Format: Paperback
VEry good and timely book, showing how aonce-great political party has deteriorated and sunk to the lower depths, by embracing hate-mongers, bigots, reactionaries, and general crazies to become almost an anti-democratic cult. True conservatives such as Barry Goldwater, if they were alive, would be absolutely appalled at how their party has pandered to the basest instincts of many Americans--fear, intolerance, hate, fanaticism, and bigotry. A warning shot...

Format: Paperback
The country has been so bombarded for deacdes by the claim that the media is liberal, readers like the one from Syracuse believe it, ignoring the power, reach and influence of the Wall Street Journal; talk radio, especially Rush Limbaugh; and MSNBC and Fox. Furthermore, the campaign has shifted all media rightward. But even Republicans have admitted the claims of a liberal media are a shell game, and a brilliantly successful one at that. This book and David Brock's The Republican Noise Machine and Eric Alterman's What Liberal Media should be read by all citizens who want to maintain and strengthen American democracy.

This book is ludicrous. the republicans don't control the "mass media" the left does. Couric,Rather,Brokaw,Jennings,. Left,left,left,left. C'mon, if you're going to go after the right at least bring something better than the right controls the media. Its laughable.

This book was a very compelling look at the well-organized machine that is the right. I was impressed with how well-documented the book was, using the words of those on the right to make the case.
Those that criticize the book will have to refute an awful lot of quotes and facts by their conservative friends. With all the quotes, citations and endnotes, I don't know how one COULD refute the general claims of this book.
What was most frightening for me in this book was the push by the right to completely "wipe them [the left or the democrats] off the face of the planet." This quote by David Horowitz, political strategist for the right, is telling. As the book points out, for the Democrats, politics is a debate between two opposing camps or schools of thought. For the Republicans, it is a war for dominance. I am frightened by a group that does not welcome discourse, especially when that group is so powerful politically and economically. Squashing the political opponent seems very anti-American to me.
Read this book. Then vote.

This was an utterly fabulous book. My friend Marc, the Original Banana Republican, was especially impressed with the bit about gay marriage. I highly recommend this thoroughly investigated masterpiece.

Sheldon and John have done another great job. This time exposing the right wing extremist's media machine.
