Counterspin is production of FAIR – Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting – a national media watch group. FAIR has been offering well-documented criticism of media bias and censorship since 1986. They advocate for greater diversity in the press and scrutinize media practices that marginalize public interest, minority and dissenting viewpoints. As an anti-censorship organization, they 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.
Counterspin airs every Wednesday on GMCR at 4pm.
Visit the Counterspin page on the FAIR website for more information and access to their extensive archives.
