Format: Paperback
If you read this book with an open mind, you might learn something about poverty and politics in America. Glenn Beck has distorted and misrepresented Fox Piven's ideas to an audience, which is largely comprised of people who have no idea what Fox Piven's ideas are, and still they believe Beck without question. Glenn Beck is a symptom of what has gone wrong with mainstream media in America. If you want to find out what Americans can do about it, read Fox Piven's book and also read Debunking Glenn Beck: How to Save America from Media Pundits and Propagandists by Karl Rogers.

Defending her position however with a definite progressive bias . Author provides an informative and clear understanding of American Progressives explained by a Columbia University Professor. Seems to want ciaos in government and allow it to crash and then reorganize according to a progressive view of what our Country should be.
