About

Media Matters for America is a progressive research center that monitors, analyzes, and corrects conservative misinformation in the media.

Launched in May 2004, Media Matters put in place, for the first time, the means to systematically monitor a cross section of print, broadcast, cable, radio, and web media outlets for right-wing misinformation — news or commentary that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the conservative agenda — every day, in real time.

For ten years, we've meticulously documented conservative talking points masquerading as news. But we keep getting the same question: how can I help Media Matters' truth-telling efforts?

We're encouraged by this. The fact is, we can't change the media all on our own from Washington. We need you.

That's why we added campaigns to the main Media Matters mission. Our actions are based on past successes at delivering accountability for reckless vitriol, getting corrections, and unslanting biased news coverage.

Don't let right-wing lies poison our news media. Add your voice today.
