David Sirota Part I by Mitch E. Perry05/04/06
The Chicago Tribune describes David Sirotaâ€™s new book, â€œHostile Takeoverâ€? as a book that tells you more about our corporations and politicians than our corporations and politicians think you really ought to know, while the website alternet calls it one of the most important books to come along in awhileâ€¦
Sirota used to work as a Press Secretary to Vermont Socialist Congressman Bernie Saundersâ€¦He now advises Montanaâ€™s Governor, Democrat Brian Scheitzer
Heâ€™s also worked as a chief spokesman for the Democrats on the House Appropriations C Committeeâ€¦â€¦In the introduction to his book, Sirota writes that most books about politics arenâ€™t written to explain the real life day to day challenges facing the regular people demographicâ€¦.and he says thereâ€™s a reason for thatâ€¦WMNF asked him : what was that reason?(roll tape#1 o.q.â€?and then what you can do about itâ€?)
Thatâ€™s David Sirota, author of â€œHostile Takeoverâ€?â€¦.Weâ€™ll air the 2nd part of our interview with him tomorrow night on the Evening Newscast.
