Issue Area: Elections/2008 -- Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) -- One of the most important
functions of the U.S. media is to give voters the tools to make informed decisions at the ballot box. But
instead of open forums where qualified candidates debate issues of national significance, we see a contest
warped by candidate mudslinging, dubious fact-checking and skewed issue coverage that obsesses on the
irrelevant and trivial. Judging media coverage of elections is often reduced to asking whether the press is
fair to this candidate or that. FAIR's media critics go further to explore the better question - whether the
press is fair to the American voters. National media watch group.
