Accuracy in Media


“What Liberals Say” was developed by Accuracy in Media as a unique and comprehensive resource for statements made by liberals. The objective is to showcase hundreds — and eventually thousands — of statements by high-profile liberals on controversial subjects like gun control, multiculturalism and global warming.

On the ideological battleground, liberals often attempt to define conservatives by distorting what conservatives have said. Repeated distortions in the mainstream press leave the public with an inaccurate perception of the original idea.

However, when liberals say things that are embarrassing, foolish or just plain wrong, the mainstream press often turns a deaf ear. A quotation may receive some attention, but it is frequently hidden or downplayed.

“What Liberals Say” is dedicated to defining liberals not by the accusations or distortions of conservatives, but rather by what liberals themselves have actually said. These quotations paint a picture of liberals and liberalism untainted by mainstream media spin.

Considerable time and effort have been devoted to ensuring that these quotations and their references are accurate. However, not all quote sources are impeccable, so it may be possible on occasion to find flawed information on this website.
