Media ombudsmen: Does anyone have a list of contacts? [View all]

In less than a week since the Inauguration, we've read nonsense stories about President Biden's watch and his Peloton. These are nothing stories, but by placing them in the media, they become something.

The MSM again is being played by the Rs in the one and only area that they excel in: destroying/smearing people. I'm far more concerned about the more serious issues, but the MSM (and social media, for that matter) need to be confronted.

I'm hoping that someone on DU has a list of ombudsmen at various media outlines (TV, internet, print, radio) as to who complain to about unfair/slanted/untrue reporting etc. Usually, these are impartial people who will investigate something and make changes if warranted.

One of things we can do at DU is call/write to these people en masse. I'm convinced that it does make a difference. I'm so very proud of the folks (young, middle-aged, and older) who were able to peacefully translate anger about something into a mass resistance via TikTok, Twitter, etc these last 4 years.

If the media (or its advertisers) know that something is going to cost them money or reputation, most of them will think twice. AFAIK, this is the best way to counter the idiotic and/or dangerous stories we are already beginning to see surface.

If there is a list of media contacts to whom to complain, that would be great!
