...If you really want to understand how America's great and unique institution of a free press has been deliberately undermined by radical activists masquerading as journalists, backed by big business and encouraged by big government, you have to examine this phenomenon," says Farah, author of "Stop the Presses: The Inside Story of the New Media Revolution," hitting the nation's bookstores for official release today.

The Society of Environmental Journalists is one of the "activist pressure groups" Farah cites as working within the press to promote a political agenda under the guise of reporting the news.

The agenda for the next national conference, to be held in Stanford, Calif., in September, doesn't leave much doubt about where the organization stands on global warming...

..."Journalists are supposed to be skeptics," Farah reminds. "They are supposed to ask tough questions. They are supposed to seek the truth, not accept what passes for conventional wisdom. We might as well just get our environmental news from the Sierra Club as get it from an official, controlled press operating under the watchful eyes and ears of the Society of Environmental Journalists. And this is just one of several activist groups, heavily funded by corporate America, that police what we read, hear and see about the great issues of our time."...
