    Story
    (258)

    Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way. In Righteous Indignation, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on.

    "A must for current events afficianados."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. He became a good sized fish in the pond, and died early. He will be missed.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


    Could you see Righteous Indignation being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    He is a bit of a stuffed shirt and self righteous. A bit more arrogant then he deserves.

    Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years - a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung and the unchallenged rise to power of his son, Kim Jong-il, and the devastation of a far-ranging famine that killed one-fifth of the population. Taking us into a landscape never before seen, Demick brings to life what it means to be an average Korean citizen, living under the most repressive totalitarian regime today.
