Every day, Media Matters documents conservative misinformation in the media — from right-wing radio to cable news, from major daily newspapers to online publications. Month after month, we shine the light of accountability on the media, which all too often pass along conservative spin, smears, and distortions as fact.
You might think it was difficult to narrow down the field of media figures that continually misled the American people in 2008. You’d be wrong. Media Matters dug deep through the more than 3,500 detailed research items we’ve released this year to select our annual “Misinformer of the Year” — and it wasn’t even close.
This year’s “winner” left no smear of a progressive leader or issue unspoken, turning both of his cable television programs and his nationally syndicated radio show into cesspools of conservative misinformation.
