Sometimes corporate media don’t even pretend to hide what they’re doing. “With a Royal Baby Due, News Outlets Are on High Alert” was the headline of a recent New York Times story about TV preparations for the birth of the queen of England’s great-grandchild.
Meanwhile, the military trial of whistleblower and WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning is underway, not far from Washington, D.C. And the same networks flying reporters to London are skipping a historic, absolutely newsworthy event.
This is the corporate media.
And we–you and FAIR–can do something about it.
We are just a few donations away from making our summer fundraising goal. Will you be the one who puts us over the top?
FAIR’s well-documented research exposes the real bias in the corporate-owned media. The tilt in favor of conventional wisdom and official sources, the silencing of critical voices, the narrow range of debate.
These outlets don’t want to be questioned, criticized or challenged. But that’s what FAIR does every day. And we do it with the help of tens of thousands of readers, activists and supporters–people who know that the media aren’t going to change on their own.
We get to keep doing this work because you value it. So let’s wrap up our fundraising season strong–and keep doing what we do best.
Support FAIR today with your donation–a one-time show of support, or a monthly commitment to fighting media bias.
