A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (and Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media
by Bernard Goldberg
 
"The press," Goldberg reminds us, "has constitutional protections for one main reason: to keep watch over a powerful government." If the press is compromised, a corrupt government that it favors will be able to get away with murder. That's the danger we all face when the mainstream media forgets its job and goes on a noble mission to make history -- as it did when it went into the tank for Obama. That's why A Slobbering Love Affair is a cautionary tale -- and a manual for action for conservatives who are determined not to let this brazen corruption continue.

The real reason why the media's bias problem persists -- and why nothing will change anytime soon.
 
How the mainstream media is dying a slow death -- in part because of its open partisanship and advocacy for the Left.

"If the people fail to vote, a government will be developed
which is not their government. The whole system of
American Government rests on the ballot box. Unless
citizens perform their duties there, such a system of
government is doomed to failure."
Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the USA.
