CNSNews was launched on June 16, 1998, as a news source for individuals, news organizations and broadcasters who put a higher premium on balance than spin and seek news that’s ignored or under-reported as a result of media bias by omission.
Study after study by the Media Research Center, the parent organization of CNSNews, clearly demonstrates a liberal bias in many news outlets – bias by commission and bias by omission – that results in a frequent double-standard in editorial decisions on what constitutes "news."
In response to these shortcomings, MRC Chairman L. Brent Bozell III founded CNSNews in an effort to provide an alternative news source that would cover stories that are subject to the bias of omission and report on other news subject to bias by commission. In order to address the lack of conservative opinions in major news outlets across the country, CNSNews gives voice to some of the top conservative minds in the country in its Commentary section.
CNSNews endeavors to fairly present all legitimate sides of a story and debunk popular, albeit incorrect, myths about cultural and policy issues.
CNSNews has a full staff of credentialed journalists at its world headquarters in Reston, Virginia. In addition to news, CNSNews is proud to present commentary and analysis by some of the brightest minds and sharpest wits in the nation, including cartoonists.
CNSNews is a division of the Media Research Center, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Like National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting System, CNSNews is able to provide its services and information to the public at no cost, thanks to the generous support of our thousands of donors and their tax-deductible contributions. However, unlike NPR or PBS, CNSNews does not accept any federal tax money for its operations.
