Doug sits down with John Avlon, senior political columnist at the Daily Beast and author of “Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America.” He is also a regular commentator on CNN. John has served as chief speechwriter for Mayor Rudy Giuliani and was a columnist and associate editor at the “New York Sun.” The book looks at the outbreak of extremism in the opening years of the Obama administration and how we can move past the fear-mongers and the extremists on both sides to take back our country.
