Phoenix AZ, (June 6, 2004): Announcing PRESSCOURT.COM. PRESSCOURT is the people's voice in news coverage.

PRESSCOURT offers those who view, listen or read the news to report those who publish for having slanted, twisted or otherwise corrupted the news.

It does not matter if the slant is left, right or backwards. Slanting news stories at all is opinion and opinion has no place in news reporting.

Link is bad. Also, how will this differ than say Media Research Center or Accuracy in Media?

Nice idea but the problem is the mainstream media simply won't report on complaints filed against it in Presscourt. Just like it doesn't address issues of bias now.

No...I think not reading or watching is the best solution.

Folks in the conservative blogsphere are going to love this. They dissect the liberal media on a daily basis and have become quite good at it.

Give me their address and I'll get them a subscription to the St. Petersburg (FL - Pravda West)Times. It will save a lot of time as otherwise I'd have to send in everything but the classifieds!
Truly disgusting propoganda - day in and day out. I cancelled my subscription recently as I do not want to pay them money to publish their agenda.

The point would seem to me not so much to address the media, but the advertisers.

This is great - as a free press the only recourse IS the advertisers. Maybe this is a way to get some accountability back and make it a Free and Responsible Press!

"Link is bad" ?? huh?
Whew... interesting... how'd all those other people get in?

Nevermind... i'm tired..

http://www.presscourt.com

It will differ in that it is YOUR VOICE not the voice of editors and don't believe either of those sources AT ALL.

Oh yes they will....report on it...
one of them will get so mad they'll attack it and then.... its the future... but it needs to be used to make that happen... btw: when a complaint is filed the media outlet gets a letter... indicted in press court... it will get on their nerves... when convicted they get an actual court order... it will bug them horribly until someone in the pack gets mad enough and wham... backfire

NY Times is on the list...

What is on the list of docket cases is up to site members. If you have a complaint file it...

Yahoo is one of the most abused email services in the world. There are some 200 known abusive email sources banned from the site. You can get a free account from just about any site offering free email that has to do with animals and you'll get in. They are very low abuse rates.

That is the point but to get there the media has to be found guilty first. After that few advertisers are going to argue the point. The people will have spoken.

Here's the process for advertisers:

We call them 'Accomplices'

Once a case is found 'guilty' (saying that ever happens) it opens up to reporting of accomplices. From there the system gets a little interesting as it allows members to send complaint letters to the advertisers using their own address. There is more coming in future versions but it has to reach that point first.

I just went to the "about page" on presscourt.com. Do you really believe that Walter Cronkite was ojbective in his reporting/anchoring as is stated in the first paragraph?
