USAToday lists "Collusion" by Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and Director of Media Analysis Tim Graham as one of the five must-reads about the 2012 election.

"Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election" had previously hit number one in its category on

The book details the disparity of treatment media gave Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

For example, the book details how, while the media were cheering the heyday of the "Occupy" movement, they suppressed news of two Occupy protests of posh fundraisers attended by President Obama.

And, despite enjoying the company of (and funding from) Hollywood's biggest names in some of the most luxurious settings, President Obama continued to be portrayed as "populist" by a supportive media, Brent Bozell explains.

Media not only refused to report on Obama's exploits with Hollywood's "one-percenters," they shamelessly portrayed Obama as an everyday guy, Bozell notes in the chapter "Barack 'Hollywood' Obama":

"What really took chutzpah was the other half of the equation: boosting Barack Obama as a populist as he hobnobbed with the richest and most famous elites in Hollywood. Anonymous rich people make better villains than some of the most beloved names in show business."

"Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election," published by HarperCollins, was co-authored by Media Research Center Director of Media Analysis Tim Graham.

Editor's Note: Brent Bozell is president of the Media Research Center, of which is a division.
