On his program today, Rush Limbaugh recommended that his listeners give Brent Bozell's new book, 'Collusion' to a liberal to read and learn how the media manipulate the public to create "mass assumptions."
"This is the kind of book that you give to a liberal and you cajole them into reading it. This is the kind of book you give to people who need to understand how they are being lied to; how they are being misinformed by an institution that they might trust," he said.
"How the media stole the 2012 election. This is a book that you need to read. You probably think you understand it, and most of you probably do," Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh praised the work of Bozell's Media Research Center:
"They do the absolute best job of anybody documenting (and they've done it for decades) the left-wing main stream media."
"This book contains what the Media Research Center does that nobody else does.
"And that is document, sound byte by sound byte, story by story, clip by clip, every claim that they're making. They prove it. Absolute, undeniable proof of every allegation they make."
Limbaugh said that the book contains important lessons on understanding how the media operate:
"I don't care if the polling data says journalists are lower on the totem pole of respect than anybody. They still are believed. They have subtle techniques of creating mass assumptions."
"And this book, 'Collusion,' it's about the 2012 election and how the media stole it and how they promulgated it; but in it there are lessons for how the media operates each and every day."
