Stealing Reality: The Rise of the Right, the Fracture of News, the Lessons of Karl Rove

Synopsis:
In Stealing Reality, Bill Israel contends that Karl Rove is the leading practitioner in a long and deliberate enterprise, the national impact of which is greater and more enduring than the effects of the Bush administration alone. The Right, with Karl Rove as exemplar, has refined the use of political communication not only to win elections but to steal reality, in order to shift the American electorate politically and culturally to the right and cement a new political alignment.
