Rich Noyes


Rich Noyes, the MRC’s Research Director, is responsible for supervising media analysts and researching and writing MRC Special Reports. He is also one of the editors of the Media Reality Check, a weekly fax report on news coverage which documents how issues are distorted and ignored, and Notable Quotables, MRC’s bi-weekly compilation of the latest outrageous, sometimes humorous, quotes in the liberal media.

Since joining to the MRC in 1999, Mr. Noyes was co-editor, with economist Stephen Moore, of Dollars & Nonsense: Correcting the News Media's Top Economic Myths, a book of essays by leading economists designed to correct the economic illiteracy that pervades much of the liberal media. He has written several in-depth studies on media bias, including “TV’s Bad News Brigade: ABC, CBS and NBC’s Defeatist Coverage of the War in Iraq,” “Megaphone for a Dictator: CNN’s Coverage of Castro’s Cuba, 1997-2002,” and “Clamoring for Kyoto: The Networks One-Sided Coverage of Global Warming.” Mr. Noyes has discussed the media’s liberal bias on CNN, MSNBC, the Fox News Channel, and a variety of radio talk shows. He has also authored articles which have appeared in the Washington Times, the New York Post, Investor’s Business Daily and Human Events.

Before he arrived the Media Research Center, Mr. Noyes studied the media at the Center for Media and Public Affairs, where he co-authored two books: The Video Campaign: Network Coverage of the 1988 Primaries, and Good Intentions Make Bad News: Why Americans Hate Campaign Journalism, published in 1995. He has also written for the Journal of Political Science, the American Enterprise, Forbes MediaCritic, and Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper.

A native of Agawam, Massachusetts, Mr. Noyes obtained a bachelor’s degree in political science from the George Washington University in 1987, and earned a master’s degree from Georgetown University in 1990. He currently lives in Falls Church, Virginia.
