Talking with David Brooks about The Social Animal

Email Email Print

Last week I spent an hour with the New York Times’ David Brooks discussing his fascinating new book, The Social Animal. The transcript of the interview is now posted here.

A few days backBrooks’ blasted talk radio hosts as blowhards who “mostly give pseudo Crispin’s Day speeches to battalions of the like-minded from the safety of the conservative ghetto.”

There are a couple who do that, but the pros –Rush, Sean, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and my colleagues from Salem, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager and Michael Medved– do not as a rule deliver such exhortations, though occasionally some of us will borrow a page from the president’s book and suggest calls to the Congress might serve.

Mostly we talk to interesting and/or significant people –at lengths far greater than anywhere on television– about the most important issues, issues that are often presented in books that deserve more attention than any other medium in the American media world will provide them.
