Alterman traces the growth of the conservative media as the bandwagon started in the Clinton years, then accelerated during the Y2000 election. While usually GOP-centric, the anti-liberal bias also springs from the corporate media's cheerleading of the stock market and any issue involving free trade. Another important factor is the downward slide to news as entertainment, leading to broadcasters featuring showmen such as Chris Matthews instead of experienced journalists.
Packed with hard facts and examples, WHAT LIBERAL MEDIA? is the perfect gift for Dittoheads and Hannityites!
