Media Materials for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, gun research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting gun misinformation in the U.S. media.


Launched in September 2011, Media Materials for America put in place, the means to systematically monitor a cross section of print, broadcast, cable, radio, and Internet media outlets for gun misinformation — news or commentary that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that forwards the gun agenda — every day, in real time.


Using the website mediamaterials.wordpress.com as the principal vehicle for disseminating research and information, Media Materials posts rapid-response items as well as longer research and analytic reports documenting gun misinformation throughout the media. Additionally, Media Materials works daily to notify activists, journalists, pundits, and the general public about instances of misinformation, providing them with the resources to rebut false claims and to take direct action against offending media institutions.
