Media Bias

Regardless of the “leaning” of any publication or any article contained therein…always read with a critical eye.  If the article is a fair accounting of facts, it should be free of ideology.  If not, I’d recommend some additional investigation to confirm the veracity of the information being provided.  Source

    Good morning Diana McGinness,
    I too am retired and I now spend a lot of time on the computer.  In doing so I happened to run across your excellent site while I was looking for information on Foundations.  You have just what I was looking for on your Media Bias page with a list of about 155 foundations.
    However, there has not been any new information since October 15th.  I can imagine that operating in competition with the 24 hour network news can be a huge chalenge.  Hope you are well and will continue with your outstanding web site.
    I will be back and I hope there will be more up to date information.


  2. Thank you, Bud.

    And you are correct, needed to do some updating.  I’ve added a few more – a few that are a bit more obscure, but you can’t have too much information.  

    After returning to work two years ago, I’ve not been as active here as much as I’d like.
