The Audacity of Myth: How the Media Ignored Obama’s Lies About His Own Biography and Memoir

[Excerpted from Collusion, by Brent Bozell and Tim Graham] The media’s sneakiest dirty trick in the book is bias by omission, because is is so hard to find, when journalists decide “what the people don’t know won’t hurt them,” or more precisely, “what the people don’t know won’t hurt our candidate.” In Barack Obama’s case this omission emerged in 2012 over his biographical narrative: his 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father, which became a huge bestseller as he prepared to run for president, and enriched him with an estimated $1.3 million in royalties (not to mention almost $4 million for his campaign book The Audacity of Hope), and that’s just through 2007.

It’s good to be reminded how media bias has become so blatantly obvious to those who take a little time to examine the facts.  Of course, today’s average American has been indoctrinated by government schools to the point that nearly all allegiance to Truth is considered "old fashioned" and irresponsible.

 

This steep decline in the general allegiance to truth is destroying what once was considered an unassailable virtue among the average American.  Now.. Not so much.
