Bestselling author Gerry Spence takes dead aim at the conservative media hate-mongers: Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Nancy Grace, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson, and others. They occupy the bully pulpit of the new American hate culture, the television and radio shows watched and heard by millions of people that shape the opinions and set the agendas of churches, school boards, political action groups, and ultimately those we have elected to represent all of us.Using the full force of his own rhetorical skill—developed through decades as a legendary trial lawyer—Spence exposes the deepest and most troubling consequences of the language of hate. Anyone who is concerned about the direction America is taking will cheer to see these bullies met and conquered on their own turf.
