The Saturday Book and Author Luncheon featured some of the nation’s top media commentators on one panel discussing their upcoming works. The discussion became heated at times. Ms. Schroeder moderated the panel featuring media commentators giving presentations on their latest books. The luncheon panel included: Ms. Ivins, author of Bushwacked: Life in George W. Bush’s America, from Random House; Mr. O’Reilly, author of Who’s Looking Out For You?, from Doubleday Broadway; and Mr. Franken, author of Lies, and The Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right, from Dutton Books. Mr. O’Reilly became angry after Mr. Franken went over his time limit while explaining why Mr. O’Reilly’s picture was on the proposed cover of Mr. Franken’s forthcoming book. The controversy was over an occasion when Mr. O’Reilly had said that his television show had won Peabody awards when in fact it had won Polk awards. Mr. Franken said that Mr. O’Reilly has not sufficiently acknowledged the mistake. After discussions among themselves the panelists answered questions from members of the audience. close
