Description - What Liberal Media? by Eric Alterman
"Bold, counterintuitive, and cathartic...Alterman is ready for a bar fight, and he comes out swinging. "New York Times Book Review. Widely acclaimed and hotly contested, veteran journalist Eric Alterman's ambitious investigation into the true nature of the US news media touched a nerve and sparked debate across the country. As the question of whose interests the media protects-and how-continues to raise hackles, Alterman's sharp, utterly convincing assessment cuts through the cloud of inflammatory rhetoric, settling the question of liberal bias in the news once and for all. Eye-opening, witty, and thoroughly and solidly researched, What Liberal Media? is required reading for media watchers, and anyone concerned about the potentially dangerous consequences for the future of democracy in America.
