Al Franken has a clear political agenda, but that doesn’t stop the book being truly brilliant. The book details all kinds of ridiculous behaviour from the right wing media. Regardless of your political affiliations, it is just really funny.
Al Franken, one of our “savviest satirists”, has been studying the rhetoric of the Right. He has listened to their cries of “slander”, “bias”, and even “treason”. He has examined the Bush administration’s policies of squandering our surplus, ravaging the environment, and alienating the rest of the world. He’s even watched Fox News. A lot.
And, in this fair and balanced report, Al bravely and candidly exposes them all for what they are: liars. Lying, lying liars. Al destroys the liberal media bias myth by doing what his targets seem incapable of: getting his facts straight.
