Taking a cue from Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, the nonprofit Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) is interested in promoting media literacy and citizen journalism "of, by and for the people." ...
To achieve this goal, they publish a quarterly investigative journal, their "Spin of the Day", and the very useful PR Watch website. On the site, they investigate and craft critical appraisals of various public relations media. Recently, they have looked at the "green" claims made by print advertisements for various automobiles and media claims about other products. Visitors can browse through the latest material added to the site here, and they will also want to look at their investigative series as well. One particularly noteworthy set of pieces is titled "The Politics and PR of Cervical Cancer", authored by the associate director of the CMD, Judith Siers-Poisson. Overall, the site is a good resource for journalists and for people who are just plain curious about the world of journalism and investigative reporting. [KMG]
