Summary
Do the mainstream media have a liberal bias? Sure they do, says CBS veteran and New York Times bestselling author Bernard Goldberg. But the media crossed an important line in the 2008 presidential race, moving from their usual unthinking liberal bias to crass partisanship of the crudest kind, practically acting as spin doctors for the presidential campaign of Barack Obama. In A Slobbering Love Affair, his most provocative book yet, Goldberg demonstrates how the media launched an unparalleled effort to ensure the election of the man they regarded as the One. From the thrill Obama sent up Chris Matthews's leg to the outrageously slanted "news" reports of the New York Times, Goldberg shows in exacting detail how the media, abandoning even the pretense of objectivity, moved from media bias to media activism. With his trademark blunt, honest insider's perspective, Goldberg reveals: -How the media ignored, downplayed, or sanitized the rantings of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama's long-standing "spiritual" adviser, and the radicalism of former terrorist (and Obama associate) Bill Ayers-How the Obama campaign, while claiming to be "post-partisan," kicked reporters off Obama's plane after their newspapers endorsed McCain-Why Obama's election makes it more likely conservative talk radio will be stifled by a new "Fairness Doctrine" that has nothing to do with fairness at all-Why the liberal media preferred Obama to Hillary-What we can expect from the media's coverage of Obama's presidency-BONUS: An exclusive interview with Rush Limbaugh on the unholy alliance between Obama and the mainstream mediaA blistering takedown of the media's slavish support for Obama, A Slobbering Love Affair highlights how the mainstream media has not only surrendered its integrity and objectivity but could even endanger our democracy
Summary
Bernard Goldberg discusses in scathing detail the mainstream media's outright obsession with and extreme favoritism of Barack Obama, from his race for presidency to his place in office. Tackling such topics as the media's downplay of Obama's association with Bill Ayers, their favoring of Obama over Hillary, and how they'll cover Obama's presidency, Goldberg leaves no stone unturned in this intense examination of active media partisanship
