...the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media.

Image

This book is long in title and insightful into a topical discussion on...you guessed it...Bernard Goldberg's view of media support for Obama and how it has turned its back on integrity and objectivity.

The Book Review wrote:
Do the mainstream media have a liberal bias? Sure they do, everyone knows that, says CBS veteran and New York Times bestselling author Bernard Goldberg. But the media crossed an important line in the 2008 presidential race, moving from their usual unthinking liberal bias to crass partisanship of the crudest kind, practically acting as spin doctors for the presidential campaign of Barack Obama. In A Slobbering Love Affair, his most provocative book yet, Goldberg demonstrates how the media launched an unparalleled effort to ensure the election of the man they regarded as The One.

From the thrill Obama sent up Chris Matthews' leg to the outrageously slanted "news" reports of the New York Times, Goldberg shows in exacting detail how the media, abandoning even the pretense of objectivity, moved from media bias to media activism. With his trademark blunt, honest, insider's perspective, Goldberg reveals:


* How the media ignored, downplayed, or sanitized the rantings of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama's long-standing "spiritual" adviser, and the radicalism of former terrorist (and Obama associate) Bill Ayers

* How the Obama campaign, while claiming to be "post-partisan," kicked reporters off Obama's plane after their newspapers endorsed McCain

* Why Obama's election makes it more likely conservative talk radio will be stifled by a new "Fairness Doctrine" that has nothing to do with fairness at all

* Why the liberal media preferred Obama to Hillary


Seems to me that Obama, being the good man he is, has been embarrassed by this adulation. Several times during the campaign, he verbally encouraged his adoring audience to tone it down, commented how the media rising from their seats in his presence made him jittery, and calling for his fanatic supporters to calm down.

I am waiting for the book to come out in paperback. You can order A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media (Hardcover) here.
