Announcing My Next Point of Inquiry Episode Topic: Among the Truthers

By Chris Mooney | May 19, 2011 12:36 pm

I’m pleased to announce my next Point of Inquiry guest for the show airing Monday: Jonathan Kay, a journalist with Canada’s National Post and author of the new book Among the Truthers: A Journey Through America’s Growing Conspiracist Underground.

I’ve been beating up on Birthers a lot lately (everyone has), so this is a bit of “balancing.” Of course, Kay knows a lot about Birthers too.

We did the interview last night and I think people are going to like this one. Airs Monday. If you’re interested, check out the book in the meantime.

I also appeared recently with Kay on MSNBC.

    Why the difference in treatment between high profile Birthers and Truthers? Not from you, but from the media in general.

    Pleased to say I asked that question on the show. tune in…

  4. We had Kay for an interview last night, and he was spectacular.

    Shouldn’t the helicopters on that book cover be black?
