Discussions about the media's role in politics have never seemed more important or more necessary. In a moment when casual consumers of media do not hesitate to make harsh critiques of the media's role in politics, many could benefit from an effort to make the discussion more grounded in social scientific principles. Adam Schiffer' s clear-eyed and informative review of bias in American political news sets out to do this by providing an accessible primer for anyone interested in thinking about the role of the press in politics in a more rigorous and even-handed way than might come naturally.
