“With knowledge there is victory and power. This book helps Americans learn the truth and discover how we are being manipulated by the mainstream media. It is hard to understate how brilliant and insightful Left Turn is. It is, I believe, one of the most important books ever written about American politics.”--Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (R-Ga.)
“I’m no conservative, but I loved Left Turn. Tim Groseclose has written the best kind of book: one that is firmly anchored in rigorous academic research, but is still so much fun to read that it is hard to put down. Liberals will not like the conclusions of this book, which in my opinion, is all the more reason why they should want to read it.”--Steven Levitt, Professor of Economics, University of Chicago, and co-author of Freakonomics.
"This book—an evolution from the pioneering article in the 2005 Quarterly Journal of Economics by Groseclose and Jeffrey Milyo—uses a clever statistical technique to construct an objective measure of conservative or liberal bias in news coverage. This method and those now adopted by other serious researchers show clearly that most U.S. news outlets lean left. Most frighteningly, we learn that the media bias actually affects the ways that people think and vote.”--Robert Barro, Professor of Economics, Harvard University, and Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution.
"This book serves up the most convincing evidence for media bias I have seen, ever. Tim Groseclose is the leading academic scholar in the area, but this is a smartly-written book which every person can read for enlightenment and also for pleasure."--Tyler Cowen, Professor of Economics, George Mason University, and co-author of the internationally acclaimed economics blog, MarginalRevolution.com.
"In writing this book Professor Groseclose has done a great service for our country."
--Congressman Allen West (R-Fla.), (Lt. Col. U.S. Army, ret.)
Reading this book opened my eyes and answered a lot of questions I once had.
The book is well written, nicely researched, and contains a good mixture of anecdotal evidence and scientific analysis.
It will no doubt be irritating to liberals that Dr. Groseclose's research shows most media to be slanted to the left.
A very well researched and written book. Hard to argue with his methodology or his conclusions.Published 6 hours ago by Mark Rohloff
