Media Research Center is America's Premiere Media Watchdog.

MRC has played a crucial role in countering left-wing bias in news media and popular culture, revealing the left’s agenda to undermine traditional values, restrict individual liberty, and stifle private enterprise. Alongside this effort, MRC champions free speech by taking on Big Tech companies that aim to suppress conservative voices.

To support its mission, the MRC utilizes two unique databases. First, the TV news archive, which features more than 925,000 hours of video dating back to 1987, allows the MRC to demonstrate instances of media bias through both present-day and historical footage. Second, the CensorTrack database comprises over 6,000 recorded cases of online censorship of conservatives, providing the MRC with compelling evidence to support its fight against Big Tech.

Through its advanced news monitoring technology and sophisticated marketing strategy, the MRC educates the public on the issue of left-wing media bias, generating an average of 515.2 million weekly impressions across various platforms, including radio, television, social media, email, and websites.

The Media Research Center is a research and education organization operating under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax-deductible to the maximum extent of the law. The MRC does not receive government grants or contracts or have an endowment. Instead, we raise our funds each year from individuals, foundations, and corporations.
