Ari Melber, a former U.S. Senate legislative aide, reviewed Attention Deficit Democracy in today’s New York Post. Melber calls the book “a lively attack on politicians, voters and government. Bovard’s indictment of an ineffective but ever-expanding federal government would make any libertarian proud. That may be why the author has so many conservative fans, including […]
Newsday published an op-ed of mine today on how ignorance is subverting democracy and liberty. Some people may dispute the porn ratio in the piece; my hunch is that the number errs significantly on the low side.

The Los Angeles Times ran my op-ed today on the array of wacko definitions of suspected terrorists that the Bush administration has devised since 9/11. Here are some outtakes of the piece: PRESIDENT BUSH and Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales insist that the National Security Agency’s warrantless wiretapping of American citizens is a necessary “terrorist surveillance […]
