Description

From six-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.

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.

    Thank you for the exposure of our time ..the lying NYT who has been setting the pace of the mainstream tv and internet news as well is a shameful propaganda machine; their slander and libel can not be tolerated by a free people.

    Well written, smart, eye-opening. Since reading this book, I’ve seen how corrupt the media is. From Apple News to New York Times. It’s all out there. It’s scary. Thank you Mr. Levin for your extensive research and all your hard work. You’re a true patriot.

    Great read and the truth. It was easy to digest mentally. I can easily quote parts of the work in discussion groups. We need this in junior high curriculum and beyond. I hope that we get the word out quickly. Thanks Mark, John D. Tankersley Jr.

    Those that give it one star are the biased Communist, that love lies in the media. They are consumed by evil hate of those that want what is good, because they love destruction, and all that is evil.

    Enlightening, factually researched and annotated account of how the main stream media can no longer be trusted to state unbiased, factual accounts of current events including this site that does not include conservative books such as this one on their top seller lists.

    It is unacceptable how the media has changed since the 1970s, now it is truly an enemy against our freedoms. All free-thinking Americans should be worried, and take a stand against the injustices in the press.
