 Media Reality Check

Top reporters, editors, producers, talk show hosts and columnists, as well as members of Congress and heads of public policy organizations receive documented proof of the media's liberal bias in the News Analysis Division's usually weekly Media Reality Check. Written by Director of Media Analysis Rich Noyes, the Media Reality Check serves as an excellent reference for the most egregious examples of media bias.

"No organization better informs the public or holds the big media accountable for its incredibly biased and unprofessional ways than the Media Research Center. There is not an email or a printed publication of theirs that I do not read. MRC is the best at what it does and is having an impact on how the news is covered."
