The Business and Media Institute — Guarding the news of our Free Enterprise System

The engine of America’s freedom and prosperity (yes, they go hand-in-hand) is our system of free enterprise. It is under attack now more than ever in a steady march toward facism. No, I don’t think I’m being an extremist in stating that.  That march has become a rush and it is fueled to a great extent by the so-called main stream media.

Want to find a source of credible information about attacks on our system of free enterprise?  Here is a bit about the Business & Media Institute:

Before the Media Research Center (MRC) launched the Business & Media Institute (BMI) in 1992, there was no entity in America devoted solely to analyzing and exposing the anti-free enterprise culture of the media. With the BMI in operation, that void has been filled.

The mission of BMI is to audit the media’s coverage of the free enterprise system. It is our goal to bring balance to economic reporting and to promote fair portrayal of the business community in the media. Providing resources for journalists, such as connections to sources who can speak intelligently about the economy, is one way we pursue this end. BMI is the economics division of the Media Research Center, and it is the only organization in the world dedicated to the unique challenge of correcting misconceptions about free enterprise in the media.

BMI has produced numerous pieces of research, many of which received critical acclaim in the national media. BMI focuses on the culture of the free enterprise system. Analysts research and assess material concerning taxes, regulation, government spending, the environment, Social Security, and business.
