Writing with his characteristic and incisive wit, Press exposes the destructive power of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Bill O''Reilly, and the other polarizing figures of talk radio who dominate 90 percent of the political airwaves today.
From the Publisher:
A cautionary report on the disproportional influence of the far-right media on major syndicates presents examples of potentially harmful partisan ideas supported by such figures as Glenn Beck, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh. By the author of How the Republicans Stole Religion.
Liberal journalist Bill Press offers both an informed survey and a scathing critique of conservative talk radio--accusing many hosts of crossing lines of decency, and charging that, overall, the rhetoric presented on conservative talk radio has debased both the language and the political process. Acknowledging that liberal talk radio has never been able to match the energy and rhetorical thrust of conservative radio, Press cites examples such as Michael Savage or Rush Limbaugh as radical right hosts who go for the lowest common denominator, and who, he says, will stoop pretty low--to half-truths (or less) and even outright lies. For those who may never have tuned in to this much-listened to segment of the media, Press has clearly done the legwork--painful as it must have been for him.
