Susan Jacoby interview - Part 2 listen04/07/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Susan Jacobyâ€™s new book, The Age of American Unreason, is her attack on an America that is losing its intellectual standards. In its tone, it could be considered one of a series of books written over the years by academics who mourn the countryâ€™s basic lack of knowledge slipping every year.
Itâ€™s the type of book that both liberals and conservatives have written in the past. In fact, as Jacoby writes, seemingly itâ€™s one place where those on all ideological stripes can come together. But Jacoby tells WMNF thatâ€™s not the case.
Weâ€™ll air the final part of this interview later this week on the Evening News.
