Medved Pummels Political Correctness

In a speech at Discovery Institute, where he is a Senior Fellow, Michael Medved described the origin and startling trajectory of his latest book, “The Ten Big Lies About America.” Medved advised an enthusiastic crowd gathered at a book party that his book has been ignored by major reviewers, but (as happens these days), already has gone through nine printings since it first appeared four months ago.

The Medved book is winning an especially appreciative audience among conservatives and other tradition-minded Americans for its defense of the history and values of the United States, a history often misrepresented in the media and institutions of public education.

Introducing Medved, Discovery President Bruce Chapman, described the author and national talk show host, as “a pioneer, an explorer on a voyage of rediscovery” of America’s true past and present. The new book, he said, is a treasure trove of useful information for anyone faced with the arguments commonly advanced by advocates of political correctness.
