Funny rip into the conservatives who use lies to push their agenda.

This book was published in 2004. It's fun to read the book in 2023 to see whether what Al Franken wrote still resonates. ( )

"Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad and helping your loved one grow.”
― Al Franken, Lies & the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair & Balanced Look at the Right

4.5 stars.

I guess one's enjoyment of this depends on how much they like Al Franken.

This was the first book I’ve read by him and I found it to be a warm, human and utterly hilarious read. Al takes on FOX News in this this book, in particular Bill O’Reilly.

This book has a very interesting back story as supposedly Fox News sued Franken in court over the words "Fair and Balanced" which I find to be utterly hysterical. And yes it is discussed in the book.

I suppose I can see why conservatives might get pissed off at this book but even if you’re not an ultra liberal this does make for fun reading.

Franken brings up a lot of things that are really on point. George Bush was president when this came out. Franken brings his wit through the book, to be sure, but the thing is: lots of stuff in this book make so much sense. I loved his "Lawyer and the waitress" story.

I personally love reading political nonfiction books to get all viewpoints and I happen to be a fan of Franken. If you are seeking a good political Non Fiction book, this is a great one AND there is nothing about Trump because he was a long way from being president when this came out. (Sigh..resisting the urge to say something Snarky about now).

Whatever your views on Franken, he is not and never has been, boring. And he just makes one laugh while at the same time making you think. I would give this 4.5 stars. Highly recommended. ( )

Franken proves himself to have a lethal capacity to deploy wit as a part of a wider political takedown. He does his homework (one can usually guess the Washington outfit that does it for him, such as Citizens for Tax Justice, but he always gives credit) and then, when he is sure he has caught Bill O’Reilly or Ann Coulter, he begins to slow himself down, give himself time, and really milk the kill. If it’s not laugh-out-loud funny, it’s still pretty good polemical journalism.

Although I wrote this book in a spirit of dispassionate inquiry, I cannot expect my critics to respond in kind. (A note from the author)
God chose me to write this book. (Introduction)
Asking whether there is a liberal or conservative bias to the mainstream media is a little like asking whether al Qaeda uses too much oil in their hummus.
