Eric Alterman's "What Liberal Media?" is a mostly interesting liberal view of the almighty media. Certain points of the book appear very long winded and downright boring. It's not the subject matter that is dreary but Mr. Alterman's speaking technique that makes me fall asleep at the wheel. (Caution: Do not listen to this book if you have a long commute or during a road trip. You'll be sorry.) His slight lisp and monotone drove me up the wall. Instead of LISTENING to the book, just pick it up and actually read it. 3 stars for the subject matter. 2 stars for the audio aspect.

Painstakingly researched and eminently fair, this well written research project is long overdue. Alterman debunks, quite thoroughly, the notion that the media have a meaningful left leaning bias. Indeed, he shows that conservative interests are represented in the media in much great propensity than is the conservative viewpoint among the population in general. In short, he shows that liberal media are few and far between and conservative media are ubiquitous.
