News Busters is a project of the Media Research Center (MRC). Media Research Center is America’s leading media watchdog when it comes to recording, exposing, and overcoming the bias of liberal media. MRC launched News Busters blog site in August of 2005.

News Busters is a project of the news analysis division of the Media Research Center, led from its establishment in October 1, 1987 by Brent Baker, the MRC's Steven P.J. Wood Senior Fellow and Vice President for Research and Publications. The news analysis division produces daily, weekly and special reports that document and counter liberal bias from television network news shows and major print publications. Rich Noyes is the Director of Research while Tim Graham serves as the Executive Editor.

The purpose of the launching of the News Busters blog is to provide the people with immediate exposure of the bias, occasional idiocy, inaccuracy, and unfairness of the national media. The blog is well-known to a lot of national talk-radio stars who often read their articles, giving praise to the latest nugget coming from “Our Buddies at News Busters”. The Washington Post even considers the blog as a spunky one, as it is run by the best-known and best-funded reactionary watchdog.

News Busters boasts a state-of-the-art 24-hour recording operation as well as a big archive of cable and broadcast news recordings which date back to the year 1987. The blog site still plays a leading role when it comes to short term outrages to long term trends in the fight against liberal media bias. The other projects of the MRC include CNS News, Business & Media Institute, MRCTV, and Culture and Media Institute.
