Its positions on issues would also usually be classified as conservative: AIM editorialized in support of Nicaraguan Contra leaders such as José Francisco Cardenal. It also supported the Committee for a Free Afghanistan, a US group that backed Islamic fundamentalist Afghans who fought the Soviet invasion. Also supported are Augusto Pinochet, who was called a savior of Chile, and the group often quotes from The Epoch Times, a group that publishes information on Chinese human rights abuses.

History

In the early days, AIM was run primarily by Irvine and then-executive secretary Abraham Kalish. Kalish and Irvine would send letters to the editors of many newspapers promoting their organization. If a letter was rejected, AIM would buy space in that paper and print the letter. Beginning in 1975, AIM began purchasing stock in major media companies, which allowed Irvine to attend their annual meetings and make AIM's views known. He has been described as combative and occasionally rude during those encounters. Irvine now has an annual private meeting with the publisher of The New York Times, which critics say serves primarily to isolate other shareholders from Irvine's campaigning. Times vice-chair Sydney Gruson claims "I never find any merit in AIM's allegations." Year 1975 (MCMLXXV) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Publications

AIM publishes a twice-monthly newsletter called the AIM Report, originally edited by Reed Irvine. These newsletters often encourage subscribers to write to people or organizations urging them to change their policies. This has become daily over the Internet and through e-mail with current AIM Editor Cliff Kincaid and AIM executive secretary and media analyst Roger Aronoff since 2000. Accuracy In Media (AIM) is an American organization which monitors the news media in the United States. ... 2000 (MM) was a leap year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Controversies

At CBS's meetings, Irvine frequently denounced Walter Cronkite as a Soviet dupe. At a 1986 meeting, Irvine requested that Cronkite be removed from the CBS board of directors for allegedly supporting unilateral disarmament.[3] CBS Broadcasting, Inc. ... Walter Leland Cronkite, Jr. ... Soviet redirects here. ...


AIM also famously denounced journalist Helen Marmor, who in 1983 produced a documentary for NBC concerning the Russian Orthodox Church.[4] AIM contended that "it ignored the repressive religious policies of the Soviet state."

The group denounced New York Times reporter Raymond Bonner for his reporting in January 1982 of the El Mozote massacre in El Salvador. AIM devoted an entire edition of its AIM Report to Bonner, reporting that "Mr. Bonner had been worth a division to the communists in Central America."[5] The issue included some insinuations about Bonner's political sympathies, noting that he had once worked for Ralph Nader. Raymond Bonner is an American investigative reporter for The New York Times. ... Year 1982 (MCMLXXXII) was a common year starting on Friday (link displays the 1982 Gregorian calendar). ...

In 1998, at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Reed Irvine claimed there was a conspiracy within the Republican Party to "suppress investigations of Clinton administration scandals."[2] He noted, "Conspiracy is a word that has been given a very bad connotation -- it's become synonymous with 'kooky,'" he told a Post reporter.[2] "But really it has a very good connotation." In other words, he elaborated, some conspiracy theories are valid. But not Hillary Clinton's notion of a vast right-wing conspiracy. "She's kooky," he said."[2] CPAC 2006 Conservative Political Action Conference is an annual political conference attended by some 5000+ conservatives, activists, and elected officials from across the United States. ... The Republican Party is one of two major contemporary political parties in the United States of America, along with the Democratic Party. ...


AIM has been critical of the United Nations and its coverage by the media. In February 2005, AIM revealed that United Nations correspondents, including a correspondent for The Nation named Ian Williams, had accepted money from the UN while covering it for their publications. AIM also revealed that the United Nations Correspondents Association may have violated immigration laws by employing the wife of Williams. Williams and The Nation denied wrongdoing. [1][2] The charges were also reported by FrontPage Magazine. The allegations concerning Williams receiving UN cash was picked up by Brit Hume and the Fox News Channel. [3] The foundation of the U.N.

In November 2005, AIM columnist Cliff Kincaid criticised Fox News for broadcasting a program "The Heat is On," which endorsed the view that global warming represents a serious problem (although the program was broadcast with a disclaimer). Kincaid stated that this "scandal" amounted to a "hostile takeover of Fox News" [4].

In a December 13, 2005 column, Kincaid called for a "Quit Gay Sex" campaign to rival "Quit Smoking Campaigns" launched by certain media outlets in the United States. He contended that homosexual sex is widespread and homosexual men "simply cannot stop having homosexual sex" and that it was spreading HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.[6]


Criticism

Critics say AIM's attacks on the media seem to have little to do with actual misrepresentation or inaccuracies in media accounts. They assert that Irvine and AIM is quick to attack groups that do not fit in the group's ideological niche. Donald Graham, the publisher of The Washington Post, alleges that Irvine tends to "throw around accusations about people being communists."[citation needed] Donald E. Graham Donald E. Graham is chief executive officer and chairman of the board of The Washington Post Company. ... The Washington Post is the largest newspaper in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States. ... Communism is an ideology that seeks to establish a classless, stateless social organization based on common ownership of the means of production. ...


AIM has also been vigorously defensive of former Senator Joseph McCarthy, referring to his critics as "liars" and "communists," and defending his legacy, claiming that he never once fingered an innocent person in his accusations during the red scare he helped to fan. [5] Joseph Raymond McCarthy (November 14, 1908 – May 2, 1957) was a Republican U.S. Senator from the state of Wisconsin between 1947 and 1957. ... Some factual claims in this article need to be verified. ...


Funding

Irvine claims that 75 percent of AIM's funding comes from contributors donating US$100 or less. Only three donors of the remainder are given by name: the Allied Educational Foundation, Shelby Cullom Davis, and billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife. Scaife gave $2 million to Accuracy in Media since 1977 -1997.[7] Richard Mellon Scaife (born July 3, 1932, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), a U.S. billionaire and owner–publisher of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. ...


Other groups that have supported AIM include Mobil Oil and Union Carbide. In 1985, AIM received a $20,000 grant from the Adolph Coors Foundation, and $7,000 from the Texaco Philanthropic Foundation. In 1986, it received $5,000 from Texaco.[8] Exxon Mobil Corporation or ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM), headquartered in Irving, Texas, is an oil producer and distributor formed on November 30, 1999, by the merger of Exxon and Mobil. ... This article or section is incomplete and may require expansion and/or cleanup. ...

Year 1986 (MCMLXXXVI) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link displays 1986 Gregorian calendar). ... Texaco is the name of an American oil company that was merged into Chevron Corporation in 2001. ...


In December 2004, the American Institute of Philanthropy gave AIM a grade of "C+" for not-for-profit effectiveness. It noted that it would have awarded a grade of "A", but reduced the grade because AIM retains 4.1 years' worth of operating expenses in assets. It feels that AIM is in a poor position to ask donors for more funding when it is already cash-rich. The American Institute of Philanthropy (AIP) was created by Daniel Borochoff in 1993 to address the continuing need for thoughtful information regarding the financial efficiency, accountability, governance and fundraising practices of charities. ...


AIM's work

Vincent Foster conspiracy claims

Accuracy in Media has received a substantial amount of funding from Scaife who paid Christopher W. Ruddy to investigate allegations that President William Clinton was connected to the suicide of Vincent Foster.[9] AIM claims that "Foster was murdered",[10] which is contrary to three independent reports including one by Kenneth Starr[11]. AIM faults the media for not picking up on the conspiracy.[12] The organization has even gone to court for documents and recordings linked to the case. Christopher Ruddy is an American journalist. ... Order: 42nd President Term of Office: January 20, 1993–January 20, 2001 Preceded by: George H. W. Bush Succeeded by: George W. Bush Date of birth: August 19, 1946 Place of birth: Hope, Arkansas Date of death: Place of death: First Lady: Hillary Rodham Clinton Political party: Democratic Vice... Vincent Walker Foster, Jr. ... Kenneth Winston Starr Kenneth Winston Starr (born July 21, 1946) is an American lawyer and former judge who was appointed to the Office of the Independent Counsel to investigate the death of the deputy White House counsel Vince Foster and the Whitewater land transactions by President Bill Clinton. ...


AIM credits much of its reporting on the Foster case to Ruddy.[13] Yet, his work has been called a "hoax" and "discredited" by conservatives like Ann Coulter,[14] it was also disputed by the American Spectator, which caused Scaife to ending his funding of the Arkansas Project with the publisher.[15] As CNN explained on February 28, 1997, "The [Starr] report refutes claims by conservative political organizations that Foster was the victim of a murder plot and coverup," but ""despite those findings, right-wing political groups have continued to allege that there was more to the death and that the president and first lady tried to cover it up."[16] Ann Hart Coulter (born December 8, 1961)[1] is an American best-selling author, columnist and political commentator. ... The American Spectator is a conservative-leaning American monthly magazine covering news and politics, edited by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. ... The Arkansas Project is the general name of a series of investigations (mostly funded by billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife) that were designed to damage and end the presidency of Bill Clinton. ...


AIM speaker Hugh Turley (co author of Failure of the Public Trust) currently operates a Foster conspiracy website at FBICOVER-UP.com.[17][18] While Ruddy operates a conservative news website, NewsMax, that still claims there is a conspiracy and faults the media.[19] NewsMax. ...


Fox News

On October 20, 2006, Accuracy in Media released a list of 27 questions to pose at the Fox News Executive meeting that will be attended by AIM editor Cliff Kincaid.[20][21] Fox News Channels slogan is We Report, You Decide The Fox News Channel is a U.S. cable and satellite news channel. ...


Of these 27 questions, 8 dwell on Rupert Murdoch's relationship with the Clintons and how that may have affected Fox News coverage.[20] Moreover, AIMS wrote "News Corporation hired the Glover Park Group, a public relations firm run by friends of Bill and Hillary Clinton, to block changes in the TV ratings system," and asks, "Was this part of News Corporation's move to the left?"[20] Keith Rupert Murdoch AC, KCSG (born 11 March 1931) is an Australian born United States citizen who is a global media executive and is the controlling shareholder, chairman and managing director of News Corporation, based in New York. ...


In May 2007, Accuracy in Media raised questions about a conflict of interest in Fox News' co-sponsorship of the May 15 Republican Presidential Candidates debate,[22] pointing out that News Corporation, the parent company of Fox News, is as a client of presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani.[23] The 2008 Republican Presidential Debates are political debates before the 2008 Republican Primaries. ... 1211 Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue), where News Corporation is based News Corporation (abbreviated to News Corp) (NYSE: NWS, NYSE: NWSa, ASX: NWS, LSE: NCRA) is one of the worlds largest media conglomerates. ...
