Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) is a national media watch
group that has been offering well-documented criticism of media
bias and censorship since 1986. FAIR works to invigorate the First
Amendment by advocating for greater diversity in the press and by
scrutinizing media practices that marginalize public interest,
minority and dissenting viewpoints. As an anti-censorship
organization, FAIR exposes neglected news stories and defends
working journalists when they are muzzled. As a progressive group,
FAIR believes that structural reform is ultimately needed to break
up the dominant media conglomerates, establish independent public
broadcasting and promote strong non-profit sources of information.
In The Way Things Aren't (The New Press) FAIR documents and
corrects over 100 whoppers told by Rush Limbaugh, pitting The Lyin'
King versus Reality in areas ranging from American history to the
environment, health care to rock and roll.
