Mark Levin's 'Unfreedom of the Press' ia #1 New York Times bestselling book. From Amazon:

From five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, FOX News star, and radio host Mark R. Levin comes a groundbreaking and enlightening book that shows how the great tradition of the American free press has degenerated into a standardless profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the American public, not through actions of government officials, but through its own abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism.
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....
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.

Mark Levin can be heard on Sirius XM radio.

As a result, Levin said, the modern mass media’s ongoing objectivity myth is “destroying the institution of the press,” later adding that “the reporting today, the newsrooms today, they’re basically the Praetorian Guard for big, overarching, centralized government.”
Levin details this media downward spiral in his new best-selling book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” which chronicles the history of American journalism from the revolutionary era to today. He went on to explain that the modern mass media has sown the seeds of its own destruction as technology revolutionizes the information market....
