This evening I will be talking about "Common Nonsense: Glenn Beck and the Triumph of Ignorance" with author Alexander Zaitchik on Progressive Book Club's Book Talk Radio. Anyone who read Zaitchik's original stories on Beck that appeared here knows that he has done remarkable reporting on the Fox News host, whose daily rants mislead and misinform millions. Among other things, I hope Zaitchik will explain why Beck cries more tears than my two toddlers.
Our discussion will begin at 8 p.m. EDT, with e-mail and call-in participation by listeners.
