I don't watch much TV news and read newspapers and magazines infrequently, so I had bought into the myth of the liberally biased press until I read 71 Days! The conservative bias of Fox News didn't surprise me, but that of the rest of the main stream news did. Having an intelligent and knowledgeable observer, who shared my belief in Barack Obama's sincerity, track the various news media over the 71 days of the 2008 campaign was enlightening to say the least. This book was amazingly researched, intelligently written and wonderfully informative. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in an objective look at the press coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign.

Great Book. Excellent author. Perfect review of what "news" has become. Mr. Overstreet nailed it perfectly.

The argument that the media was anything but gentle with Sen. Obama is a tough one to make, and [71 Days] is unable to make it. The vision of the campaign in this book is not the vision that anyone who lived through the campaign will recognize. As a former Obama staffer, and still a strong supporter, I am not writing this as a smear against Obama. Rather, it is important to realize that this literary work is NOT accurate and should not be treated as such. I wish I could rank it lower than one star.

A brilliant combination of insight, opinion, and astute observation. "71 Days: The Media Assault on Obama " is written like a political private diary of the most public days in recent history. It reads quickly and easily, validating a perspective on the mainstream media that many a frustrated election watcher struggled with. After reading the first chapter I proclaimed to myself, "Thank goodness, I was not alone! What I saw and thought about the media bias against Obama is shared and finally and articulated." Highly recommended.!

Media assult on Obama? That's rich. The "hard fought primary" against Hillary consisted of the MSM slamming Clinton at every turn to clear the way for their Messiah BHO.
Get real people. Bernie Goldberg (CBS veteran of 25 years) has it right with "A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media".

In Black and White: The Media and the Election of President Barack Obama

Also a great read on the media and Obama is In Black and White: The Media and the Election of President Barack Obama, which is available on AMAZON. In Black and White begins at the time of Obama's anouncement in February 2007 and ends on election day. A good overall look at the media.
