We live in an age when the 30-second TV spot is the most powerful force shaping the electorate's thinking, and America is in the hands of an administration less interested than any before it in sharing the truth with the citizenry. How did we get here? And how much damage has been done to the functioning of our democracy? Al Gore explains how the public sphere has evolved into a place hospitable to reason's enemies, and shows what we can do, individually and collectively, to restore the rule of reason and safeguard our future.

I basically ignore this guy for the following reasons: [1] his campaign platform - - and Geo. W. Bush's campaign plantform - - were so much alike in the 2000 presidential campaign, no wonder so many decided to vote for the real republicon, instead of the democratic poseur; [2] Gore's pathetic legal strategy before the Supreme Court, which decided in favor of Bush {Gore should have demanded an entire vote recount for the state of Florida, not just several counties, and to end that idiot argument against Ralph Nader, Bush received more democratic votes in Florida than did Ralph; and, [3] after losing the election, Gore got together with two of his Goldman Sachs buddies to found a hedge fund involved in trading carbon permits - - a total financial scam based upon giving yet more money creation power to the banks and oil companies!

It may be a little heavy on his anti-Bush sentiment, but he does present good points about how the change in the way Americans absorb media has hurt the democratic process.
