From Brent Baker at MRC:

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell today praised MSNBC for firing host Michael Savage for wishing death to a caller into his show over the weekend. But he also pointed out the hypocrisy: The same media turn a blind eye to liberals in the media who spew the very same hateful venom at conservatives. “MSNBC was right to fire Michael Savage. His comments have no place in civilized debate. But neither did comments that have come from liberal icons of television such as Bryant Gumbel, Nina Totenberg and Julianne Malveaux — all of whom have said hateful things about conservatives, and none of whom has had to answer for it,” Bozell said.

The release than goes on to provide some quotes, like this one from the nationally syndicated on PBS show Inside Washington, July 8, 1995:

Host Tina Gulland: “I don’t think I have any Jesse Helms defenders here. Nina?”

ABC News/NPR Reporter Nina Totenberg: “Not me, I think he ought to be worried about what’s going on in the Good Lord’s mind, because if there is retributive justice, he’ll get AIDS from a transfusion or one of his grandchildren will get it.”

Or this one From To the Contrary on PBS, November 4, 1994:

USA Today Columnist/Pacifica Radio Talk Show Host Julianne Malveaux, on Justice Clarence Thomas: “You know, I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. Well, that’s how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person.”
