1968 Game of the Century ~UCLA v. HOUSTON

Fw: Meet Bill Press June 9th!

When pressed...I always turn to Bill.

WCPTFM's Rich Message
Meet Bill Press
Saturday, June 9th • 2pm-4pm

Meet veteran political analyst, author, and host of WCPT and Current TV's
The Bill Press Show as he discusses the upcoming elections and signs
copies of his new book- The Obama Hate Machine.
In The Obama Hate Machine, Press returns to show how the Right has taken rhetoric to slanderous new levels in attacking the nation's forty-fourth president. In his characteristic on-the-mark arguments sure to appeal to anyone on the Left or in the Center, Press shows how the peculiar nature of Obama-hating subverts
issue-driven debate and threatens not only the outcome of the 2012 election but the future of the American democratic system.
7511 Lemont Road
Darien, IL 60561
SOUTH-EAST corner of 75th & Lemont
(630) 427-1140
Visit WCPT at these other great events coming up!
