About Accuracy in Media

Founded in 1969 by economist Reed Irvine, Accuracy in Media is a nonprofit, grassroots organization that seeks to monitor media bias in television news, radio shows, newspapers and print magazines.  The organization publishes the AIM Report, a bimonthly newsletter for its members, broadcasts a "Media Monitor" podcast, syndicates a newspaper column and runs a national speakers bureau.  With fewer than 10 full-time staff members, AIM is a small organization with a wide reach.

AIM interns work closely with staff members, writing and editing articles for the AIM website and Campus Report.  Interns in public relations organize and publicize events, monitor press coverage, write and send press releases and contact student groups.  Marketing interns help manage print and internet advertising campaigns promoting AIM publications. AIM interns do not get coffee; instead they are treated (and challenged) as any other member of the staff would be.
