Blaming America: Political Correctness and Anti-Military Bias in National Security Reporting

At the Center for Security Policy’s recent Mightier Pen Award in New York City, the first National Security and New Media Conference addressed several problems in mainstream media reporting on national security topics, including: the sheer neglect of national security journalism; lack of education on national security and military topics in journalism training; inaccurate reporting on military issues and anti-western bias; reduced budgets that have eliminated foreign and Washington correspondents; and the acceptance of foreign propaganda as news.

The first panel, “Blaming America: Political Correctness and Anti-Military Bias in National Security Reporting,” featured veteran Washington Times Geopolitics Editor Bill Gertz, the Washington Examiner‘s Sara Carter, and David Feith of the Wall Street Journal‘s editorial page. The focus was on the effect of the mainstream media’s narrative when it comes to putting America’s national security in context, it’s common biases, and how that narrative plays out, story after story.
