The Fight Against MAGA Media

Fighting Lies logo Rev1.jpg


It's time for Democratic activists to take on the propaganda of the

right-wing media that cripples our efforts to save democracy. 

Extensive evidence indicates local news is key to creating

a healthier media environment and its increasing scarcity

has had dire political consequences.









This initiative focuses on ways that the grassroots can support projects that complement local news by extending the reach of honest journalism. Doing so will create a media ecosystem that is less hospitable to disinformation.

  2. Reactive/Disruptive
