Support Fairness (& Accuracy in Reporting)

One of the very first posts I wrote was one urging people to support FAIR - Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting. Repeating what I said then:
Lots of commentators, including Left I on the News, can note the fallacies of one or another story that appears in the press. But FAIR is the only one which treats this like a science, analyzing every broadcast over a period of a year or even four years to reach a conclusion, or producing articles like the WMD article with dozens of carefully selected citations to illustrate their points. A subscription to Extra! is just $21 a year and well worth it. Treat yourself to a great magazine and support the work of FAIR: subscribe here.
This being "end-of-the-year donation season," I'll repeat the suggestion today. The latest issue, just arrived yesterday, features no less than five articles (plus sidebars) on the subject of Hugo Chavez (and Venezuela) and the media; I haven't had time to read it yet, but it looks like great stuff. Only one of the articles is online; you can only read the others if you subscribe to their magazine, Extra!. Well worth the "investment," and it is an investment, an investment in creating a new and better world.
