Recognize and Counter Mainstream Media Bias

The July 2022 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” provides fresh information and insights about a systemic problem that perpetuates war and all kinds of injustice.  This systemic problem also interferes with our efforts to solve all of the problems we care about.

This TV interview is about bias in mainstream news media.

Media bias is very pervasive – and because it is so very pervasive, it is often not even noticed.  It distorts what people know about vital issues such as war and peace, the economy, race, the criminal justice system, the climate, and all of the other important issues.  Because mainstream news media distort public knowledge about issues, media interfere with solving the problems.

Glen said he is happy to interview Janine Jackson, a great expert from an organization whose materials he has been reading for many decades.

Since 1986 Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR, has been exposing various kinds of bias in mainstream, corporate-owned news media.  FAIR has been helping people to recognize the bias and learn more accurate information.

Janine Jackson is FAIR’s program director and the producer/host of FAIR’s syndicated weekly radio show CounterSpin.  She contributes frequently to FAIR’s newsletter Extra!  Her articles have appeared in many publications.
