Al Franken's wildly popular (thanks to Bill O'Reilly) book is a humorous look at the left-wing media bias we've all heard so much about. Turns out it's a myth, and Franken tells us why. From the 2000 election to Clinton's failure to accept Osama Bin Laden on a silver platter before 9/11, Franken details (not surprisingly) the lies and the lying liars who tell them.
It could be a mechanical tool, methodically debunking left and right (well, right, actually), but Franken uses his years of comedy experience to make it entertaining, peppering it with amusing, sometimes self-deprecating humor and anecdotes.
This is a must-read for any liberal beset on all sides by conservative co-workers and relatives. The paperback edition upgrades the book to a handy reference manual by adding a convenient index, as well as more juicy tidbits on Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter (what's wrong with her, anyway?). If you enjoy this book, do yourself a favor and buy a copy of the Grammy-winning audiobook version. If you can't afford it because you're still waiting for Bush's tax cut to trickle down to you, you might be able to find a copy at your local library.
