Freddoso does more than just document
media bias in Spin Masters: he exposes the stories the
mainstream refused to share. As Byron York puts it, Spin Masters "serves as an alternate-universe
assignment desk for the stories unbiased reporters might have written." Spin Masters is packed with Freddoso's
investigative journalism, brimming with examples of the media's willful
abdication of their responsibility to be objective or even to respect simple
"If you had a scintilla of respect left for the mainstream media,
David Freddoso's excellent new book Spin Masters will shred it," author and
columnist David Harsanyi raves.
Not only did the media openly cheerlead
for Obama; they circled like a pack of bullies around his opponent, showing more
intellectual curiosity in a dumb story about his dog than scandals such as the
murder of a US ambassador in Benghazi. Spin Masters tells the straight story about
Romney's merits and demonstrates just how far out of their way the media was
willing to go to tarnish his image, sometimes flirting with the boundary between
muddled truth and outright fiction.
Spin Masters is the absolute must-read book to
usher in Barack Obama's second term as president: read it now, and prepare to
fight for the truth in the next four years.
