Media Alert
"Media Lens is a UK-based media-watch project, which offers authoritative criticism of mainstream media bias and censorship, as well as providing in-depth analysis, quotes, media contact details and other resources." In doing so it provides an incisive and useful insight into the way "news" is constructed, through a series of "Media Alerts", that you can sign-up to receive by e-mail. The latest Alert is BURYING THE LANCET which examines the press reaction to a study that appeared in the Lancet in November 2004, estimating the number of civilian deaths in Iraq at nearly 100,000.
