WASHINGTON, March 19, 2008—Accuracy in Media announced today that it has
launched a new website called “What Liberals Say.” The new site, accessible at www.aim.org/wls, will showcase hundreds – and
eventually thousands – of statements by high-profile liberals on controversial
subjects. As a leading directory of
liberal commentary, it will be a comprehensive resource for scholars,
researchers and students.
Liberals Say fulfills the need for another reliable clearinghouse of
information,” says AIM chairman Don Irvine.
“When liberals distort what conservatives say, their allies in the
mainstream press provide the kind of repetition necessary to cement those
distortions in the public mind. However,
when liberals say things that are embarrassing, foolish, or just plain wrong,
their comments may initially receive some attention, but quickly lose momentum
when the mainstream press turns a deaf ear.”
someone who wants to find out what high-profile liberals like Hillary Clinton,
Barack Obama, or Nancy Pelosi have said about issues ranging from media bias to
terrorism to the environment and animal rights, AIM invites you to access the
website at www.aim.org/wls. Click on the List of Liberals or the Quote
Topics, and take it from there. You can
even search by source or topic.

organization whose mission is to promote fairness, balance, and accuracy in
