"Cohen and Solomon are the sharpest media watchers in the business," -- Barbara Ehrenreich
"Solomon and Cohen know media bias and blather like a rancher knows BS." -- Jim Hightower, commenting on the authors' previous work
"The authors have a knack for articulating questions that lie dormant in the midst of headline news.... They have thousands of facts to back up their criticism of what they see as consistently sloppy, stupid, cowardly, corporate-run news coverage.... The charges are relentless, supported by facts and quotes, quite disturbing and uncomfortable--mighty welcome in these perilous merged-media times." -- Patricia Holt, Book Editor, San Francisco Chronicle, commenting on the authors' previous work
"The bold, muckraking tone of these columns offers a welcome respite from the decerebrated discourse that too often passes for contemporary journalism." -- Los Angeles Times, commenting on the authors' previous work
