Alexander Zaitchik, a freelanc journalist who contributes to AlterNet.org, presents a critical account of political pundit Glenn Beck’s personal and professional life. Mr. Zaitchik contends that Mr.Beck’s radio career was floundering until he found a niche in promoting negligent claims against the left and coordinating political rallies that the author argues were less about the advancement of a specific political or social cause and more a promotional opportunity for the radio and tv host. Alexander Zaitchik presents his book at Borders bookstore in Washington, DC. close
