It seems only fitting that I have been asked to introduce Bill Press and host this salon on his book The Obama Hate Machine, an indispensable expose of the “largely personal, political, and mean-spirited” assault on America’s first black president.

I occasionally have the chance to listen to Bill Press’s morning radio show, but had been having trouble listening for very long recently because Press had taken on the mantle of Booster Club member, actively defending Barack Obama as Obama and his team engaged in hippie punching leading up to the midterm elections.
