How accurate is "Accuracy in Media"? NOT!

Reported by Chrish - March 2, 2006

We all make mistakes. Some of us own up to them and correct them. But when your very name claims "Accuracy in Media - for fairness, balance, and accuracy in media" it seems fair that you be held to higher standard for, well, accuracy in media.

Piqued by the notion that FOX News is being called "leftward drifting" by ANYone I went to AIM's website to see what the heck they were talking about.

Fox News Hires Another Liberal
By Cliff Kincaid | March 2, 2006

We have been told that we won a dubious award from an anchor for MSNBC for noting the leftward drift of Fox News. He seemed incredulous that anyone could accuse Fox of being anything but extreme right-wing. We've got news for you�the drift continues.

Fox News Channel (FNC) recently hired Kimberly Guilfoyle, a noted supporter of the homosexual rights movement, as the host of a new show called The Lineup. Guilfoyle joined her husband at the 15th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, June 5, 2004. GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance for Defamation, specializes in promoting homosexuality in the media. Her husband is the San Francisco Mayor, Gavin Newsom, who led the fight for homosexual marriage.

Unfamiliar with GLAFD, I did two second's research to confirm that the organization represents "Gay and Lesbian Alliance AGAINST Defamation."

Quite the Freudian slip, and quite sloppy for people calling themselves "Accuracy in Media."

As for Ms. Guilfoyle, she was hired to discuss the law. Judge Andrew Napolitano is conservative - does that detract from (or in Kincaid's view, add to) his credibility? If we're talking marriage, I wonder if Kincaid believes that Mary Matalin's husband's politics should dilute her commentaries on FOX? In addition to being inaccurate, it appears Mr. Kincaid may be a hypocrite too.
