"Vitally important, devastatingly thorough, and shockingly revealing.... After reading Primetime Propaganda, you'll never watch TV the same way again." --Mark Levin Movie critic Michael Medved calls Ben Shapiro, "One of our most refreshing and insightful voices on the popular culture, as well as a conscience for his much-maligned generation." With Primetime Propaganda, the syndicated columnist and bestselling author of Brainwashed, Porn Generation, and Project President tells the shocking true story of how the most powerful medium of mass communication in human history became a vehicle for spreading the radical agenda of the left side of the political spectrum. Similar to what Bernard Goldberg's Bias and A Slobbering Love Affair did for the liberal news machine, Shapiro's Primetime Propaganda is an essential exposé of corrupting media bias, pulling back the curtain on widespread and unrepentant abuses of the Hollywood entertainment industry.… (more)

A bit dated, but fascinating for it's depth and breadth of research. Ben interviewed and quoted many, many people in this book, and they were quite candid about their choices and biases. It's not a book complaining about how liberal news is or broadcast TV is, but a book about the history and possible future of the medium based on the apparent nature of those in charge.

A long-winded book that does not deliver what it purports that it will. The "liberal left" - or those that support the Democratic party are the forces that have taken over the television industry and the "conservative right" have been shut out - including the author repetitively tells you - from employment opportunities. There is information on who headed what studios and produced what shows mixed in with the author's rant. A waste of time, and a book which I just scanned page after page after the first two chapters to unfortunately discover that there was no merit. ( )
