At the risk of giving away the ending: It's all liberals' fault. Cultlike in their behavior, vicious in their attacks on Republicans, and in almost complete control of mainstream national media, the left has been merciless in portraying all conservatives as dumb, racist, power hungry, homophobic, and downright scary. This despite the many Republican accomplishments of the last few decades, as well as the Bush administration's expert handling of the country's affairs in the wake of the worst attacks on American soil and of the war that followed.
With incisive reasoning and meticulous research, Ann Coulter examines the events and personalities that have shaped modern political discourse. She demonstrates how the media, especially, are biased - and usually wrongheaded - and have done all in their power to obfuscate the issues and the people behind them, bending over backward to villainize and belittle the right, while rarely missing an opportunity to praise the left.
Refreshingly honest and unerringly timely, Slander continues where Bernard Goldberg's number one best selling Bias left off.

I would not accept Ms. Coulter's research as accurate until you've had a chance to listen to Al Franken's latest book "Liars, and the Lying Liars that Tell Them". You'll see that her so-called endnotes have been researched separately and are nothing more than texts taken out of context. Anyone can spin Lexus-Nexus searches to mean anything they want. Did just a little deeper, and you will see the house of cards that make up her stance.
Seriously, I loved this book. Ann Coulter lifts up the rock that Leftist lies and hypocrisy hide under and the little bugs go scurrying. She points out the incredulous things the Left feed to us that most people don't take the time to really think about. She blows away the left's emotional caterwauling with cold, hard facts and keen insight. And, to top it all off, she has a great sense of humor. If you have the guts to listen to this book, YOU WILL LEARN SOMETHING!
I thought that this author was supposed to be one of the best conservative writers, but she is really unChristian and full of hate. She does not support any conservative ideas that I can see. She only only tries to build herself up by putting others down in vile and disgusting ways

Right off the bat I have to say I do find AnnCoulter entertaining around the's standpoint of an individual who has only bread one book prior to this of hers. Let I'm going to say first about this book is which was written in the review which is I believe the first review on Amazon.com under the hardcover edition. Is in Coulter goes right after Gloria Steinem and a section of the book . Saying that the only reason her magazine stayed afloat. Jimmy was very hypocritical and was the tea pot calling the kettle black . Look at AnnCoulter . Her face is changed so much from this book is 2002 from Trump withdraws . Where she's obviously had a nose job in plastic surgery and Botox to make sure her face is pretty and she's obviously using her looks to sell her books . Along with an egocentric sometimes sensationalize facts, with not a lot findings to back up the information she is spouting off in her books . Watch her books are entertaining sometimes but… The language she uses in them i.e. terms are offensive especially when you are falling under one of the terms she's describing you as an you took the money and bought this audiobook to listen to while you did the immersion reading with Kindle book . She lives in the world or at least speaks in the world with terms that are completely outdated and offensive that have not been used in 30 to 40 years . Especially using the word cripples , blacks , and other politically incorrect term like that I think she should be smart enough as a lawyer to know that they are not acceptable to use this day and age and honestly think about what she says or at least be changing how she says it before speaking it or I should say writing it. That being said I didn't find her to be very intelligent I thought this book is very well-written I don't really want to talk to much about the book because I hate when people spoil things in the reviews . I gave the book what I thought would be a fair rating I really like the point of view for the most part I just pointed about when I didn't like it. I gave the performance/narration five stars , the story restarts because I thought certain things were way mean-spirited at times which is why the overall rating was three stars for would've gotten a higher rating like her book "Mugged" and ¡Adios America! I cave each for stars or overall and 5 Stars, For narration.
That it was an unabridged edition of the book with the author. Because the full version of the book has a different narrator . So this is the only reason why I purchased this edition other than that I got nothing else to say
Everyone of her books is a follow-up book to her last book . That being said I probably will be reading the next book because I am working on a dissection of this woman for my YouTube channel .
I guess you could say I fall somewhere in the middle . I am neither left nor right I kind of agree with that little bit of both sides . Like another reviewer said if I was to call anybody I guess I would say independent except independent so never make it anywhere. However I find you have to force yourself to get through her stuff . Myself being disabled physically, founded a very bitter pill to swallow listening to her talk about things that she doesn't understand Lornas not a thing about when it comes to being on Medicaid or Medicare /welfare. Or living with disability and I guess you could say listening to her old school views is ridiculous at times , because she boxes everyone . When people do not think inboxes not everyone that is Spanish is a criminal , same goes with the Muslims community , I hate how she always refers to work so as white because there is no such thing as "white " . She is Caucasian , which means her ancestory i.e. heritage is made up of many different nationalities , and it makes her sound like a bigot . Watching her on TV I found her entertaining I find her very smart I find her very interesting but because she is a lawyer she has to always be right even when she's wrong . I understand that I can accept that . However I do not like people who put down other people can make themselves feel better or to put themselves up on a pedestal . Like I said I like her book Mugged,, and her last book. And the one about the Clinton impeachment .
Ann Coulter delivers a hot rendition of right wing rhetoric in Slander. While certainly not a deep discussion of the media, she does provide an outrageously charged version of right wing paranoia. This will be an extremely entertaining listen for those disposed to see a media conspiracy in every story or see liberals as putting their agenda above every immoral act possible. Anne certainly does not give a balanced view of right wing / left wing smearing, but that was very much to be expected.
I was wary of this book - I consider myself a moderate (most definitely socially, if not economically) and listened to Al Franken's 'Lies' just prior to this. Franken spends half the book accusing Coulter of being both a liar and a lunatic. Thankfully I decided to give this book a chance.
Al Franken is perhaps a BIT (although not much) funnier than Ann but Slander is a MUCH better book. And unlike Franken's, this book does NOT stoop to the level of personal attacks and unjustified invective.
It's not surprising the hard-core liberals choose to slam this book. But if you've got an even slightly open mind, I suggest you give it a chance and take a listen. Like me, you may find yourself (very) pleasantly surprised.
Put plain and simple, Ms. Coulter's expose' of the heavily left wing biased media smacks of the truth...right where it hurts...in the written and now spoken word.
I can finally put away my sleeping pills...This book was nearly impossible to get through. I kept waiting for her to make a quantifiable claim about all of these supposed "liberal lies." Instead she spends all of her time calling people names, specifically liberals... She really does her cause a disservice by getting published. Don't waste your money and moreso your time listening to this book.
In her book, Ann Coulter confirms everything that most conservatives are afraid of. If you're a liberal and you claim that this book is biased after reading it, you really are an idiot. Ann Coulter very rarely cites an opinion. It's fact after fact after fact, all proving how ridiculously slanted the media really is, and how they hide from that fact with the kindergarten favorite, "I know you are but what am I?"
Strong Liberals: don't bother. Just point, laugh, & keep being an idiot.
Conservatives & questioning Liberals: You need to read this book and start paying attention to the country. I'm looking at things a lot more closely now. I'm also reading 'Treason' right now.
Well written--and just as well read by the author. Ann sees things and describes them in a way that is both funny and insightful. It's amazing how many of her insights are so apt. It's like she has outlined liberal talking points--which are still being used on a daily basis. If you're on the right, you will want to see those talking points skewered. If you're on the left, you will want to understand their vulnerabilities. And all is done in a way that's very entertaining. You might find yourself laughing out loud a lot at her wit. This audiobook won't put you to sleep.
