What Liberal Media? : Bernard Goldberg, Rush Limbaugh, and Bill O'Reilly have had their day on bestseller lists exposing the alleged buffoonery and incompetence of the so-called liberal media. Until now, not a single journalist has undertaken an investigation, let alone a refutation, of the myth that the mainstream media slants the news to the left, thereby duping the American public. In What Liberal Media? Eric Alterman takes these accusations seriously and exposes the fallacy of the vast left-wing conspiracy that never was. He says the very news structure, much more than the personal ideologies of prominent news figures, defines the current state of the media. Armed with data that debunks many of the more inflammatory accusations made against the media and expose just who controls the purse strings of the press, What Liberal Media? is an audiobook for all those outraged, confused, or just plain disgusted at the current critical stalemate about whom the media serves and why it exists.
