Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Al Franken, one of our ?savviest satirists? (People), 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. Using the Right's own words against them, he takes on the pundits, the politicians, and the issues, in the most talked about book of the year.

Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always funny, Lies sticks it to the most right-wing administration in memory, and to the right-wing media hacks who do its bidding.

Synopsis:

Humorous swipe at the right-wing power bases of the Bush administration and Murdoch's media empire. "An extraordinary mix of comic writing... and serious research into misinformation" Ian Hislop

Synopsis:

The No 1 international bestseller is now coming in mass-market paperback. Published to coincide with the US elections.
