    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "Easily the best produced audiobook I've heard"
    Overall

    Yeah, if you're hardcore Republican, you won't care about this, so go back to reading your Ann Coulter.
    I just wanted to point out my enjoyment of this audiobook, which is hands-down the best produced audiobook I've ever listened to. Not only does Al read the material himself, but he even takes the time to make revisions to the text by referencing that you're "listening" to an "audiobook" and not "turning pages" or "reading."
    It's a small distinction, but when listening to nonfiction, it is a nice change from some random guy reading another's opinion and telling you to look on page 50. Another great use of the audio format is Al's using actual clips of speeches (when available) instead of simply reading them himself. It's the extra effort that went into this production that really surprised me.
    As for the book - it's funny, it's factual, and I've yet to see anyone dispute a single word or fact stated in it. You be the judge, just try to listen to it before you review it - that's rare.
