The Best of Media Matters 2012

Ah, 2012. We remember it….vaguely. Actually, it turned out to be another year in which not only The New York Times continued to be fascinated with what's happening in our territory. Many magazines, national radio networks, webzines, and other newspapers reported on us, too.
