American Majority Formally Launches Watchdog Group as Independent Organization
Media Trackers Made Headlines Exposing Corruption in WI Recall Election, OH Union Scams, Government Waste
Purcellville, VA…September 18, 2012— After more than a year of making headlines around the country as a media and government watchdog group exposing bias and corruption, American Majority has announced that Media Trackers will become its own, independent national organization. Since its inception, Media Trackers has been a program of American Majority, the nation’s leading conservative grassroots training organization.
Media Trackers made headlines by uncovering clear instances of bias in the judiciary and union corruption during the recent Wisconsin recall. Recently, the group also exposed supposed “taxpayer” organizations in Ohio to be nothing more than union-funded front groups to deceive the public during critical public policy debates.
“When my brother Drew conceptualized the idea of Media Trackers, we hoped it would be the conservative answer to Media Matters, but it has developed into much more than a media watchdog group,” states Ned Ryun, Founder and President of American Majority. “The aggressive model Drew and Media Trackers has developed is producing hundreds of investigations, stories and red flags that include government corruption, uncovering waste and exposing the political slight-of-hand that is meant to mislead the public.”
In May, Media Trackers opened additional offices in Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and Montana. Over the last year, Media Trackers staff of researchers and writers have exposed public corruption as well as media bias on a non-partisan basis, hitting independent groups, Democrats, and Republicans who violate the public trust.
“American Majority has been proud to be the incubator of this effort. We are excited in anticipation of the work Media Trackers will do now as an independent, sustainable entity,” continued Ryun. “It is our hope that there will be dozens more offices in the near future.”
“This is an exciting opportunity to take a proven concept and expand it to its full potential,” states Drew Ryun, President and Founder of the newly independent Media Trackers. “Our staff is producing results every day in the hope of giving public officials and the media pause before thinking they can continue to get away with bias, fraud, waste and abuse.”
