Bill Press exposes conservative talkers with new book


Dial Global’s Bill Press has taken full aim at his colleagues on the right side of the dial in his just released book, “Toxic Talk: How the Radical Right Has Poisoned America’s Airwaves.”

Published by St. Martin’s Press, “Toxic Talk” is a timely cannon blast at the right-wing media machine and how it subverts the principles of democratic representation.

“Bill’s characteristic and incisive wit shine through in this book,” says Amy Bolton, Senior VP of News & Talk for Dial Global. “Once again, Bill Press is making the news with his incendiary expose on his Conservative talk radio peers. ‘Toxic Talk’ is sure to keep stations and listeners alike talking for some time to come!”

In “Toxic Talk,” Bill Press explores the destructive power of Rush, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Bill O’Reilly, and the other polarizing figures of talk radio who dominate 90% of the political airwaves today. Citing their own words as evidence, Press brilliantly makes the case that much of what is broadcast on radio and television today is—at best—distorted and partisan, and—at worst—lies, propaganda and bigotry sold by these talented modern-day pitchmen who have followings in the millions.
