This was an entertaining and easy read. I really enjoyed the voice of the author in the book. I actually read it in one day, which for me, rarely happens with a nonfiction book. The author made lots of interesting and entertaining points. ( )

Tells it like it is though we wish it weren't so. ( )

Bernard Goldberg’s brief but memorable A Slobbering Love Affair recounts the myriad ways in which the USA’s mainstream media lionized – indeed, nearly deified – Barack Obama as he ran for president in 2007-2008: the gushy, embarrassing news stories; the ‘journalists’ swooning on camera; and perhaps most serious, the utter lack of interest in Obama’s background, character and associations, i.e. the media’s refusal to do their jobs and investigate.

Goldberg’s tone is sardonic; at times it borders on despairing. How can the great majority of journalists, whose role is so central to the American system, sell their integrity so cheaply? Goldberg suggests it’s a combination of these liberal journalists’ desire to ‘effect change’ and ultimately to feel good about themselves.

read this tome as a contrast to 71 days, the only reason to read it and see what the opposing arguments are.
