Media Matters Alters Focus

Beyond Fox News.

Liberal media site Media Matters is expanding its scope beyond Fox News.

According to Politico, the new Media Matters will focus on exposing fake news and conspiracy theories. Leading this charge is Angelo Carusone, who has been promoted from executive vice president to president.

“There was a period of time which we were, rightfully so, described as the ‘Fox antagonist’s,” Carusone told Politico. “Now, our mission is to be principally focused on the value of journalism.”
