Unfreedom of the Press Mark R. Levin Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

From six-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, FOX News star, and radio host Mark R. Levin comes a groundbreaking and enlightening book that shows how the great tradition of the American free press has degenerated into a standardless profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the American public, not through actions of government officials, but through its own abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism.

Unfreedom of the Press is not just another book about the press. Levin shows how those entrusted with news reporting today are destroying freedom of the press from within: “not government oppression or suppression,” he writes, but self-censorship, group-think, bias by omission, and passing off opinion, propaganda, pseudo-events, and outright lies as news.

With the depth of historical background for which his books are renowned, Levin takes the reader on a journey through the early American patriot press, which proudly promoted the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, followed by the early decades of the Republic during which newspapers around the young country were open and transparent about their fierce allegiance to one political party or the other.

It was only at the start of the Progressive Era and the twentieth century that the supposed “objectivity of the press” first surfaced, leaving us where we are today: with a partisan party-press overwhelmingly aligned with a political ideology but hypocritically engaged in a massive untruth as to its real nature.

  • THE ENEMY

    It is unacceptable how the media has changed since the 1970s, now it is truly an enemy against our freedoms. All free-thinking Americans should be worried, and take a stand against the injustices in the press.

    #1 on the New York Best Sellers List for 4 consecutive weeks and not a mention in the “press” no reviews in the Times or anywhere else. Not even on this sites “New and trending”.

    Finally someone exposing the dishonesty of our “so-called” media. It has come to a point in our nation’s history that we hold our media accountable and demand honesty journalism, not political activism masquerading as journalism...Thank you Mr. Levin for the excellent book.

    Mark has identified and explained how the press has deteriorated to the point that they are ignoring the biggest threat to our society since the Civil War. An important and compelling book.
  • Great Book!

    This book was an indictment on the dishonest media. It takes a look at the so called “free press” from so many logical angles. I really enjoyed it!!!
