From Media Matters

Dear Friend,

Every day, we at Media Matters for America work to debunk lies, expose extreme rhetoric and fight the hatred and misinformation coming from right-wing talk radio.

In Bill Press, we have a strong ally in this fight. In a terrific -- and important -- new book, Bill takes a close and extensive look at how right-wing talk radio distorts our political debate and misleads the country.

Bill's new book, Toxic Talk: How the Radical Right Has Poisoned America's Airwaves, documents the non-stop stream of vile, dangerous attacks and misinformation that emerge daily from right-wing radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage. Bill does the much-needed work of putting together the daily examples of false and violent rhetoric in a coherent narrative of the ways that right-wing radio undermines our political process.

Toxic Talk is a must-read -- and it reveals that right-wing radio is even worse than you might think.

Thanks again for your support of Media Matters for America and efforts to hold right-wing misleaders accountable.

I can't imagine how right-wing talk radio could be worse than I think...but then again, I think they will go as low as they can get away with.
