    Damn this book a while. Rosenstiel wasn’t totally wrong when he argued that liberal bias in the media caused George HW Bush to lose the election. If Bush lost it was due to the following: - Bush fatigue within the public based on polls and ad tests - Clinton’s middle class plan and aura that proved change - Perot’s emergence despite dropping out and coming back in - Bush’s lack of self-composure and sound economic plan that would win the media and public over Also, what’s so liberal about the indictm Damn this book a while. Rosenstiel wasn’t totally wrong when he argued that liberal bias in the media caused George HW Bush to lose the election. If Bush lost it was due to the following: - Bush fatigue within the public based on polls and ad tests - Clinton’s middle class plan and aura that proved change - Perot’s emergence despite dropping out and coming back in - Bush’s lack of self-composure and sound economic plan that would win the media and public over Also, what’s so liberal about the indictment of Caspar Weinberger, the ex-Reagan cabinet member most tied to the IranContra Affair, and his memo that showed how Bush may have been implicated in the scandal? There’s nothing liberal about the media when it tries to dig up dirt on Jerry Brown for cocaine use, Bill Clinton for draft dodging and adultery, and Ross Perot for harassing his employees over the phone and potentially lying about his life being in danger. Even in the lead up to the 1992 election, Peter Jennings talked about the “liberal media” sucked up to Reagan when he was in power and, after Bush lost, Rosenstiel wrote about how Jennings felt Bush disappointed him after he admittedly favored Bush 4 years earlier. Yes there was a significant number of liberals in the media, but when Bush’s economic and professional record was so embarrassing that drop-out and re-entry candidate Ross Perot took away his popularity and votes and even finished 1st or 2nd in debates based on public polling and a network like ABC was obsessed about profit (you know a Republican habit?) based on the last chapter, accusing the media of liberal bias since 1992 somewhat baselessly should make supporters of Republican politicians worthy of ridicule because it’s they who put people like Trump, two Bushes, Steve King, and Dick Cheney into power. Thanks to their lunacy, Fox News and other right wing media outlets tapped into a delusional market and the same lunatics who blamed the “liberal media” once supportive of Reagan and Bush 41 are the biggest reason why our “empire” is about to collapse. After all, you can’t have good government or a stable country when you can’t overcome your anger and irrationality and apply both into the voting booth and that’s what “liberal media” accusers do regularly even though most of us want many of the same things.
