Force, Fraud and Favors: Politics in America

Program #IVIM001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 08, 1992.

The political landscape of the United States is dotted with incongruities and contradictions. Most citizens are dissatisfied with their representatives be they in the State House or the White House. You don't need a Richter scale to measure the discontent. Journalist Molly Ivins has been monitoring the political pulse of the country for more than two decades. Her style is described as "pure Texas, to the point and with no bull."

Speaker(s):

Molly Ivins

Molly Ivins was a keen and trenchant observer of the American political scene. Her razor sharp wit and cogent writing generated legions of fans. Based in Austin, her nationally syndicated column appeared in more than three hundred newspapers. In addition to compilations of her brilliant, hilarious liberal columns, she wrote with Lou Dubose Shrub: The Short But Happy Political Life of George W. Bush and Bushwhacked: Life in George W. Bush's America. She was working on a book documenting the Bush administration's assault on the Bill of Rights when she died on January 31, 2007. She was a strong supporter of AR. We will miss her.
