What occurred to the harmony that so blessed the US after 9-11? the place did our experience of decision cross?
Our political, journalistic, and cultural leaders have fixed a crusade to oppose and bog down the struggle on terror that appeared so very important in that infrequent second of readability. This booklet is my own cri du coeur approximately deception in politics, journalism, and enterprise -- in particular whilst it stops us from following via at the paintings Sept. 11 has left for us all to do.
This e-book takes on a few lovely sacred cows, yet it's approximately time they turned reasonable video game. --from the advent
Are you appalled by way of the antiwar tone the inside track media has taken because the warfare on terror all started -- particularly "objective" information shops just like the New York Times and the community information?
Are you brooding about while liberal celebrities like Barbara Streisand, Sean Penn, and Susan Sarandon unexpectedly turned geopolitical oracles whose recommendation we're purported to price above the knowledge of tenured specialists?
Are you at a loss to choose who has betrayed us extra outrageously: the French who deserted us in our time of want, or our personal elected officers, who tapped our 401(k) rate reductions and the tobacco-settlement providence with equivalent abandon?
In Off with Their Heads, syndicated columnist and Fox information Cannel political analyst Dick Morris issues an accusing finger on the some ways the general public has been lied to and misled, pickpocketed and endangered. no matter if it's invoice Clinton, who neglected mounting facts of imminent terrorist disaster through the Nineties, or the contributors of Congress, who quietly offered our democracy down the river in trade for lifetime incumbency, Morris rips the canopy off the cowardly and duplicitous figures who've sacrificed America's pursuits for his or her personal.
From inner most corruption to public treachery, even longtime political buffs will wonder on the amazing habit Morris finds at each point of society -- and at the way it threatens to compromise the yank lifestyle.

We have learned not to believe our news organizations, because we finally have the ability to watch something we were never meant to see: actual events as they're really happening, side by side with the spin the news organizations put on them. Never before has the American public had the opportunity to watch and read the reports of the establishment news media at the very hour that the events themselves were unfolding in front of them live on television. Their collective understanding of the dissonance between the two is breeding a distrust of the major news organs-the broadcast networks and the major newspapersthat will probably long outlast the war.
Then we all looked up from our morning paper to see television correspondents actually embedded with our troops, reporting quick advances, one-sided firefights, melting opposition, and, finally, welcoming crowds. Then the television would cut back to the anchors and military analysts far from the battlefield. There, with their pointers and maps, we heard all about how we had too few troops in Iraq, and how the war plan had misfired, and how Bush's failure to enlist Turkish cooperation was likely to prove disastrous.
In September and early October, the Times pressed Bush to submit his case for invading Iraq, first to Congress and then to the United Nations. Hoping to slow down what the paper saw as the administration's rush to war, the newspaper claimed that its surveys showed that Americans shared its point of view. Ignoring the evident widespread support for the Bush position, it chipped away through loaded questions to try to build a case against immediate American action. Its surveys, and the way they were reported in the newspaper, exerted a great influence on opinion leaders, rallying top Democrats to an antiwar stand.
