From his unique perspective as a leading commentator on national radio and television, Bill Press zeroes in on the major issues of the day. What will it take to turn the economy around? Is federal spending out of control? How will President Obama and a Republican House work together? What's really going on in North Africa, the Middle East, and Afghanistan? Press' analysis of the key challenges facing America today promises to be timely, factual, fair, and colorful—and is bound to spark lively discussion.
Based on his first book, Bill Press pokes fun at the wonderful world of spin. With insight and wit, he exposes the worst examples of political spin heard today from both Republicans and Democrats. But he also shows how spin colors every aspect of human behavior today, as practiced by preachers, salesmen, parents, lawyers, boyfriends and girlfriends.
A former seminarian with a degree in theology, as well as a radio/TV talk show host, Bill Press talks about one of the most important issues facing the nation: the intersection between faith and politics. Press argues that Republicans have "overdone" it, by making an unholy alliance with the religious right; but that Democrats have "underdone" it, by ignoring religion and appearing too secular. Referencing his acclaimed book, How the Republicans Stole Christmas, Press gives his formula for the correct mix of faith and politics.
