Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism.

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Sarah Sobieraj, author of Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism.

Bush, congressional Republicans have seen fit to hold hostage the creditworthiness of the United States.
