The #1 New York Times bestseller by Senator Al Franken, author of Giant of the Senate
Al Franken, one of our âsavviest satiristsâ (People), has been studying the rhetoric of the Right. He has listened to their cries of âslander,â âbias,â and even âtreason.â He has examined the GOP's policies of squandering our surplus, ravaging the environment, and alienating the rest of the world.Â Heâs even watched Fox News.Â A lot.
And, in this fair and balanced report, Al bravely and candidly exposes them all for what they are: liars.Â Lying, lying liars.Â Al destroys the liberal media bias myth by doing what his targets seem incapable of: getting his facts straight. Using the Rightâs 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.
