Publisher's Summary

From Derek Hunter - one of the most entertaining political writers today - comes an insightful, alarming look at how progressives have took over academia, pop culture, and journalism in order to declare everything liberal great, and everything great, liberal. 

Progressives love to attack conservatives as anti-science, wallowing in fake news, and culturally backwards. But who are the real denialists here? 

There are three institutions in American life run by gatekeepers that have stopped letting in anyone who questions their liberal script: academia, journalism, and pop culture. They use their cult-like groupthink consensus as "proof" that science, reporting, and entertainment will always back up the Democrats. They give their most political members awards, and then say the awards make their liberal beliefs true. Worse, they are using that consensus to pull the country even further to the left, by bullying and silencing dissent from even those they've allowed in. 

Just a few years ago, the media pretended they were honest brokers. Now a CNN segment is seven liberals versus a sacrificial lamb. MSNBC ate their sacrificial lamb. Well, Chris Matthews did. Tired of being forced to believe or else, Derek Hunter exposes the manufactured truths and unwritten commandments of the Establishment. With research and a biting, sarcastic wit, he explains:

  • The growing role of celebrities in the political world, and movies with a "message" that dominate awards season, but rarely the box office
  • The unquestioning reporting on "studies" that don’t prove what they say they prove
  • The hidden bias of "fact-checking," when the media cherry picks which facts they check
  • Celebrity scientists like Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson blending liberal activism with pretend expertise outside their fields

Clever, controversial, and convincing, Derek Hunter's audiobook gets to the root of America's biggest cultural war lies.

Polemics as art

Derek does a great job dragging out, lining up, and identifying corpses in the Culture War brought by the collectivist/PC/Progressive left who claim to be some kind of political center. Given that we are a nation founded with a Constitution specifically designed to thwart their assault on humanity in the very name of humanism, and protect the economic engine that has made them so well off they can hack away at it with rhetoric and initiative with relative impunity, the left need exposing. Mr. Hunter gets it done while expressing true pathos for those left, right, and center who are, too often literally, maimed, wounded, or even killed by the lies of the left. Even moreso, he sounds alarm and invites refugees who, if they come from the indoctrination mills, can see the truths herein and come out of that regressive anti-American, anti-human, anti-anything-not-hard-left-and-leaning-further mess that is the American left.

Most outrage these days is manufactured. Everything has been politicized, liberals have tainted everything. Great read!

Who knew common sense could be so entertaining?

I listened to this book all the way through in one day at work, which is something I’ve never done before. I just couldn’t turn it off! I loved listening to Derek Hunter demolish all the liberal and mainstream media narratives that our society has been plagued with. Derek was also very entertaining in his delivery, and had me legit laughing out loud numerous times. This is a must listen for any conservative, or any liberal still trying to figure out why Trump won!

Bias in Media chronicled

Well chronicled headlines show media bias from the Left. Nothing new, but well put together. His voice was a little irritating.

Good Read for our Times.

A very good attack on PC and the bias in media reporting of everything. It is helpful in showing just how ridiculous things being reported as news have become. The need to fill an agenda and the rush to get something out there first has replaced investigative reporting. It also points out that there are no consequences for frivolous reporting. Well researched. Cites numerous examples and good narration. There are times when he becomes somewhat repetitive but overall the book keeps your attention. He also writes about how celebrities and the media work together to spin their leftist ideas and no one except those already on board care what they have to say.

Immensely Informative

Mr Hunter's book was fantastically written, well researched, and very humorous. As a young guy coming into the conservative scene, this piece has helped me understand the Left a bit more. I recommend it to anyone else trying to understand why the media is so bias against the Right.
