Do the mainstream media have a liberal bias? Sure they do, says CBS veteran and New York Times bestselling author Bernard Goldberg. But the media crossed an important line in the 2008 presidential race, moving from their usual unthinking liberal bias to crass partisanship of the crudest kind, practically acting as spin doctors for the presidential campaign of Barack Obama. In A Slobbering Love Affair, his most provocative book yet, Goldberg demonstrates how the media launched an unparalleled effort to ensure the election of the man they regarded as the One. From the thrill Obama sent up Chris Matthews’s leg to the outrageously slanted “news” reports of the New York Times, Goldberg shows in exacting detail how the media, abandoning even the pretense of objectivity, moved from media bias to media activism. With his trademark blunt, honest insider’s perspective, Goldberg reveals:

  • how the media ignored, downplayed, or sanitized the rantings of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s long-standing “spiritual” advisor, and the radicalism of former terrorist (and Obama associate) Bill Ayers;
  • how the Obama campaign, while claiming to be “post-partisan,” kicked reporters off Obama’s plane after their newspapers endorsed McCain;
  • why Obama’s election makes it more likely conservative talk radio will be stifled by a new “Fairness Doctrine” that has nothing to do with fairness at all;
  • why the liberal media preferred Obama to Hillary; and
  • what we can expect from the media’s coverage of Obama’s presidency.

A blistering takedown of the media’s slavish support for Obama, A Slobbering Love Affair highlights how the mainstream media has not only surrendered its integrity and objectivity but could even endanger our democracy.

BONUS: An exclusive interview with Rush Limbaugh on the unholy alliance between Obama and the mainstream media

    " This book confirmed pretty much what I had already suspected or knew about the Liberal Mainstream Media and their relationship with Obama. However it was nice to see specific examples of the bias the media has with BHO and the list of those journalists who are the worst offenders. "

    " It's really unfortunate that this book was written by Bernard Goldberg in his childishly partisan manner because I think otherwise it's a very fair and intriguing premise. Also, very little about the primary which is what we all really care about anyway, right? Oh well! "

    " Good book. I liked it. "

    " reading this book dredged up all the bad memories that I had from the election. This is a book that looks at the mainstream media and the ridiculous bias that they used to influence the American public and the presidential election. everyone complains that FOX is such a conservative station, well take a look at just about every other station out there (hint, hint - MSNBC and CNN) and you'll get knocked out by liberalism. When the mainstream media's only role in the election should have been as a reference to the American public, a neutral place to get information to help one make an informed decision, the reality is that they were far far from it. The media made their decision and proclaimed their love for their fantasy presidential candidate and shoved their infatuation down everyone's throat. You can't tell me that there wasn't a bias in media coverage and in how information about the candidates was passed down to the public. "
