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.

"Ann Coulter is a pundit extraordinaire." (Rush Limbaugh)
"The conservative movement has found its diva." (Bill Maher)
There is not only something definitely wrong with Ann Coulter, there must be something wrong with the tens of thousands of rabid right-wingers who swallow this tripe. Save your money and time and spend it on a more balanced treatment of the American political scene.
Conservative hate mongering, one-sided nonsense. It would be nice if she stuck to facts and possibly used correct statistics to tease out some interesting information. Taking comments from several public figures out of context, making up stories and misquoting to serve her needs is the bread and butter of this audiobook. It is difficult to listen to her for long periods of time, maybe its the lisp and Lilith-like voice (remember the show Fraser?). Get your serving of politics elsewhere.
A fact filled analysis of media bias replete with well documented research. Of particular interest are the authors many references to lexus/nexus researh on specific characterizations of politicians from both the right and left. She has clearly put in the hours finding detailed and specific proof for her assertions.
If you're a conservative, you'll love it! If liberal, you'll call her a liar -- without listening to the facts. Ms. Coulter thoroughly dissects the "Press" and their biased news coverage. If you're looking for the facts to support your feeling that the network news never seems to get it right, this book is a "must-listen"!
Ahhh if only something lower than one star existed. This book is appropriately titled, although really it should be called "libel". It's a work of pure fiction, the "documentation" for which, when examined, proves to be entirely lacking. As with any work by Anne Coulter the reader is left to wonder if she is intentionally lying to act as a well paid hatchet-(wo)man, or if she's so far into the stratosphere that she believes her own swill. Beyond that little debate, nothing else in this book will interest anyone with even the most marginal intelligence or character.
If she is going to write a book, at least she could research what she saying and who she is referencing. I don't know if it is faulty research or possibly just trying to mislead the reader. Anyway, don't spend the money.
I am amazed at what gets into print (audio). Where did this lady come from, and who told her that she knows anything about politics/history/research/ANYTHING?!? Her "facts" are anything but, her arguments are inflamitory, and she flat out lies, assuming that the American public is just too stupid to verify her claims. Sadly, it appears that this is often the case. The best use of this book is as a case study of narcissism, delusion of grandeur, and possibly compulsive lying.
