In order to make even the most mundane of everyday decisions it is necessary to have good information. The public depends on television, radio and print media to deliver reliable and accurate information. For the most part, reporters and editors do their jobs and the result is an informed public. In some instances, however, the information relayed to the public is neither reliable nor accurate. Far too often, inaccurate information is reported and repeated until it achieves a certain myth status. The goal of this site is to provide news consumers with a resource to allow them to debunk myths that take hold as a result of inaccurate or irresponsible media reports.

"The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie -- deliberate, contrived and dishonest -- but the myth -- persistent, persuasive and unrealistic." -- John F. Kennedy

Recently Updated: Economic Reporting

In order to make even the most mundane of everyday decisions it is necessary to have good information. The public depends on television, radio and print media to deliver reliable and accurate information. For the most part, reporters and editors do their jobs and the result is an informed public. In some instances, however, the information relayed to the public is neither reliable nor accurate. Far too often, inaccurate information is reported and repeated until it achieves a certain myth status. The goal of this site is to provide news consumers with a resource to allow them to debunk myths that take hold as a result of inaccurate or irresponsible media reports.

Truth Through Scrutiny

When inaccurate information is reported in the news media, especially when it is reported on the wire services and gets repeated worldwide, it is difficult to "take back" the initial report and correct the record. With the rise of new media such as talk radio and blogs, traditional media has come under increased scrutiny and some stories that in past generations might have been left to stand, have been exposed as misleading and/or false. Those instances, which are often relegated to small print at the back of the newspaper, will be compiled here.

Use the search box in the left sidebar to search for items related to specific issues. An overview of some of the major categories can be found by going directly to the List of Major Categories page. A list of some of the journalists and sources included in the Media Mythbusters wiki can be found by going directly to Journalists and Sources.
