Conventional wisdom states that the media is dominated by liberals and the news is skewed against conservative political thought. Eric Alterman debunks this belief in a lengthy attempt to set the record straight. Alterman not only addresses the myth of the liberal media, he examines and rebuts every argument for the idea. After dealing with the general perception of the media's liberal bias, Alterman demonstrates in painstaking detail that the majority of commentators are conservative, well-paid, and often inaccurate or intentionally misleading. George Wilson handles the text ably and with passion, capturing Alterman's intensity and bringing his fervency to the fore. Wilson also deserves credit for pacing the text well. D.J.S.
