This week on CounterSpin: a special conversation with two authors who have been producing some of the sharpest criticism of the political and media establishment during the Bush years. Arianna Huffington is founder of the Huffington Post website and author of numerous books. Her most recent is Right is Wrong: How the Lunatic Fringe Hijacked America, Shredded the Constitution, and Made Us All Less Safe. Glenn Greenwald writes a popular Unclaimed Territory blog at Salon.com. His new book is Great American Hypocrites: Toppling the Big Myths of Republican Politics. Today we'll be joined by both of them to talk about the big myths of right-wing politics, and the media's role in sustaining and embellishing those myths. We'll also hear their thoughts about the election season. All that on a special edition of CounterSpin.
