David Freddoso's "Spin Masters: How the Media Ignored the Real News and Helped Re-elect Barack Obama" is essential reading for how the palace guard media stole the 2012 presidential election for Barack Obama. This wasn't an election, but a media selection.
In 2008, conservative publisher Regnery pumped out a quickie campaign book titled "The Case Against Barack Obama." Its author, the young political reporter David Freddoso, debunked several conspiracy theories about the Democratic nominee for president, including the latest birther drivel. Mr. Freddoso's sober case against Mr. Obama was grounded in his subject's actual experience in Illinois politics.
"The problem isn't that journalists are too hard on Republicans," writes Mr. Freddoso. "The problem is that they often won't do journalism at all unless they are covering a Republican."
Mr. Freddoso writes, "If you rely on the mainstream media for news, you would have gotten the impression that this centerpiece of Obama's economic plan -- the waste of billions of dollars creating a vanity industry with no jobs to speak of -- was a minor matter, of far less significance than say, Mitt Romney's tax returns or his dog Seamus."
