    Mikey says: "OK news marred by sloppy recording"
    "First rate program"
    Overall

    Typical for those that don't like this gem of a program for their incorrect assumption of liberal bias simply to lob derogatory adjectives. Fitting in fact. This program is balanced to a degree that is extremely hard to find in American, corporate led media outlets, and therefore it's obvious difference in constituency (general public, rather than corporate advertisers) will be mislabeled by those that simply do not know the difference. When you have never heard a balanced view, your opinion will obviously be skewed. This is an indispensable show that allows the listener to form it's own opinion, for once, by allowing lengthy discussion and review which is yet another facet grossly lacking in typical American, fast fed, sensationalistic, ratings grabbing corporate media outlets. Do yourself a favor, and let them let YOU inform yourself for a change.

    In their second book on our current White House occupant, Ivins and Dubose take the wire brush to the Bush presidency and show how he has applied the same flawed strategies he used in governing Texas to running the largest superpower in the world.

    Native Texan says: "Richly informative & entertaining..."
    "Insightful, resourceful and witty."
    Overall

    I found that her explicit resources backed her facts quite well. Given in her own voice adds to the feeling of sincerity that is also enjoyable to listen to. Her wit and fervor are a fresh aside from the usual "name-calling" and ideological, faith based reasonings that you may find prevalent in some other titles that seem to step away from the harsh realities that we, living in a polyarchy should discuss with proper analysis.
