Shapiro exposes: Primetime Propaganda

Featured at Breitbart this week and available from Amazon, Ben Shapiro exposes: Primetime Propaganda

Product description: "The inside story of how the most powerful medium of mass communication in human history has become a propaganda tool for the Left

Primetime Propaganda is the story—told in their own words—of how television has been used over the past sixty years by Hollywood writers, producers, actors, and executives to promote their liberal ideals, to push the envelope on social and political issues, and to shape America in their own leftist image.

In this thoroughly researched and detailed history of the television industry, conservative columnist and author Ben Shapiro argues that left-leaning entertainment kingpins in Los Angeles and New York have leveraged—and continue to use—their positions and power to push liberal messages and promote the Democratic Party while actively discriminating against their opponents on the right. According to Shapiro, television isn't just about entertainment—it's an attempt to convince Americans that the social, economic, and foreign policy shaped by leftism is morally righteous.

But don't take his word for it. Shapiro interviewed more than one hundred of the industry's biggest players, including Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H), Fred Silverman (former president of ABC Entertainment, NBC, and vice president of programming at CBS), Marta Kauffman (Friends), David Shore (House), and Mark Burnett (Survivor). Many of these insiders boast that not only is Hollywood biased against conservatives, but that many of the shows being broadcast have secret political messages. With this groundbreaking exposÉ, readers will never watch television the same way again."


  1. Hi Lisa, hope all is well in NZ.

    I've seen Shapiro do a couple of interviews recently to promote his book. He's an incredibly impressive young man. While he's done some great work with this book and other stuff he's written at Breitbart's Big, what really strikes me most about him is his willingness and ability to think independently. I mean the guy grew up in a family with ties to Hollywood, he's Jewish, and he's a Harvard Law grad. With that background, you'd think he would be a huge liberal. But he thinks for himself and he has rejected liberalism and embraced conservatism. Talk about swimming against the tide!!

    I'm glad he's on our side :-)

    Take care,
