The author attempts to show that the liberal bias of the press is nothing more than a canard propagated by the Right for their own reasons. In a lively muckraking style, Alterman lays out plenty of evidence to which he applies seemingly irrefutable logic. This would be a welcome counterweight to the current proliferation of liberal bashing, but for two factors: As a professed liberal, Alterman has his own biases, and as a narrator he has grievous faults. His tone is cocky and his diction abysmal. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
