  • Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right

    Ann Coulter, "pundit extraordinaire," takes a hard look at modern political discourse. Refreshingly honest, unerringly timely, Coulter lashes into liberals and demonstrates how the media obfuscates the issues, belittles the right and praises the left. Her outspoken manner has made her one of the most fascinating women in politics, according to George magazine. Don't miss C-SPAN's Booknotes: Ann Coulter's Slander.

    "Incredible how lefties just won't accept the truth"
    Overall

    I am actually aghast at the fact that those who have negatively reviewed this tome have failed to see what she is talking about. The author provides clear, concise examples of overt bias in the media from the enablers, cheerleaders, and mouthpieces of the left, and backs up every claim she makes with some hard, verifiable evidence. Perhaps a well-reasoned response to these books, Treason and Slander, would be beneficial if someone feels that they could respond with a defensible position. However, I think that would be extremely difficult (read: impossible) because it extremely difficult to refute the evidence in this book. Most damning is the Alger Hiss information, in my opinion. Incredible the lengths that some would go to in order to protect their poster-child.

    One response to a negative review that I had read before purchasing these books (Slander & Treason; bought them together) about the author's use of Lexus-Nexus searches as evidence. It is necessary to use that when the topic you are researching is the media. Since one of the points of these books is that a blatant, left-leaning bias exists in the media and that it enables the Democrat party, she had to use examples from the media. One cannot write with research from Harvard and Yale regarding the media in this case because no supporting viewpoint could be published from such a place.

    My review stands as a stellar performance in both books. I recommend them together; what a pair!

    The year 1984 has come and gone, yet George Orwell's prophetic nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. 1984 is still the great modern classic of "Negative Utopia", a startlingly original and powerful novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing, from the first sentence to the last four words.

    "Hillary Clinton stars as big brother?"
    Overall

    I was not overly enthused about the narration of this audiobook. The work itself is highly imaginitive and intriguing, but it is extremely repetitive and I found myself saying "I know this already... move on... I'm bored." I know that some of that is for effect with the way the citizens of Oceania (the protagonist's country) are treated and how they live. However, you can only hear the same sentence so many times. I guess that, judging from the rave reviews and how this is supposed to be such a classic, I am committing thought crime! Overall, a great story. Just wish I had found an abridged version.

    Interestingly enough, the subject matter does taint how you view our modern political process. You will find that, after you have read/ listened to this book, you look at Big Brother in a different way. I can more readily spot him in modern political figures... Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Janet Reno, etc. With the thought police bursting through doors armed to the teeth, it made me think of the Elian Gonzalez struggle. Freaky!

    In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism.
