With the proliferation of media sources, legitimate and otherwise, comes the requirement for greater public knowledge and introspection into the news and its sources. The need for a Fair Media Council should be happening across our country. We are so very fortunate to have such a resource and forum on Long Island and in the New York metropolitan area.

More than ever before, we need media watchdogs to keep a check on reporters and news content but to praise them as well. Our First Amendment is often attacked by politicians and pundits, and the Fair Media Council is one of its protectors and supporters. FMC also serves as an educator, making media literacy a priority in a world invaded by false news and opinion
