Editorial Reviews

Media mogul and interview expert Barbara Walters interviews long-time columnist Frank Rich in this hour-long conversation recorded at the famed 92nd Street Y in Manhattan.
During the Bush administration, Rich emerged in the pages of The New York Times as one of George Bush’s most forceful critics. This conversation, recorded in 2006, will take the listener back to the dog days of the Bush era, when the devastation of Hurricane Katrina was fresh and the longest war in American history (the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan) was in its third year. Walters makes an intelligent interlocutor as she pushes Rich to expand, clarify, and refine his impassioned critiques.

Relevant Today

Thoughtful, probing commentary by Frank Rich on the disastrous missteps of the George W. Bush administration, rendered even more compelling with the benefit of hindsight.

The material is, of course, dated, but it is also sharply relevant, given the chaos that has erupted in the Middle East as a result of Bush's ill-considered decision to wade into that quagmire.
