CORPORATE MEDIA EXPOSED BY A PROGRESSIVE WHO GOT INSIDE

In his new book, Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media, Jeff Cohen takes you inside TV news and the conservative biases, timidity and tabloidism that dominate it. Few media critics have been afforded an intimate, on-the-job view of the outlets they condemn, but Cohen -- who founded the media watch group FAIR -- spent years at CNN, Fox News and MSNBC. He was a senior producer at MSNBC's Donahue during the run-up to the Iraq war, and witnessed war-enabling bias and censorship firsthand.

He tells all in a biting, humorous paperback taking aim at the entire rightwing hot-air brigade that Cohen saw up close: O'Reilly, Hannity, Buchanan, Novak, Falwell, etc. (Ann Coulter wouldn't debate him.) The book includes a foreword by Jim Hightower.

MOLLY IVINS says: "Jeff Cohen's dissection of cable TV news is both irresistibly funny and civically painful. It goes from uproarious anecdotes to those that make you wince."

IF YOU LIKED "OUTFOXED," YOU'LL LOVE CABLE NEWS CONFIDENTIAL. The book has won praise from Robert Greenwald, Tim Robbins, Studs Terkel, Bob McChesney and others.

BARBARA EHRENREICH: "A deliciously funny expose." HOWARD ZINN: "Future historians will have this book as a primary text." AMY GOODMAN: "Read this book and fight for change."

HELP MAKE THIS BOOK A BIG SELLER.

EXPOSE THE MYTH OF A "LIBERAL MEDIA."

ASK STORES TO ORDER IT. PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE.
