    A Good Read

    Like with any book on the media you must learn to sift through the politcal leanings mumbo jumbo to examine the heart of the issue. While other reviewers call the book liberal, I say that while it does have liberal pitch it still outlines some vital facts about the media. It's primary focus serves to remind Americans that news is first and foremost a business. And the money involved is the reason why the left and right argue, their opinions are only the ammunition they select. Covers some interesting issues, but as always in the media 'fair and balanced' exists only in the mind of the reader. For a more conservative perspective try Ann Coulter or Dick Morris. Or better yet read Auletta and Morris and make the decision for yourself.
