Media watchdog group cites NCR's Honduras coverage

 |  NCR Today

Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (F.A.I.R.), the Washington-based media watchdog group has written a report generally critical of U.S. media coverage of the Honduras coup some weeks back. However in the report, FAIR singled out NCR's coverage as an exception. Here is what FAIR said:

The U.S. corporate media have carefully averted their eyes from such history as that of General Alvarez—as from the role of School of the Americas graduates in the current coup. It was thanks to the School of the Americas Watch and the National Catholic Reporter (6/29/09), not the corporate media, that the public learned of ongoing U.S. training of the Honduran military, despite the Obama administration’s claim to have cut military ties. When history repeats itself, don’t look for accurate coverage from those who got it wrong the first time around.
