BREAKING THE NEWS: EXPOSING THE ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA’S HIDDEN DEALS AND SECRET CORRUPTION, by Alex Marlow  (Author)

Publisher: Threshold Editions (May 18, 2021) 

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From the editor in chief of Breitbart News , a firsthand account of how the establishment media became weaponized against Donald Trump and his supporters on behalf of the political left.

Alex Marlow was just a twenty-one-year-old UC Berkeley student when renowned media mogul Andrew Breitbart hired him as his first employee. Breitbart began mentoring Marlow on how to fight the culture war one headline at a time and to remain resilient in the face of personal attacks. Now, in this eye-opening and timely book, Marlow explains how the establishment press destroyed its own credibility with a relentless stream of “fake news” designed to smear Donald Trump and his supporters while advancing a leftist agenda. He also reveals key details on how our information gatekeepers truly operate and why America’s “fake news” moment might never end. Breitbart — and Trump — began banging the drum about “fake news” during the 2016 election, and it resonated with millions of voters because they intuitively knew the corporate media was willing to say or write anything to achieve their political ends. It’s a battle cry that continues to this day. Alex and his team of researchers elucidate the stunning details of the key “fake news” moments of the Trump era and take a deep dive into some of the right’s favorite media targets: from Bloomberg, CNN, The Washington Post , and The New York Times to the tech elite in Silicon Valley. Deeply researched and eye-opening, Breaking the Newsrips back the curtain on the inner workings of how the establishment media weaponizes information to achieve their political and cultural ends. Alexander Marlow is editor in chief of the  Breitbart News Network , a position he has held since he was twenty-seven years old. He has been on the cover of  Time  and  Newsweek , named in  Forbes  30 Under 30, and called “perhaps the most significant media figure in America.” He also hosts the flagship radio show  Breitbart News Daily  on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel.

THE PRICE WE PAY: WHAT BROKE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE – AND HOW TO FIX IT, by Marty Makary MD MD MD (Author)

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing (September 1, 2019)

One in five Americans now has medical debt in collections and rising health care costs today threaten every small business in America. Dr. Makary, one of the nation’s leading health care experts, travels across America and details why health care has become a bubble. Drawing from on-the-ground stories, his research, and his own experience, The Price We Paypaints a vivid picture of the business of medicine and its elusive money games in need of a serious shake-up. Dr. Makary shows how so much of health care spending goes to things that have nothing to do with health and what you can do about it. Dr. Makary challenges the medical establishment to remember medicine’s noble heritage of caring for people when they are vulnerable. The Price We Pay offers a road map for everyday Americans and business leaders to get a better deal on their health care, and profiles the disruptors who are innovating medical care. The movement to restore medicine to its mission, Makary argues, is alive and well ― a mission that can rebuild the public trust and save our country from the crushing cost of health care.
