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, groupthink, bias by omission, and passing off opinion, propaganda, pseudo-events, and outright lies as news.

I have read many of Mr. Levin’s books and find them enlightening. He makes it interesting and enjoyable to learn the facts of any subject he is addressing. His research I find is excellent. I find more material and other books to read by checking out his sources. This book should make anyone who believes in facts take pause when listening or reading “news”. I was in the dark about several items in this book especially concerning the New York Times lack of coverage of the Ukraine and the Holocaust. That they basically covered it up is shameful.

Journalists should be objective in their reporting and
many are not as evidenced in this book. We need a free press but we also need journalists that report facts not talking points of whatever side of the isle you favor. Other wise the journalists are no better than those who work for the government paper Pravda in Russia.

The first investigation into why a ring of senior Washington officials went rogue to derail the election and the presidency of Donald Trump. There was nothing normal about the 2016 presidential election, not when senior US officials were turning the surveillance powers of the federal government - designed to stop terrorist attacks - against the Republican presidential team. These were the ruthless tactics of a Soviet-style police state, not a democratic republic.
