Jack Cashill talked about his book Hoodwinked: How Intellectual Hucksters Have Hijacked American Culture, published by Nelson Current. In the book he describes Margaret Mead, Alex Haley, and Noam Chomsky, among others, as intellectual frauds. He argues that many progressive writers and filmmakers use falsehoods and fabrications in their critiques of traditional American culture. He detailed frauds, plagiarisms, perjuries and other false reports that have become accepted parts of American culture but are ignored by the press. He responded to questions from members of the audience.

The event, held in the Sanctuary of Unity Temple on the Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri, was sponsored by Rainy Day Books in Fairway, Kansas. close
