5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 13 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What Liberal Media?: The Truth About Bias and the News (Hardcover)
This book is full of hard core facts and a huge amount of supporting evidence to support the author's claim that a reporter or newscater is only as liberal or conservative as the boss who pays his salary. Some of the interesting facts that this author talks about is how many conservative groups pay huge speaking fees to supposedly liberal newscasters and reporters in an effort to buy whatever views they want or do not want. Information on how some groups buy huge numbers of conservative books in order to falsey get these books onto bestseller lists. Conservatives hate this book and I can see why. The book is very well documented and well researched.

This review is from: What Liberal Media?: The Truth About Bias and the News (Hardcover)
Constructing a cohesive, logical argument to refute the often-repeated claim that the media has a liberal bias requires careful planning and airtight evidence. Yet author Eric Alterman makes a strong case that, if anything, the media is dominated by conservatives who promote the findings of well-funded partisan think tanks, help book publishers who produce poorly researched ideological books, support incendiary TV and radio pundits, and abet editorialists who push the conservative line. Their goal, Alterman alleges, is to quash intelligent political debate and reduce complex arguments to simplistic black and white alternatives - all in support of a right-leaning political agenda. The book is thoroughly researched and documented, if sometimes so absorbed in its own point of view and so esoteric that only the most dedicated reader will follow it. We recommend this book to everyone interested in fostering more balanced political discussion.
