In this in this riveting and revealing book, Steve Levy, gives a gripping account of the real-life liberal bias in the media. Once his county's most popular politician, Steve shares a shocking story about how the media treats a politician who switches parties from Democrat to Republican.Few books have been written about switching political affiliations, its repercussions and its consequences.

Bias in the Media explores how the liberal media tries to shape the outcome of elections by:

1. Omitting information opposing their agenda
2. Printing outright false information
3. Determining who will be quoted in articles
4. Making morality decisions on what is "right" or correct

When Steve Levy was the Democratic county executive of New York's largest suburban county, he believed that complaints of liberal media bias were exaggerated. But after switching parties, running for governor and living in the shoes of a Republican office holder, he came to the conclusion that the bias is not only real, but is actually understated. The change in media coverage Levy experienced firsthand after switching his party from Democrat to Republican was nothing less than startling.

"During his years in Long Island politics and government Steve Levy bravely confronted and exposed the shameless hypocrisy, self-righteousness and left wing bias which pervade Newsday and the New York Times. Now, as an author, he convincingly completes the job. 'Bias In The Media' is a must read!" ~ Congressman Pete King

"Steve Levy gives you a real perspective of public service from the satisfaction of serving citizens to the incredible tribulations involved in switching parties...his unique perspective is all spelled out in this fascinating read." ~Brian Kilmeade , Fox News

About the Author

"While leading the state's largest suburban county, with a population of 1.5 million, a workforce of over 10,000 and a budget of $2.7 billion, Levy was renowned as one of the nation�s leading fiscally conservative managers. His record of eight consecutive years without a general fund tax increase was unsurpassed in New York during his tenure. He presided over seven bond rating upgrades, and was unique in submitting budgets spending less than the previous year's. Yet the liberal media sought to show that problems of Levy's successor stemmed from Levy's policies.

Levy gained national recognition for his efforts to deal with the financial and social consequences that the federal government's refusal to enforce immigration laws was having on local governments. Liberal media outlets such as the New York Times and Newsday vilified Levy for closing down overcrowded rooming houses and going after contractors who were hiring from the illegal economy. His appearances on Lou Dobbs, The O'Reilly Factor and Sean Hannity gave voice to millions of Americans who simply wanted to enforce our borders

At age 26, Levy was elected to the Suffolk County Legislature, serving fifteen years, rising to the Chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee and Deputy Presiding Officer. Thereafter, he served as a New York State assemblyman.

In 2003, Levy was elected as Suffolk County executive and proceeded to rescue the county from a $238 million shortfall. In 2007, Mr. Levy was re-elected with a record 96% of the vote. A former state and county legislator, and candidate for Governor of New York, Steve Levy served as County Executive of Suffolk County, New York from 2004-2011. He was endorsed by the Democratic, Republican, Conservative and Independent Parties.

In 2010, after being recruited by statewide Republican leaders, he changed his enrollment to Republican and sought that party's nomination for Governor. Prior to switching from the Democratic to the Republican Party in 2010, Levy registered some of the highest poll numbers for any official in Suffolk's history. Thereafter, he was met with fierce opposition from the Democratically controlled legislature.

Presently, Levy is a political commentator and strategist. He hosts ""The Steve Levy Show"" on LI News Radio 103.9 FM in the Long Island market. He is a regular columnist to the Washington Times and the Long Island Business News. He was also a contributing author to the book, The Recoveri
