This week our guest is Norman Solomon, author of Made Love, Got War: Close Encounters with America's Warfare State (October 2007).
A familiar voice for Media Matters listeners, Solomon is a nationally syndicated columnist on media and politics. He is founder and executive director of the Institute for Public Accuracy, a national consortium of policy researchers and analysts, and has been writing the weekly Media Beat column since 1992.
Solomon's book War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death was published in 2005. The Los Angeles Times called the book "brutally persuasive" and "a must-read for those who would like greater context with their bitter morning coffee, or to arm themselves for the debates about Iraq that are still to come." A documentary based on the book was released in 2007.
