look at the bio from this “wizard of smart:”

Award-winning public affairs and communications executive, political party spokesman, public speaker and political commentator, Jonathan Collegio is director of communications for American Crossroads, the preeminent conservative 527 political campaign organization in Washington DC. Collegio serves as chief spokesperson and grassroots, online and media strategist for the organization.

They forgot to add “out of touch jack ass, with a rather pedestrian IQ”

Brent Bozell. Media Research Center founder. Newsbusters... CNS News... MRC annual Dishonor Awards... I’m sure there’s more that I can’t think of on an empty stomach (supper’s cooking, I’m starved).

Oh, and nephew of Wm F. Buckley.

A Karl Rove aide ranks a bit lower in my book that an aspiring rapper and a poodle with the clap.

I rate Brent Bozell right up there with the Breitbart organization, no wonder Rove and his pals hate him.
He's one of the few, very few, reasons to watch Fox anymore when he's on Hannity.

Anyone against Backstabber Rove, protector of Soros
and the Romney Agendae sounds like a relative winner.

Don’t address the criticism. Just call your critic weird and move on. You are awesome.

Now shut up Karl.

Brent Bozell: “John McCain made a bold choice
in not merely picking a woman, but picking a pro-life woman
courageous enough to put her motherhood
where her mouth is. Now the media want him to pay dearly
for it. The idea that they would lecture anyone
else about rumor-mongering or “Swift-boating”
ought to be laughed off the public stage.”

By contrast, Tokyo Rove attacked Gov. Palin and her
children. These vicious attacks, led by
Rove and Romney-the-meek (except against women)
put Obama into power.

Brent Bozell is a conservative and a good guy but I always see him as too old school for the politics/campaigns these days.

Not in his principles or convictions but in his method.

Look at the way Media Matters does it: A Republican says something questionable, let alone foolish or objectionable, and MM and the Dems pour the coals of hell on the guy (or especially on the gals) for a month straight.

When Scarborough or Rove or one of the leftists creates some sickening lie about a conservative candidate, Bozell’s tactic is to go on Hannity, replay the smear and then joke and protest a bit about how unfair it is.

As I say I appreciate Bozell and he’s a workhorse. But the Breitbart people seem to realize that we are in a war here, and the other side wants America to lose.

If we want any of this to make a difference, in the event that America survives Obama’s new “flexibility”, we need to work on making it impossible to steal an election. That’s all that matters at this point - not the people who vote but the people who count the votes.

2008 was a coup and 2012 was stolen. Sure, the PR stuff can try to keep an election from being close enough to be stolen, but as long as we’ve got the 47% voting for their sugar-daddy the vote is going to be close enough to steal. IIRC it’s something like 5-6 percentage points we have to be ahead by, in order for the gap to be insulated from voting theft.

The only thing I dislike when he's on Hannity is that Hannity should shut up and let Brent talk without constantly interrupting.
For that matter also when Michelle Malkin is on too, just shut up Hannity and let them talk, let them make their points without distractions.

Hannity, like OReilly, is under the mistaken impression that the show is about him. It's not. Neither has anything new or interesting to say. Sometimes their guests do.

I think the jokes are Hannity's fault. That's his two-note song, repetition of the same talking points, and then the same jokes about it.

Bozell has been fighting to get broadcast time for decades until FNC came along.

To understand how much the MSM must hate Bozell, just look at how they treated Reed Irvine and Accuracy In Media (AIM) during the 1980s and 1990s. I recall wathing the Nightline round-tables back then when Ted Koppel would have Irvine in the audience only to mock him when he went to the microphone to ask a question of the panel.

Don’t disagree with you guys.

And I don’t know the full extent of Bozell’s activities with Media Research, CNS, etc.

But when I see or hear him he is reacting to something those bad fellas on the other team are saying or doing.

My idea is that when Scarborough trashes Cruz then Bozell should be out there the next day pointing out that Scarborough killed an intern (let him prove he didn’t), lied on television about her death, destroyed his own family over another woman and left his constituents in the lurch when he fled Congress to escape the fate of Gary Condit.

And maybe Bozell can’t do it all but he can send out deputies to scorch the freakin’ earth. And he and OTHER conservative spokespeople have to do the same with Rove, with Chris Christie, with anyone who pops up and pops off.

This is what they are doing to us, day in day out. If we are to win the next election we’re going to have to take out the opposing messengers, including virtually all the media. Take them on and take them out, rather than trying to draw them in!

Bozell is the founder of MRC. MRC has been around for decades. They wrote the definitive paper on media bias, focusing on the bias of exclusion of news.

In later years, MRC created sub-entities like the NewsBusters website, which pre-dated Media Matters. Media Matters was patterned after Newsbusters.

MRC also formed CNSNews as an original news reporting site.

Bozell was much more fiesty in the days before FNC. He was usually the opposing view who was shouted over after about 30 seconds of speaking on CNN or ABC Nightline.

I agree with you that today, appearing on FNC Hannity might be too cozy an environment from which to get angry and in-your-face. Especially the way that Hannity moderates his show, wasting too much time on his repetitive jokes.

scorch the freakin’ earth.

Agree with that totally, that's what the Rats and Rinos do with perfect precision.
Rove is gearing up to do it even better right now, well before 2014 and 2016.

We just have to keep finding candidates who are willing to throw a punch and do it with some style.

Hell, our candidates can run against Potbelly Rove.
