Primetime Propaganda is the story 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, the conservative columnist and bestselling 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 to 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), 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. After hearing this groundbreaking exposé, listeners will never watch television the same way again.

In this thoroughly researched and detailed history of the television industry, the conservative columnist and bestselling 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 to promote the Democratic Party while actively discriminating against their opponents on the right.

Story

The lure of TV as the persuading machine.

Dealing with the TV industry, Mr. Shapiro, through the convincing voice of Chris Abell, brings to light for many that TV is mostly liberal in political preferences. Mr. Shapiro, however, doesn’t write like an off-the-rails conservative. Rather, his fact check approach, corroborated by the many interviews with the TV power-suits in Hollywood and New York, render this a most informative and interesting POV on what is and what might continue as the overriding liberal design of TV programming. Whether liberal or conservative, there is revelatory information in this exploration that will leave the listener pondering his or her own POV of TV’s impact.
