The biggest story of the election was how the media ignored the biggest story of the election. Amid all the breathless coverage of a nonexistent war on women, there was little or no coverage of Obama's war on the economy - how, for instance, part-time work is replacing full-time work, how low-wage jobs are replacing high-wage ones, how for Americans between the ages of 25 and 54 there are fewer jobs today than there were when the recession officially ended in 2009, and fewer, in fact, than at any time since mid-1997. The downsizing of the American economy wasn't the only story the media missed - or suppressed - there was also the unraveling of Obama's foreign policy and the deadly scandals at home (Fast and Furious) and abroad (the terrorist attack that killed the American ambassador at Benghazi). But instead of serious, substantive journalism, the media reported ad nauseam on trifles (Big Bird), Republican-baiting hysteria (how everything the Republicans said was allegedly "racial code"), and distortions of Romney's remarks (such as the "47 percent" comment). The media dropped the ball in covering the 2012 election, says David Freddoso, editorial page editor of the Washington Examiner, and in doing so, the media failed in their responsibility to keep politicians honest and the public well-informed. Freddoso, a New York Times best-selling author and former congressional reporter for National Review, fills this volume not only with outrageous examples of media bias but also with dozens of real stories that genuinely inquisitive reporters should have relished but that the overwhelmingly liberal press didn't even bother to cover. Full of the news you didn't hear about in 2012, David Freddoso's Spin Masters: How the Media Ignored the Real News and Helped Reelect Barack Obama will be the most provocative and accurate take of just how Barack Obama managed to get reelected amid the worst e 1.

This extraordinary narrative offers a fresh perspective on the Underground Railroad as it traces the perilous journeys of fugitive ex-slaves from the United States to free black settlements in Canada. The Underground Railroad was the passage to freedom for many slaves, but it was rife with dangers. There were dedicated conductors and safe houses, but also arduous nights in the mountains and days in threatening towns. For those who made it to Midnight (the code name given to Detroit), the Detroit River became a River Jordan and Canada became their land of Canaan - the Promised Land where they could live freely in black settlements under the protection of British law. One of those settlements was known as Dawn.In prose rich in detail and imagery, From Midnight to Dawn presents compelling portraits of the men and women who established the Railroad, and of the people who traveled it to find new lives in Canada. Some of the figures are well known, like Harriet Tubman and John Brown. But there are equally heroic, less familiar figures here as well, like Mary Ann Shadd, who became the first black female newspaper editor in North America, and Osborne Perry Anderson, the only black survivor of the fighting at Harpers Ferry. From Midnight to Dawn evokes the turmoil and controversies of the time, reveals the compelling stories behind events such as Harpers Ferry and the Christian Resistance, and introduces the reader to the real-life "Uncle Tom" who influenced Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin.An extraordinary examination of a part of American history that transcends national borders, From Midnight to Dawn will captivate listeners with its tales of hope, courage, and a people's determination to live as equals under the law. 1.

The goal of this book is to put an array of tools at the fingertips of students, practitioners, and researchers by explaining approaches long used by survey statisticians, illustrating how existing software can be used to solve survey problems, and developing some specialized software where needed. This volume serves at least three audiences: (1) students of applied sampling techniques, 2) practicing survey statisticians applying concepts learned in theoretical or applied sampling courses, and (3) social scientists and other survey practitioners who design, select, and weight survey samples.The text thoroughly covers fundamental aspects of survey sampling, such as sample size calculation (with examples for both single- and multi-stage sample design) and weight computation, accompanied by software examples to facilitate implementation. Features include step-by-step instructions for calculating survey weights, extensive real-world examples and applications, and representative programming code in R, SAS, and other packages.Since the publication of the first edition in 2013, there have been important developments in making inferences from nonprobability samples, in address-based sampling (ABS), and in the application of machine learning techniques for survey estimation. New to this revised and expanded edition:- Details on new functions in the PracTools package- Additional machine learning methods to form weighting classes- New coverage of nonlinear optimization algorithms for sample allocation- Reflecting effects of multiple weighting steps (nonresponse and calibration) on standard errors- A new chapter on nonprobability sampling- Additional examples, exercises, and updated references throughoutRichard Valliant, PhD, is Research Professor Emeritus at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan and at the Joint Program in Survey Methodology at the University of Maryland.
