Welcome to NewsBusters, a project of the Media Research Center (MRC), America’s leading media watchdog in documenting, exposing and neutralizing liberal media bias.
In August of 2005, the MRC launched the NewsBusters blog to provide immediate exposure of national media bias, unfairness, inaccuracy, and occasional idiocy. National talk-radio stars often read from articles on the blog, touting the latest nugget from “our buddies at NewsBusters.” Even the Washington Post has noticed the “feisty blog” run by “the best-known and best-funded conservative watchdog.”
With a sophisticated 24-hour recording operation and a huge archive of broadcast and cable news recordings dating back to 1987, NewsBusters plays a leading role in both short-term outrages and long-term trends in liberal media tilt.

Media Research Center
The Media Research Center's mission is to bring balance and responsibility to the news media. The MRC was founded on October 1, 1987 by L. Brent Bozell III, who set out to not only prove — through sound scientific research — that this bias exists, but also to neutralize its impact on the American political scene. NewsBusters.org is a project of the MRC's News Analysis Division, led from the founding in 1987 by Brent Baker, the MRC's Steven P.J. Wood Senior Fellow and Vice President for Research and Publications. For NewsBusters, Baker serves as Editor at Large. The division produces daily, weekly and special reports that document and counter liberal bias from television network news shows and major print publications.
NewsBusters Publisher Ed Molchany is also the MRC's Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. Tim Graham serves as Executive Editor of NewsBusters and is the MRC's Director of Media Analysis. Rich Noyes, the MRC's Director of Research, is the Senior Editor. Ken Shepherd is the Managing Editor. (From 2005 through 2013, Matt Sheffield provided leading editorial and technical services for NewsBusters.)
