About this title

Synopsis:

Streaming headlines, round-the-clock broadcasts--we live in a world of twenty-four hour news. But lately, most of what we read and hear is either negative, biased, or both. Cutting through the gloomy reports and liberal slant are Dennis Keegan and David West with their brand new book, Reality Check: The Unreported Good News About America. Contrary to what the cynical reporters and politicians say, Keegan and West prove that America is still a shining city on a hill, with a low unemployment rate, high GDP, and enviable democracy. These are not opinions, but facts--based on statistics that the media isn't reporting because of political agendas, industry competition, and limited resources. In Reality Check, Keegan and West cut through the bias and spin to reveal:
* How our twenty-four hour news culture gives us more inaccurate information, not less
* Why the U.S. economy is doing better than we realize
* Why the recent rhetoric and politics of change may do more harm than good

In this age of information saturation, the need to question and critically think about what we're reading and hearing is more important than ever. In Reality Check, Keegan and West show us how to be discerning consumers and why the news about America is much better than the media would have you believe.

From the Inside Flap:

Is America Really Past Her Prime?

The price of oil is skyrocketing. The housing market has collapsed--and so has the dollar. Every day brings a new story about how America's economy is about to sink--how the future belongs to the emerging economies of China and India. But guess what? America isn't on the brink of collapse. In fact, if anything, America's economy is poised for a resurgent future. If you thought the media were only telling you half the story, you were right. In their provocative new book, Reality Check: The Unreported Good News about America, authors Dennis Keegan and David West redress the media balance. In Reality Check you'll learn the facts the liberal media don't want you know. Did you know, for instance, that:

* since 2001 the U.S. economy's increase has been larger than the entire economy of China
* the federal deficit is lower now, as a percentage of the Gross Domestic Product, than it was during the 1990s, 1980s, and 1970s
* the real villain in high gas prices is taxes
* personal income has risen by 12.1 percent over the last seven years

and that's just scratching the surface. If you want to know the real state of the Union, Reality Check is essential reading.
