How the Media Defined "Terrorism" this Week

Journalists pushed for a certain story while covering the Boston bombing.

Each week, Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) takes on the media's biggest blunders. This week on FAIR TV, they take a look at how the media defined "terrorism" as they covered the Boston bombing. They also take on how both the Left and Right pundits on PBS News Hour agreed that Obama should be praised for cutting Social Security — leaving little room for debate.

Watch their new episode:

Peter Hart is the Media Activism Director for Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR).
