JOHN STAUBER -- talk & booksigning for "Banana Republicans: How the Right Wing is Turning America Into a One-Party State"
- Tuesday, May 25, 7 pm
@ The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco)
The U.S. economy is on the ropes, fear grips the nation, we are embroiled in two overseas military quagmires, and for the first time in living memory, a single party controls every major institution of the federal government - not to mention the mass media. How did this come to pass? John Stauber discusses "Banana Republicans," an analysis of how conservative forces are attempting to turn America into a one-party state.
John Stauber is founder and director of the Center for Media & Democracy. He and Sheldon Rampton write and edit the quarterly "PR Watch: Public Interest Reporting on the PR/Public Affairs Industry." They are the bestselling authors of "Weapons of Mass Deception," "Toxic Sludge is Good for You!," and "Trust Us, We're Experts!" In 2001, the National Council of Teachers of English gave Rampton and Stauber its annual George Orwell Award for exposing the use of doublespeak in American life.
