Tell the New York Times and Washington Post: 'Quit Being a Megaphone for the Corporate Elite'
In their coverage of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, the New York Times and Washington Post are largely serving as mouthpieces for corporate and establishment interests.
Click below to sign this petition, which will be presented to the top editors of those two influential newspapers.
To the editors of the New York Times and the Washington Post:
Quit being a megaphone for the corporate elite. As the media watch group FAIR has documented, your newspaper continues to skew coverage of the Democratic presidential race in ways that run counter to fairness and accuracy. While there are two contesting wings in the Democratic Party -- the progressive and corporate wings -- the Times and the Post routinely give voice to the claims of just one side. Articles are often, in effect, editorials (in support of corporate Democrats) masquerading as news stories.
