Description - The Persecution of Sarah Palin by Matthew Continetti

'These truthful accounts of media bias shed light on what's wrong with the information flow today.' - SARAH PALIN

Sarah Palin spent more than a decade making her town and her state better-she slashed government spending and corruption and encouraged economic growth. In 2008, she took to the national stage and became the hottest rising star the county had seen in years.

Palin was a conservative with traditional values-work, family, and religion-and Washington Democrats and their allies in the so-called mainstream media decided she had to be destroyed. These elite liberals attacked everything from Palin's clothing to her parenting style to her church. They spread one malicious and untrue rumor after another.

The media also treated Palin with such insulting condescension that it frequently lapsed into mockery. Palin was routinely ridiculed and vilified-and so was her family.

Despite the media's disdain, Palin persevered, and remains one of the most important figures in the Republican Party. Because she speaks for Main Street America on issues from energy to health care, her star will only continue to rise.

'Matthew Continetti has written a tough, revealing look at how the bias or habits of liberals in the media led them to assault a political figure who shared neither their values nor background. Whether you like Sarah Palin or not, this well-researched and meticulous volume strips the bark off influential players in journalism.'
-Karl Rove, former deputy chief of staff to President George W. Bush

'A compelling account of journalistic malpractice on a grand scale. Those called out in this book should not be allowed to forget what they did.'
-Brit Hume, FOX News

'What set off the media feeding frenzy over Sarah Palin's place on the 2008 Republican presidential ticket? Was there something wrong with Palin? Or something wrong with the media? In the Persecution of Sarah Palin, Matthew Continetti finds the answer-and exposes the media's worst excesses.'
-Byron York, The Washington Examiner
