Bozell on Whoopi Goldberg: "[D]og muzzles, for people's mouths, sometimes are a very good thing"

http://mediamatters.org/items/200408090003 As a guest on the August 5 edition of CNN's Crossfire, the founder and president of the conservative Media Research Center, L. Brent Bozell III, said, "[W]hen I think of the people like Whoopi Goldberg and the kind of things they say. I'm reminded that muzzles, dog muzzles, for people's mouths, sometimes are a very good thing."

This isn't the first time that a conservative has mentioned muzzles in reference to a woman expressing her political views. Two days earlier, as Media Matters for America noted, as a guest on MSNBC Live, former Republican presidential candidate and regular CNN contributor Bob Dole said of Senator John Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, "There's not a muzzle big enough out there, I don't think."
