Editorial Reviews

Review

“Conservatives are right. The leftwing “news” media did try to steal the 2012 elections. Bozell and Graham provide the indisputable evidence.” (Rush Limbaugh)

“Every conservative needs to understand how the Left is using the so-called ‘news’ media to manipulate public opinion -- and elect presidents. This book provides the irrefutable evidence” (Mark Levin)

Journalism is dead. Censorship and character assassination are very much alive. “Collusion” proves it, with frightening evidence. (Sean Hannity)

He is also the author of Whitewash: What the Media Won't Tell You About Hillary Clinton, but Conservatives Will (also with Tim Graham) and Weapons of Mass Distortion: The Coming Meltdown of the Liberal Media.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For conservatives, this book is a well-known but depressing story. Were it not for the media and its foul, rampant bias our nation would be free. Instead, it becomes more statist each and every year. Some of the frequent offenders here--Chris Matthews, Jonathan Alter, and Howard Fineman--are infamous in conservative circles and we shake our head at the way in which these devout leftists can fool anyone into thinking they're "journalists." They're no such thing. Our media members are leftist activists disguised as reporters. They're coat and tie radicals and together with our universities form a large Democrat Media Complex that brainwashes our youth. The state of affairs is absolutely disgusting, but I thank Mr. Bozell for writing about their scandalous behavior. I enjoy him whenever he's on Hannity's show for "Media Mash" and that is the reason I bought the book. You won't be disappointed. Its excellent. There are chapters on the Hollywood rich whom the papers ignore when they engage in class warfare against the right. Not only is the Democratic Party the party of segregation and slavery, they are also the party of the fantastically rich such as Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and George Soros along with celebu-dope fatcats like George Clooney, Michael Moore, and Matt Damon.

Collusion smartly documents the myriad of examples of media bias and manipulation that happened in 2012. Obama may indeed owe Candy Crowley a $300-Million "energy subsidy." That said, it misses what worked for Obama -- technology, and the 30,000+ voter profiles into which the Obama machine categorized every voter, with pre-prepared messaging. How the GOP consultants fall for these Lucy-pulls-the-football tactics every election cycle just boggles the mind; perhaps if a campaign is "that" clueless, they deserve to lose; but, it's at the expense of the American people.

I heard Mr. Bozell on the radio discussing this book. Monica Crowley, Ph.D., interviewed him. Praises to the reviewers who are helping bring this out to the American people. The negative reviews here are examples of media bias. If America is to survive, we must expose the evil falsehoods the media put out against good conservative people who try to help our nation. The American people cannot figure things out, when things in favor of conservatives are suppressed so that the American people do not know about it. The book is full of details about media lies. A lie is a false statement that the speaker knows is false, but claims that it is true. In addition to actual lies, there are many sordid details about suppression of news vital to the interests of us Americans.

The media's responsibility is to present news as accurately as possible, and to totally ignore political consequences. When the media distorts the news it is like a doctor giving the wrong drug to a patient in order to get money from the manufacturer.

Here is a recent example. Immediately after the Travin Martin killing, the news media showed Martin's picture from the 9th grade. The implication was that this small young boy could not have posed a mortal threat to Zimmerman. Showing Martin's picture as a young boy was a lie. The lie was due to bias against using a gun in self-defense.

Here is another example from 1986. I visited Lebanon, and expected to see widespread destruction. A building here had some holes from Israeli shells, and a building there. The media report of widespread destruction was a lie. The American media was biased against Israel, and supported the Arabs.

Bozell's book is very long overdue. It should have been written decades ago.

I haven't read the book yet. There I said it. But unlike the trolls who gave this book (and every book written from the conservative side) one star, I intend to read it. They are virtually trying to hide the book so that the casual browsing reader will see the 2-3 star average and pass on. Amazon could improve the process by at least requiring that reviewers to buy the book before they are allowed to trash it. That way both the authors and the publishers will get something rather than be just a free target for those who oppose free speech.

This is a great document of the 2012 elections, building on the exposure of media bias brought to light by Bernard Goldberg. There is great disinterest in the faults of statist utopian candidates on the part of the traditional media to the point of actively under- and mis-reporting stories which cast them in a negative light. Bozell and Graham have given factual evidence to back their claims, even to the point of hiring an opinion pollster to ask Romney voters, "If you had accepted the liberal media's reporting as factual, truthful, and objective, would you have voted for Barack Obama?" Nearly 30% said they would have, and another 6% said they might have.

The one-star drive-by sniper "reviewers" will probably savage this book, as they have savaged all other conservative titles

My only criticism of the book overall is that I found it somewhat unnecessary. If you're conservative and you watch how the media covers events and individuals, the bias toward liberalism is obvious. The authors make some valid observations, but I wouldn't think any of it should come as a surprise to conservatives. We saw, for example, that every day while Bush was in office, the media DELIGHTED in splashing accounts of explosions and death relating to the Middle East war while highlighting none of the positive. The day O'Bama took office... they were done. Immediately. They'd made their point, they'd gotten Bush out of there, no need to drone on about the negative at that point. We who watch the news didn't need an expose to teach us these things. I'm more thinking this book was written for us to give to liberal friends who scoff when we talk about media bias. Then again, since when are liberals influenced by facts and logic? So I'm not sure who the audience is, but there's no denying the truth in what Bozell and Graham are saying. I appreciated how, rather than simply slinging around rhetoric, they exhaustively documented all of their points.
