9780340802977: 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America (And Al Franken Is #37)

Bernard Goldberg takes dead aim at the America Bashers (the cultural elites who look down their snobby noses at "ordinary" Americans and detest so much of what this country is about)...the Hollywood Blowhards (incredibly ditzy celebrities who think they're smart just because they're famous)...the TV Schlockmeisters (including the one whose show has been compared to a churning mass of maggots devouring rotten meat)...the Intellectual Thugs (big-wigs at some of our best colleges, whose views run the gamut from left-wing to far left-wing)...and many more.

Goldberg names names, profiling the villains in his rogues' gallery, one by one, from 100 down to 1 -- and yes, you-know-who is #37. But Goldberg doesn't just round up the usual suspects we have come to know and detest. He also exposes some of the people who operate away from the limelight but still manage to pull a lot of strings and do all sorts of harm to our culture.

100 People Who Are Screwing Up America is about a country where as long as anything goes, sooner or later everything will go.

From AudioFile:

The winner of eight Emmy Awards for his work as a news correspondent takes to task 100 people who he believes are muddying the integrity and morality of American society. While his voice is better suited for the newsroom, he makes his case with vocal agility and verbal cleverness. Goldberg takes pokes at celebrities like Michael Jackson and Michael Moore, politicians like Ted Kennedy and Howard Dean, activists, intellectuals, and television "Schlockmeisters." He also takes aim at former Louisiana State Rep and KKK leader David Duke, as well as Judge Roy Moore, who refused to remove the Ten Commandments from his Alabama courthouse. In all, this program is as thought provoking as it is rousing and entertaining. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
