MediaWatch

The MRC published MediaWatch as a monthly newsletter from 1988 through March, 1998, when it switched to bi-weekly production. The MRC ceased publication of MediaWatch in May of 1999 in order to concentrate resources on more timely analysis on our Web site. MediaWatch was dedicated to documenting liberal bias in reporting by reviewing news coverage of political and current events by the television networks, newspapers and weekly news magazines. Features included a monthly Study or Review, brief NewsBites, the Janet Cooke Award dissecting the most biased story of the month, the Revolving Door which tracked those moving between media and politics and On the Bright Side, a look at an unusually balanced story presenting facts ignored by the rest of the media.
