Politics and the Press


Pew Center for the People and the Press

"A research group that studies attitudes toward the press, politics and public policy issues. We are best known for regular national surveys that measure public attentiveness to major news stories, and for our polling that charts trends in values and fundamental political and social attitudes" [from the site]


Operated by the St. Petersburg Times, this site aims to review claims made in the media and test them for accuracy. PolitiFact won the Pulitizer Prize for national reporting for coverage of the 2008  election.

Shorenstein Center on Press, Politics & Public Policy

A research center at Harvard University that studies the intersection of press, politics and public policy in theory and practice.
