Former President Clinton working on novel with famed suspense writer

Published

on

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is working with best-selling suspense writer James Patterson on a novel called “The President is Missing,” which will be published in June 2018, the publishers said on Monday.

The book will be “a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power,” publishers Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group and Hachette Book Group said in a statement.

Clinton said he had been a fan of Patterson for years and has enjoyed working with him.

“Working on a book about a sitting president – drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House, and the way Washington works – has been a lot of fun,” Clinton said in a statement.

Patterson, known for his novels featuring the psychologist Alex Cross and for the “Women’s Murder Club” series, said working with Clinton was the highlight of his career.

“I’m a story-teller, and President Clinton’s insight has allowed us to tell a really interesting one,” he said in a statement.

“It’s a rare combination,” he added. “Readers will be drawn to the suspense, of course, but they’ll also be given an inside look into what it’s like to be president.”

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
