A dozen House Republicans are forming a caucus to fight liberal media bias.
Headed by Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the Media Fairness Caucus will point out unfair stories, meet with members of the media, and write op-eds and letters to the editor to highlight media bias.
For the past two years, Smith has conducted his own campaign against unfair coverage in weekly one-minute speeches on the House floor. The caucus is intended to broaden and fortify the effort.
In a Newsmax interview, Smith said media bias is the “greatest threat to our democracy today.”
It is a bigger threat to the nation than a terrorist attack or a depression “because, if the American people can’t get good information, can’t get the facts, and can’t make good decisions, then we simply don’t have a viable democracy,” Smith says. “Right now I think they are not getting the facts and therefore it’s hard to make good decisions, and therefore our democracy is threatened.”
