Accuracy In Media is a non-profit, grassroots citizens watchdog of the news media that critiques botched and bungled news stories and sets the record straight on important issues that have received slanted coverage.
Cliff Kincaid is the Director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism. From 2003 – 2010 he was Editor of the “AIM Report.” A veteran journalist and media critic, he currently specializes in election coverage, the Fairness Doctrine, coverage of the U.N., and coverage of financial bailouts. AIM’s founder, Reed Irvine, hired Cliff as an intern and then a staffer in 1978, and Cliff has been associated with AIM in some capacity ever since.
Cliff also writes frequent columns and special reports for AIM. He wrote and narrated the AIM documentary, “Terror Television: The Rise of Al-Jazeera and the Hate America Media.” He also represents AIM at the annual shareholders’ meetings of several key media companies, including the New York Times and FOX News Channel.
As President of America’s Survival, Inc. (www.usasurvival.org), a separate group he founded, Cliff is an advocate on behalf of the families of victims of terrorism and has published reports and held conferences critical of the United Nations.
Prior to joining AIM, Cliff served on the staff of Human Events for several years and was an editorial writer and newsletter editor for former National Security Council staffer Oliver North at his Freedom Alliance educational foundation. He was a guest co-host on CNN’s Crossfire (filling in for Pat Buchanan) in the 1980s, where he confronted the then-Libyan Ambassador to the U.N. with evidence of Libyan involvement in international terrorism.
