9780143112341: The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth in Bush's America

Demonstrating the candor and conviction that have made him one of our most trusted and incisive public voices, The New York Times columnist Frank Rich brilliantly and meticulously illuminates the Bush administration's disturbing love affair with ?truthiness.? Rich's step-by-step chronicle shows how, in the wake of 9/11, a propaganda president and his advisors misled a nation into war in Iraq and how the bungled aftermath, a Washington leak, and a devastating hurricane at long last revealed the lies in a story that had been so effectively sold to the nation as God-given patriotic fact.

Product Description:

The Greatest Story Ever Sold A "New York Times" columnist reviews the trajectory of fictions spun by the Bush administration from 9/11 to Hurricane Katrina, revealing the most brilliant spin campaign ever conducted. Full description

Review:

A gripping, witty and devastating indictment of President Bushs reliance on public relations to market his Iraq and counterterrorism policies.
"The Washington Post"
As a former theater critic, Frank Rich has the perfect credentials for writing an account of the Bush administration, which has done so much to blur the lines between politics and show business.
Ian Buruma, "The New York Times Book Review"
Fierce and uncompromising.
"Time Out"
Occasionally the right man is at just the right place at exactly the right time.... Frank Rich is that man.... A shrewdly observed and reasoned explanation of the motives behind all this horrifically destructive deceit.
Tim Rutten, "Los Angeles Times"
An incisive assault on the administrations message control and word games.
"Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"
Destined to enjoy a healthy shelf life.
"The New York Times"
