Mark Levin has written a new book: Unfreedom of the Press, soon to be released:
From the Amazon review:
... Unfreedom of the Press is not just another book about the press. Levin shows how those entrusted with news reporting today are destroying freedom of the press from within: "not government oppression or suppression," he writes, but self-censorship, group-think, bias by omission, and passing off opinion, propaganda, pseudo-events, and outright lies as news.
With the depth of historical background for which his books are renowned, Levin takes the reader on a journey through the early American patriot press, which proudly promoted the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, followed by the early decades of the Republic during which newspapers around the young country were open and transparent about their fierce allegiance to one political party or the other.
It was only at the start of the Progressive Era and the twentieth century that the supposed "objectivity of the press" first surfaced, leaving us where we are today: with a partisan party-press overwhelmingly aligned with a political ideology but hypocritically engaged in a massive untruth as to its real nature.
The timing of the book is propitious, as it coincides with the culmination of fake media news on the Muller investigation. I haven't read the book, but I have heard Levin discuss the book on his show on Sirius XM Patriot channel. He says the book is readable, informative, and extensively researched. It covers media from the time of the Revolution to today's single-party media.
Based on the quality of his other books that I have read, let me suggest that this is a book to read. You can pre-order the book, which it will help propel the book onto best-seller lists. - Fred Elbel, CAIRCO.
