POLITICS LOST How American Democracy Was Trivialized by People Who Think You're Stupid

by | Read by Terence McGovern

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Klein's premise--that American politics have been corrupted and dumbed-down by consultant- and pollster-driven campaigns--is laid out in accessible conversational detail. Terence McGovern's delivery is straightforward, perhaps to the point of being deadpan, but the listener won't miss a word or salient point. If the topic does not grab your attention, the narrator won't. But if you want a detailed litany of how elections have become more about media dissection of process and less about real issues of importance to voters, then you'll listen intently. Klein includes many interesting details of presidential campaigns since Truman '48, but the price is a somewhat loose train of thought.
