Interview with Frank Rich

This is a good interview with Frank Rich, author of, The "Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth from 9/11 to Katrina."

Until a few years ago, Frank Rich was the lead Broadway Theater Critic for the New York Times. What's interesting about his switch to a serious political writer is its relevance to the Bush Administration's approach to the truth. He makes the case that the way Bush has tried to manipulate the truth is very similar to staging a theater production with one thing being acted out on stage while a completely different truth is going on back stage.
