Mark Levin once again knocks one out of the park with this well researched and written narrative of how the press can't be trusted. For example, during WWII, the Jewish owned New York Times knew about the holocaust yet failed to report it. Likewise, it knew about the Ukrainian genocide and again failed to report it. He goes on to report specifics going on in the press today. We must be vigilant, research, and decide for ourselves what we believe, and not take the Faux News word for anything. A must read for all True Patriots.

Well-reasoned and historical account exposing the unapologetic bias of the mainstream media. I appreciate the author's call for truth and nothing but the truth from those who are privileged to report the news.

It is refreshing to read a book where the topic was actually researched and then the truth is written. You will NEVER see this from a liberal since most things are taken out of context with them and then the lies flood out of their mouths or into print. Thank you Mark.

Levin returns to his lawyerly roots of taking half truths and twisting them in his newest book. Rooted in the same paranoia of his right-wing radio show, the Unfreedom of the Press is a well-researched mis-representation of the current state of the media, a poster child for how "fake news" can so easily be represented as fact.

Bizarre! An extreme conservative/rightwing nut type, writes a book like this.
Except, will he blame the owners? Or claim, like the Pew Research Center did back around 2006, that the "media" is liberal?!?!
Let's recap: Officially, the PuppetMedia tells us that 14 billionaires control the media today. Of course, there are five major corporations which control the news, along with the online tech monpolies/oligopolies, but when we drill down even more, we find that the four investment firms are the major shareholders in just about ALL of those: BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street and Fidelity.
So perhaps it is just unknown investors, through those three or four investment firms, which control or influence the news? [I admit it is quite confusing and bewildering.]

Once again Mark Levin hit the ball out of the park with his well-researched book. You doubt what he says? Look it up in his thirty pages of citations. We are in the middle of a constitutional crisis and it's time someone told us what is going on. Do you want your media to expose official actions squelching free speech or be a propaganda tool for one party and its ideology? Don't believe me? Please read the book and tell me where I (and Mark Levin) are wrong. A must and very important read.

A collection of writings by a Fox News commentator can only be a banquet of intellectual splendor, overfilled with poetic intricacies and sophistication of thought—not to mention hours of fact-finding research.
