With her trademark passion, intelligence, and devastating
wit, Huffington Post editor in chief Arianna Huffington
tackles the issues that are crucial to this year’s
presidential election and, even more so, to the fate of the
Huffington makes the case that America has been hijacked
from within by a radical element—the “lunatic fringe” of the
Right that has taken over the Republican Party. Despite
holding views at odds with the majority of Americans, these
zealots have given us an endless war in Iraq, a sputtering
economy, a health care system on life support, a war on
science and reason, and an immoral embrace of torture.
But they haven’t done it on their own: they have been
enabled by a compliant media that act as if there is no such
thing as truth and are more interested in cozying up to
those in power than in holding them accountable, and by
feckless Democrats who have allowed themselves to be
intimidated into backing down again and again.
Both a withering indictment and a hopeful call to arms,
Right Is Wrong is an explosive, boldly incisive work that
will help set the national agenda.
