Unfreedom of the Press by
Mark R Levin. This "groundbreaking and enlightening book that shows how the great tradition
of the American free press has degenerated into a standardless
profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the American
public, not through actions of government officials, but through its own
abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism.
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, group-think, bias by
omission, and passing off opinion, propaganda, pseudo-events, and
outright lies as news. With the depth of historical background for which
his books are renowned, Levin takes the reader on a journey through the
early American patriot press, which proudly promoted the principles set
forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, followed
by the early decades of the Republic during which newspapers around the
young country were open and transparent about their fierce allegiance
to one political party or the other. It was only at the start of the
Progressive Era and the twentieth century that the supposed "objectivity
of the press" first surfaced, leaving us where we are today: with a
partisan party-press overwhelmingly aligned with a political ideology
but hypocritically engaged in a massive untruth as to its real nature." Link to book information. https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=w2VGpneWfTE&offerid=189673.14783615888&type=2&murl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alibris.com%2Fsearch%2Fbooks%2Fisbn%2F9781476773094 .
High Crimes and Misdemeanors: A History of Impeachment for the Age of Trump.
Frank O Bowman III For the third time in forty-five years, the USA talks about
impeaching a president, this time its based on "Impeachment on a whim" rather than high crimes and misdemeanors. Full Story here: http://boomerspeaks.com/390804/index.html . "The impeachment provisions of the American
constitution are widely misunderstood. In High Crimes and Misdemeanors,
constitutional scholar Frank O. Bowman, III offers unprecedented clarity
to the question of impeachment, tracing its roots to medieval England
through its adoption in the Constitution and 250 years of American
experience. By examining the human and political history of those who
have faced impeachment, Bowman demonstrates that the Framers intended
impeachment to be a flexible tool, adaptable to the needs of any age.
Written in a lively, engaging style, the book combines a deep historical
and constitutional analysis of the impeachment clauses, a coherent
theory of when impeachment should be used to protect constitutional
order against presidential misconduct, and a comprehensive presentation
of the case for and against impeachment of President Trump. It is an
indispensable work for the present moment." Link to book: https://click.linksynergy.com/link?id=w2VGpneWfTE&offerid=189673.15017294968&type=2&murl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alibris.com%2Fsearch%2Fbooks%2Fisbn%2F9781108481052 .
