In their new book Collusion, L. Brent Bozell and his co-author Tim Graham argue that, unquestionably, 2012 was the year when the liberal news media did all in its power to steal the national election. Never before has the so-called mainstream media shown such naked political bias as in the 2012 presidential election cycle. By hiding failures, trumpeting accomplishments, and discrediting the credentials of opposition party rivals, the national media facilitated a narrow reelection of the President. Time and again negative stories, innuendo, and irrelevant storytelling served to undermine one national candidate to the benefit of another. Bozell and Graham highlight lessons learned from the 2012 election and show conservatives how to identify, challenge and avoid these threats to democracy in the future.
L. Brent Bozell III is Founder and President of the Media Research Center, a national media watchdog organization. He is also the author of Whitewash: What the Media Won’t Tell You about Hillary Clinton, but Conservatives Will (also with Tim Graham) andWeapons of Mass Distortion: The Coming Meltdown of the Liberal Media. Co-author Tim Graham serves as the Media Research Center’s Director of Media Analysis.
