4. No. That's a UK website for starters

But also, what I'm looking for is the following, using CNN as an example: if CNN runs a story that is slanted or biased, is there a person in CNN to whom we can complain to see about changing the story? If enough people call or write that person, usually that particular media and reporter will generally be more careful to write/produce a less biased piece. In some industries, this kind of person is referred to as an ombudsman.

It's really interesting that the US doesn't seem to have this kind of organization, yet several countries do. I wonder if that says a lot about the US media right there. Perhaps I'm not searching properly, but there doesn't appear to be something like what those other countries have. There is Media Matters, which is the closest thing I could find for the US: https://www.mediamatters.org/

Appreciate that you looked, though! Thank you.
