AMERICA (THE AUDIOBOOK) A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction

by | Read by Jon Stewart and the cast of "The Daily Show"

Humor • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" is the best fake news program on the airwaves. In this abridgment of his current bestseller, Stewart and his staff turn their attention to the political history of the United States. Formatted as a high school audiovisual teaching kit, this unique production combines the voices of the "Daily Show" regulars with patriotic fanfares, farcical self-assessment tools, comical class projects, and even a cameo by Thomas Jefferson. Profane, snarky, and sometimes merely hilarious, this module won't prepare anyone for a citizenship test, but it might excite an interest in the truth behind the theater of contemporary political dialogue. In the tradition of Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, and Dick Gregory, this recording is liable to become a classic of political satire.
