4.0 étoiles sur 5 It's about the lies, Sept. 5 2003
Every true American patriot should read Al Franken's most recent book. Honest, informed debate is the cornerstone of a healthy democracy. "Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell Them" opens the window to allow the fresh air of truth into public discussion. The book is not about conservative versus liberal. It is primarily about absolutes: lies and truths. A conservative like John McCain would find Franken's book to be a welcome bit of honesty given the current media climate. Many Americans have been misled to think that broadcast journalism is some hodgepodge of entertainment, opinions, selective man-on-the-street interviews, and slivers of facts delivered by videogenic models with the personalities of malicious frat boys. Mr. Franken's book dissects the "lie machine" and it is about time. Fortunately, the sales indicate it's not too late for truth reclamation. I do regret that Mr. Franken did not include the chapter he was working on about how chummy the Bushes are with the bin Ladens. One more thing - it's very, very funny. I am quite grateful that Mr. Franken did not follow in the footsteps of his fellow Lampoon alums, content to change nothing in the world, collecting checks to write unproduced scripts.
