Media Research Center president Brent Bozell in a March 20, 2000, Los Angeles Times article about protests of Dr. Laura's short-lived TV show: It's "perfectly acceptable for an organization to lobby to cancel a program they think is inappropriate":
Organizations such as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation have sought to effect change through a dialogue with the TV and film industry, educating executives and creative talent about the need for positive minority images. Even the alliance group, however, recently joined the call for Paramount not to proceed with Schlessinger's show.
L. Brent Bozell III--chairman of the watchdog Media Research Center, which regularly monitors and chides Hollywood for its sexual content and assaults on family values and morality--doesn't approve of the cause, but conceded: "I don't fault them for their tactics. It's perfectly acceptable for an organization to lobby to cancel a program they think is inappropriate. I don't think there's anything wrong with that at all."
Media Matters weren't listening to her show to expose her as a racist. They object to her social conservatism, her pro-life, pro-marriage stands, and were looking for a way to silence her. This is the second time Dr. Laura has been censored by the Left. Her TV show was killed and buried (almost before it aired ) in 2000 by gay-left censors with the website StopDrLaura.com.
