About this item

With outrageous examples of left-wing media bias and insider scoops on front-page skirmishes between the Trump White House and reporters, Howard Kurtz's new book is an astonishing exposé of the media industry that is reminiscent of Bernard Goldberg's game changing New York Times bestseller Bias.Donald Trump is staking his presidency, as he did his election, on destroying the credibility of American journalists. Ordinarily, Howie Kurtz - a media critic who spent 30 years reporting for The Washington Post - would be outraged. But Kurtz has had a front seat to the degradation of the news business. Having witnessed so many journalists' slow slide from neutral truth-tellers to polemic activists, Kurtz asks: Could the White House's disgust with the media be (at least partially) justified?Let's look at the facts: MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump should be removed under the 25th Amendment.
