Best-selling author and political satirist Al Franken kicks off Cambridge Forum's 37th year of public programs with a talk on 'Democracy in the Age of Dubya.' Drawing from his book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right (Dutton, October 2003), Franken employs his trademark wit and insight in a discussion of the state of American democracy under the administration of George W. Bush. He debunks the myth of a liberal bias in the media and takes aim at the conservative organizations and individuals who perpetuate it. Does political satire address topics that traditional media does not? What role do entertainers and satirists play in the political process?

Al Franken is a Grammy Award-winning comedian and best-selling author of Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations; Why Not Me?; and Oh, the Things I Know! He was a member of the original creative team behind Saturday Night Live and won five Emmy Awards for his writing and producing on the show. A graduate of Harvard University, he was named a 2003 fellow at the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
