Thursday, October 12, 2006 turns 20 years!

FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting) turns 20 years today!
"Since 1986, FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting) has been monitoring mainstream media to document corporate bias, government influence and skewed reporting, while championing the efforts of independent journalism."
For those in New York City consider heading down to the party or perhaps donating to help their efforts.

I'd recommend anyone to listen to Counterspin, their excellent weekly radio show! (especially so if you live in the US). Description:
"CounterSpin provides a critical examination of the major stories every week, and exposes what the mainstream media might have missed in their own coverage. Combining lively discussion and a thoughtful media critique, CounterSpin is unlike any other show on the dial.
CounterSpin exposes and highlights biased and inaccurate news; censored stories; sexism, racism and homophobia in the news; the power of corporate influence; gaffes and goofs by leading TV pundits; TV news' narrow political spectrum; attacks on free speech; and more."

If you're in the US and Canada you can tune in or otherwise (or if you're located somewhere else in the world) download the podcast.
