As Politico's Michael Calderone reported today:

Journalist and author Will Bunch is joining Media Matters as a senior fellow, and will be contributing to the progressive media watchdog's blog, "County Fair."

"After three decades as a highly respected journalist, Will Bunch brings to Media Matters a knowledge of media and politics that is unmatched," Media Matters president Eric Burns said in a release. "I am delighted that he will be joining us in the fight for a more honest, accurate media."

Bunch, in a release, said he'll be working with Media Matters "in support of my new book, 'The Backlash,' which looks at how the conservative media is driving the Tea Party movement."

"I'm also excited Media Matters is offering me a wider platform to push for better journalism, which in turn will lead to better democracy," Bunch said.

You can follow Bunch on Twitter here and don't forget to keep an eye out for his posts right here on Media Matters' County Fair blog as well as his continuing work at the Philly Daily News and the News' Attytood blog.
