Leo Brent Bozell IV, a son of right-wing activist L. Brent Bozell III, has been charged in federal court for his alleged role in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.
Bozell IV faces three counts—disorderly conduct, entering a restricted building, and obstructing an official proceeding—according to a complaint unsealed Feb. 16.
Bozell’s father is the founder of the conservative Media Research Center, a self-described watchdog group that aims to “expose and neutralize the propaganda arm of the Left: the national news media.” His Parents Television Council campaigns to bring “responsibility and decency to the entertainment industry in answer to America’s demand for positive, family-oriented television programming,” and the Culture and Media Institute, which Bozell III founded in 1987, rails against what it claims is “liberal bias” throughout the American media. Bozell III is outspoken about his extreme anti-abortion views, and recently complained on the Fox Business network that all Republicans have been unfairly tarred as riot participants.
