''David Freddoso's terrific new book Spin Masters documents more than routine media bias - though he has plenty of outrageous examples of that. It's about how the media ignored or buried the big stories - like how Obama has hollowed out our economy or openly trampled on the Constitution - in favor of Democratic Party press releases. Freddoso reports the news you didn't hear during the election - and also shows how we can avoid falling prey to the hypocritical and absurdly partisan liberal media again.'' --David Limbaugh, New York Times bestselling author
''If you had a scintilla of respect left for the mainstream media, David Freddoso's excellent new book Spin Masters will shred it. He reports on the big stories the mainstream media didn't and shows how if you relied on the mainstream media, you would have been less well informed than if you turned off your radio and television and canceled your newspaper subscription.'' --David Harsanyi, author of Obama's Four Horsemen
''Media bias mostly takes the form of omission. In 2012, the media mostly omitted mention of Obama's many offenses against ethics, good government, and the truth. In Spin Masters, David Freddoso deftly tells the stories that most of the mainstream media missed because a dog on the roof of a car was more interesting than, say, an illegal military intervention in Libya or serial abuse of presidential power. I challenge anyone to read this book and then honestly deny that Obama's reelection was aided by a media that didn't do its job right.'' --Timothy P. Carney, senior political columnist, Washington Examiner
''Conservatives need to know they are not just up against political activists on the left. They are also up against a media that leans left, regurgitates left-wing talking points, and transitions back and forth between left-wing institutions and the mainstream media. David Freddoso does an excellent job shedding light on just what conservatives are up against and what they must do to fight back.'' --Erick Erickson, editor of RedState.com
''Freddoso not only shows how deeply in the Obama tank many journalists were in 2012. He also serves as an alternate-universe assignment desk for the stories unbiased reporters might have written.'' --Byron York, chief political correspondent, Washington Examiner --This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.

For example: in one of the debates, President Obama said he had acknowledged on the morning of Sept. 12, 2012 that Benghazi was a terrorist attack. Later we found out that on that same afternoon, he had told one of the major networks that he didn't know what it was. The network left that portion of the interview on the cutting room floor until the election. Is it important for our president to tell the complete truth?
In "Spin Masters" you will discover that the real objective of the mainstream media in 2012 was to defect attention away from critical issues like high unemployment, the attack on our embassy in Benghazi and the Justice Department's ill-advised and patently illegal "Operation Fast and Furious" that had the potential to thwart the President's re-election bid. Democrats were desperate to change the subject and sycophants in the media like George Stephanopoulos and Chris Matthews were all too willing to help. The Washington press corps simply refused to ask the tough questions on these and a host of other troubling subjects. Instead, the focus of the media shifted away from the real issues to the phony ones that they managed to create.Read more ›
