In The Republican Noise Machine, David Brock skillfully documents perhaps the most important but least understood political development of the last thirty years: how the Republican Right has won political power and hijacked public discourse in the United States.Brock, a former right-wing insider and the author of the New York Times bestseller Blinded by the Right, uses his keen understanding of the strategies, tactics, financing, and personalities of the American right wing to demonstrate how the once-fringe phenomenon of right-wing media has all but subsumed the regular media conversation, shaped the national consciousness, and turned American politics sharply to the right.Brock documents how in the last several decades the GOP built a powerful media machine--newspapers and magazines, think tanks, talk radio networks, op-ed columnists, the FOX News Channel, Christian Right broadcasting, book publishers, and high-traffic internet sites--to sell conservatism to the public and discredit its opponents. This unabashedly biased multibillion-dollar communications empire disregards journalistic ethics and universal standards of fairness and accuracy, manufacturing "news" that is often bought and paid for by a tight network of corporate-backed foundations and old family fortunes. By dissecting the appeal, techniques, and reach of the booming right-wing media market, Brock demonstrates that it is largely based on bigotry, ignorance, and emotional manipulation closely tied to America’s longstanding cultural divisions and the buying power of anti-intellectual traditionalists. From the disputed 2000 presidential election to the war with Iraq to the political battles of 2004, Brock's penetrating analysis of right-wing media theories and methodology reveals that the Republican Right views the media as an extension of a broader struggle for political power. By tracing the political impact of right-wing media, Brock shows how disproportionate conservative influence in the media is integrally linked to the Republican Right’s current domination of all three branches of government, to the propping up of the Bush administration, and to the inability of Democrats to voice their opposition to this political sea change or to compete on an even playing field.As only an ex-conservative intimately familiar with the imperatives of the American right wing could, David Brock suggests ways in which concerned Americans can begin to redress the conservative ascendancy and cut through the propagandistic fog. Writing with verve and deep insight, he reaches far beyond typical bromides about media bias to produce an invaluable account of the rise of right-wing media and its political consequences. Promising to be the political book of the year, The Republican Noise Machine will transform the raging yet heretofore unsatisfying debate over the politics of the media for years to come.From the Hardcover edition.

This book is a fantastic expose on how the majority of modern "conservative" media exists solely to advance the interests of those who own the publications without concern for traditional values of a free press in America. Truth is only used to the extent that it can provide enough credibility to the lies typically contained within the same story or editorial and balance is absolutely nonexistent. David Brock, who worked in the proverbial "Republican Noise Machine" for nearly twenty years, provides a fascinating and disturbing narrative about strategy meetings and organized attempts to discredit legitimate journalism by those who fully understood that they would never win in a world where voters were well-informed so strategies were created to undermine the ability of their constituents to learn the truth and even discern truth from fiction.

Educate yourself to the propaganda and misinformation endlessly hammered into the unassuming minds of our populace. Our corporate masters win when people are brainwashed into hating their fellow citizens, immigrants and minority groups. Why support s
healthcare when the world only consists of lazy moochers and amoral aliens. It astounds me that people believe that this is an unbiased, professional and reliable news source!

David Brock is an excellent writer -- he puts things in perspective brilliantly. And in this book he exposes so many "right-wing" monstrosities!

Q. Why does Rush Limbaugh frequently insist that he is honest?

A. Because the average person would never come to that conclusion on their own.

The honesty of a commentator should be self evident. On Limbaugh, Shakespeare might say, "I think thou dost protest too much". A writer once said about Ann Coulter's book `Treason', "The distain for the reader is hard to believe, but apparently well placed". Coulter could not possibly be so blatantly dishonest with her readers and have the slightest respect for them. Rush and Ann are just two examples of the Republican `Echo Chamber' that has grown over the last three decades.

The Republican Noise machine began when conservatives discovered that the wealthy and powerful were willing to pay big bucks to have their ideas polished and disseminated. The money was/is funneled into think tanks whose raison d'être is to parrot the views of their patrons. There is a misconception that think tanks are analysis groups when in actuality they're more like marketing firms with ideas as products. You can't possibly do acceptable analysis of a problem when you're working a priori. Unlike traditional marketing, which is generally recognizable as marketing, think tanks present their products to news sources as opinion pieces and often as legitimate analysis. When a viewer reads an article on the Fox News website about Global Warming it may well be written by an individual or think tank bankrolled by Exxon Mobile. How much cheaper is it for any news organization, right leaning or not to simply accept a prepackaged propaganda piece from the Heritage Foundation or Cato Institute and present it as a legitimate news item rather than do their own investigation?

Think tank writers may be correct in their opinions or they may be wrong but the viewer is almost assuredly misled. Steven Milloy is never going to include evidence supporting Global Warming because he's paid by big oil not that you'd know that by reading his articles. The one absolute in think tanks is ideological purity. It has to be a soul crushing experience to be compressed into such narrow thinking. The result is a consistent message that gets echoed through conservative news sources until it becomes conventional wisdom even among moderates. Even subtle details like specific emotion evoking buzz words are included in the taking points. The goal is to produce an all encompassing propaganda barrage that literally leaves society less informed.

Conservatives have no tradition of respect for freedom of speech or diversity of opinion and Fox news owner Rupert Murdoch and news director Roger Ailes are quite open about there disrespect for journalism. This creates a toxic combination that renders the news, at best, biased opinion pieces, at worst government propaganda. Fox News is blatantly biased because conservatives feel no need to be balanced. If you're convinced unequivocally that you have the absolute right answers and the right cause why bother giving equal or even marginal credence to other ideas. As the writer points out Fox news, as the prototype for future news casting, is literally destroying journalism which surely puts a smile on Murdoch's face.

This is a terrific book packed with tons of information. It's certainly not a feel good book but it is enlightening and I highly recommend it.

You missed the point, sir. Yes, it is true that CBS based a portion of a 60 Minutes II segment on documents that appear to be of questionable validity. HOWEVER -- CBS has admitted their error and invited outsiders to come into CBS and investigate the matter. I trust that CBS will give more coverage to the final outcome than they did to the original story. Ditto for NPR -- I contribute to and listen to NPR and when NPR boradcasts something that is not accurate, they come back and correct their inaccuracies. As far as I can tell, Fox, the Moonie Times, Regnery Publishing, and the like have never corrected the lies, distortions, and misrepresetations that make up the vast majority of their productions. The truth is simple: Fox is Pravda for Republicans.
