CounterSpin is FAIR's
weekly radio show, hosted by Janine Jackson, Steve Rendall and Peter
Hart. CounterSpin is heard on more than 130 noncommercial stations
across the United States and Canada.
FAIR, the national
media watch group, has been offering well-documented criticism of media
bias and censorship since 1986. We work 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, we expose
neglected news stories and defend 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.
