Michael Medved talked about his book The 10 Big Lies About America: Combating Destructive Distortions About Our Nation (Crown Forum; November 18, 2008). In the book, Mr. Medved argues that ten commonly held beliefs about the United States - that it committed genocide against the natives, that it was founded as a secular nation, that it is an imperial country, and others - are all myths. The guest interviewer was Mona Charen.

Mona Charen, a nationally syndicated columnist, is the author of Do-Gooders: How Liberals Hurt Those They Claim to Help (And the Rest of Us) and Useful Idiots: How Liberals Got It Wrong in the Cold War and Still Blame America First. She was formerly a speechwriter for first lady Nancy Reagan. close
