Media Matters vs. AIM

After hearing yet another "liberal media" comment on the TV the other day, I took a quick look at what are arguably the two most prominent media watchdog organizations, on the right and Media Matters for America on the left. The two sites could not be more different. One has actual close readings of newspaper articles and radio and TV transcripts, and the other has a predictable line-up of talking points. Click on the links and see for yourself. You may certainly argue that the talking points are all true and the media debunking is just partisan cherry picking, but the simple fact is that one of these websites is interested in analyzing media outputs whereas the other website, quite frankly, isn't.

This blog is based on a true story.
