Summary

Bernard Goldberg takes dead aim at the America Bashers (the cultural elites who look down their snobby noses at "ordinary" Americans and detest so much of what this country is about); the Hollywood Blowhards (incredibly ditzy celebrities who think they're smart just because they're famous); the TV Schlockmeisters (including the one whose show has been compared to a churning mass of maggots devouring rotten meat); the Intellectual Thugs (big-wigs at some of our best colleges, whose views run the gamut from left-wing to far left-wing); and many more. Goldberg names names, profiling the villains in his rogues' gallery, one by one, from 100 down to 1, and yes, you-know-who is #37. But Goldberg doesn't just round up the usual suspects we have come to know and detest. He also exposes some of the people who operate away from the limelight but still manage to pull a lot of strings and do all sorts of harm to our culture.
100 People Who Are Screwing Up America is about a country where as long as anything goes, sooner or later everything will go.

An eye opener

I love it! I did not know all of the people in the book - like the rap stars and people at the TV networks but enjoyed reading about them.

Some good points (really), kinda partisan.

Hello,

Yes, the writer does have some good points, people are not biggots for not liking Janet Jackson desperate attempt to sell a few extra CD's with her superbowl performance. The book is somewhat funny and yes it isn't purely conservative.

It does point to some people I never heard of and some who for the sake of there career quite happily pretend to be principled.

The book writing style is like the top 100 music list starting from 100, 5 of these in a row are funny. Listening to the full 100 cast is definately tedious. (the person who thought hurricanes should have more "black" names was funny and insightful, I never knew there was such a thing as a "black name").

Al in all a great book if you want to work yourself up(being a liberal) or get some cheap shots(if you're conservative). A mildly funny, somewhat informative original list if you're none of the above. Hopefully this helps you on deciding a bit.
