    "More conservatives need to hone their creative skills. We need fewer conservative lawyers and more conservative writers, directors, and producers. More conservatives need to dedicate their lives to entertaining others."A very good look at how liberalism has shaped and warped and twisted media and completely taken over the TV industry, and how conservatives can recognize and change that.

    I expected the author of Primetime Propaganda to rail against the obvious left and far-left agenda of network television programming. Instead, Ben Shapiro presents a pretty fair history and analysis of the entertainment side of network TV and many of the key personalities involved. While some of his views are debatable, his key points are confirmed by his many interviews with key industry players.A few of his main points are:* The primary originators of network TV (Paley, Sarnoff, Goldenson) and [...]

    Primetime Propaganda by Ben Shapiro surprised me because when I heard that it was written by a conservative columnist, I was expecting this venomous, hate filled, ideological rant against the admittedly quite liberal television industry.What I actually got was a rational and fairly even handed approach towards the television industry that spoke to the creators and consumers of television from the 1950's through today and he discovered that yes many of them are liberal, but that the injection of [...]

    This book is meticulously researched by Mr. Shapiro. He spoke to countless TV producers and writers and went back to the beginnings of TV to the present, presenting hard evidence how TV shows have become more liberal over the years. He also covers many specific television shows and how writers consciously establish their liberal views into the shows they write. It's an interesting book and I do not disagree that Hollywood is basically a "small community" of liberals that close ranks on political [...]

    This is an excellent and objective look at the liberal Hollywood culture and how it dominates television. As a result of this domination of the television entertainment industry, liberalism presents a one-sided and often heavy handed view of American cultural values. This has, over 50+ years, greatly influenced American values. I recommend this book, not because it indicts the Right or Left, but because everyone needs to be cognizant of the powerful and often subtle messages that bombard viewers [...]

    I'm actually kind of surprised I finished this, given how liberal I am. I guess it's a testament to Ben Shapiro's writing style and his (often) reasonable arguments. I agree with Shapiro that TV is mostly liberal, and conservatives are often treated badly in Hollywood. But the main things Shapiro rails against, I see as great progress. For instance, the presence of gay and Muslim characters on television. Not too long ago, people couldn't even fathom watching black people on their TVs, let alone [...]

    While this book is well researched, it is less well balanced and more of a diatribe against the liberal influence in television and motion pictures. Given the nature of the creative beast, writers will tend to be young, liberal and often Jewish. Yet as Shapiro points out at the end of the book, television “is still a business, and money talks.”Having spent 40+ years working in television media, I can report that advertisers are not the rubes that Shapiro paints them to be. The medium is numb [...]

    The television industry is one that interests me as it is a social tool that constantly permeates our society. Every day we sit in front of the television to catch the evening news or the latest episode of our favourite sitcoms, dramas or reality shows.Ben Shapiro does an excellent job of gathering an extensive amount of interviews with many of the movers and shakers in Hollywood such as Marcey Carsey, Carlton Cuse, Fred Silverman and others. Through the admissions of these influential Hollywood [...]

    This is the sort of book that wouldn't have been as good if anyone other than Ben Shapiro had written it. First of all, Ben clearly loves the TV industry, and is not writing this book as a right winger trying to rally the nation against liberal hollywood. He is legitimately trying to improve telavision for both liberals and conservatives. He was really able to move the debate to the next level. There have been many books or articles on trying to prove hollywood is liberal. And he does include ma [...]

    Over the years I had realized that like most of media, TV leaned to the left, but I had no idea to what extent since my TV viewing diminished greatly as an adult. This information comes directly from the people who wrote and directed these programs. Even my childhood favorite, "Sesame Street" is not excluded from the left's influences. It espouses diversity as the new self esteem and embraces liberal lifestyles while neglecting to teach kids patriotism or traditional values. Their political bias [...]

    It really opens up my eyes. this book is filled with many shocking revelations of how the leftists have television industry firmly in their hands. I guess I'll stick with books instead, rather than watching tv, which is riddled by leftists' and liberals' leanings.

    Jonathas Torres
    Such a well researched book, it covers so much on the subject of politics oriented television. There are a lot of high points on the book, one in particular for me was the link in pages 238-239 the left oriented TV had with the Frankfurt school, it was like an aha i knew it moment.

    Eric Keith
    Enjoyable book. It gets a bit heavy in industry talk but does a nice job of breaking down certain areas of the TV industry. You can't argue that liberalism is more prevalent than any other viewpoint in television. I do enjoy the author's call to arms to conservatives to take back tv.

    Jocelin
    This was an interesting book. I felt like a lot of this information was déjà vu. I got a chance to see Ben Shapiro on Book TV and he touch on a great deal of the subjects that he mentioned in this book. I think this book could have been a lot shorter by about 100 pages.

    Mari
    Really excellent, and well researched. I found this to be extremely believable, and now understand why conservative writers, the number of whom grows, and grows are silenced. It will take a long time before we reverse this problem.

    Vic
    Amazing to hear in their own words how producers etc are pushing their largely liberal, often anti family agenda. Lots of info, moved a little slow after a while.

    Shapiro does an excellent job at showing how Hollywood productions these days are skewed leftist and also gives an explanation as to how this came into being. He gives an exhaustive overview on how through the decades, tv-shows contained political messaging, some shows more obviously and other shows more covertly. It was exaclty this overview that made me take weeks to read this book, I do not even know if anyone reads my reviews but if you are interested: Do not commit yourself to reading this [...]

    I have mixed feelings about this book. I can understand being upset because your side of the story isn't being told, wanting less sex and violence on TV (especially when you have to worry that your kids are watching), and being banned from work in the industry. At the same time though, I believe that we should learn to get along and accept people as they are and that's it's ok to show this on TV. This seemed to be a big issue in this book. You may not agree with a value but that doesn't mean you [...]

    Laura
    Truthfully not my favorite of Ben Shapiro's books.While admittedly very thoroughly researched, and certainly full of justified criticism of Hollywood and the television industry, I also found much of it very skippable. It just got unnecessarily long-winded to me. I did not need, for example, a complete resume and backstory for every single writer/producer/actor/key-grip involved in the making of these shows. I honestly couldn't care less WHY they were liberal, or HOW they became so. Nor did I ca [...]

    No surprises in the book. I guess I was lucky, my Dad would not allow a tv in the house and this was in 1950 to 1968 when I went to Vietnam. So I can't reply to any of the shows during this period. After 1975 with a family, I did watch some tv but not that much, I remember my family watching Dallas, All in the Family and Little House on the Prairie. All in the Family, I thought Archie gave as much as he got in the first year or two before the show became too liberal for me to watch. I turned the [...]

    A amazing novel it gave me flashbacks to a interview done in the later part of the eighties with a former KGB operative (Yuri Bezmenov) explaining how espionage wasn't the intended goal but cultural subversion through popular American culture and how leftism would be spread by popular culture and the education system.

    Anna
    Covered an important topic, but I think I would've enjoyed it more if it had been less of an overview of the television industry over the past hundred years. It seemed like the first eight chapters were diagnosing the problem, and only the (brief) final chapter talked about what we could do about it.

    John Waldrip
    This is a truly marvelous read, well researched and informative. I think this is a musty read for every pastor who seeks understanding of how the present culture came to be through the medium of television. Shapiro has done his homework as few authors have been in a position to do it. Give a copy of this book to your pastor and plead with him to read it.

    Neil Mcalpine
    Insightful look inside liberal Hollywood and some good analysis on the liberal messaging coming out of some of the most popular shows on TV. Surprisingly evenhanded considering how conservative the author is known to be.

    BertHopkins
    Excellent book about the pervasive nature of how the left has been dragging America to the left on so many issues. It began over 60 years ago and has not abated. Issues such as gay rights, same-sex marriage, abortion, war, patriotism and many other critical topics are addressed by Ben!

    Mary Sasala
    This is my first Shapiro book. He is immensely talented and knows his arguments. I am not sure if I bought all his arguments. It gives a very different perspective on the television industry.

    Sean McGowan
    Very informative. Shapiro does a fine job in this book.

    Jonathan Brickman
    Seventy years of brainwashing, documented most carefully. Thank you, Mr. Shapiro!

    A Pop Culture Wonk Exegetes Pop Culture's Political Messaging in Television.In an interview with CSPAN's BookTV, Ben Shapiro, described "Primetime Propaganda" as his most-thoroughly researched book. This was the impetus for buying this book.This book is indeed highly researched. The most interesting forms of research were the interviews Shapiro conducted with the power players of the entertainment industry. These contained the nuggets that best supported his thesis regarding the lopsided politic [...]
