This week, CiF Watch celebrated its 4th anniversary.
Though In recent years we have greatly increased our presence in the social media, launched a sister site, BBC Watch, improved our efficacy by establishing an affiliation with CAMERA, and started leveraging our experience to gain corrections to false claims made by the Guardian (and other UK sites), our primary mission remains the same.
In our inaugural post on Aug. 24, 2009 we announced our intention to monitor and combat antisemitism at the Guardian, and “to regularly post articles exposing the bigoted and one-sided nature of [their] obsessive focus on Israel and, by extension, the Jewish people.” We also asked followers of our blog to assist us in our mission, a partnership with our many loyal readers which is still central to effectively carrying out our vital work.
So, please continue reaching out to us – by following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook, or the ‘old fashioned’ way, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org – when you come across misleading, biased, or bigoted reports or commentaries at the Guardian or ‘Comment is Free’.
On the occasion of our anniversary, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the work we do, and how we can more effectively carry out our mission, and continue ‘afflicting the comfortable‘ by speaking truth to Guardian power.
