About the MRC

Our Mission: "To Create a Media Culture in America Where Truth and Liberty Flourish"

The Media Research Center is America’s premier media watchdog. Since 1987, the MRC has worked to expose and neutralize the propaganda arm of the Left: the national news media.

The MRC’s commitment to neutralizing leftist bias in the news media and popular culture has had a critical impact on the way Americans view the liberal media.

The MRC is able to effectively educate the public about left-wing media bias by integrating cutting-edge news monitoring capabilities with a sophisticated marketing operation. MRC generated an average of 376.8 million impressions each week last year. This includes radio, television, social media, email, and websites.

CNSNews reports the stories the liberal media refuse to cover. Under the skillful editorial stewardship of long-time conservative writer and Pulitzer Prize nominee Terry Jeffrey, CNSNews has emerged as the conservative media’s lynchpin for original reporting and breaking news.

MRCTV is the multimedia division of MRC featuring original content and aggregated videos of the news, people, and events conservatives care about. The site features all of the MRC’s television appearances and serves as an online platform for conservatives to share and view videos on topics ranging from breaking news to political analysis and humor.

MRC Action is the grassroots arm of the Media Research Center. The team directly contacts hundreds of thousands of Americans each week, urging citizens with its MRC Action e-newsletter to take action in neutralizing the left-wing press. MRC Action mobilizes its members to counter left-wing media bias with petitions, email campaigns, and phone banks all demanding fair and accurate reporting in the media.

What Others Say About the MRC:

Prominent conservatives depend on MRC’s publications and analysis to showcase left-wing bias in the media.

Liberals hate Brent Bozell. And in this business, that’s a badge of honor. He documents their excess, their idiocy, and their bias.
Rush Limbaugh
The MRC has played a key role in our culture, not just documenting and exposing liberal bias, but helping to pave the way for the growth of an alternative media.
Sean Hannity
Brent Bozell and the Media Research Center have been huge assets to the conservative movement over the last 25+ years. The folks at the MRC fight the good fight every day, every week, every year, and I don’t know what we’d do without them.
Mark Levin
"We have to have that guardian that really does look at the objectivity of the media and what is going on so that we can tell the American people the truth... So that we can have that level playing field out there."
Allen West
MRC has been holding the media accountable for left-wing bias and selective reporting. They are an important resource for the country and are making a significant impact.
Senator Mike Lee
Before the emergence of talk-radio, before Fox News, before online center-right alternative media, there was Brent Bozell. He pioneered an entire cottage industry that effectively holds the national media accountable before the public. The exponential growth of alternative media owes a lot to Brent Bozell, as his relentlessness in exposing and documenting media bias is the foundation upon which they have succeeded.
