Sirota and Colbert: Let “The Uprising” begin

Jeremy Gantz

Let it be known far and wide: David Sirota, In These Times senior editor and New York Times bestselling author, will be sitting down with Stephen Colbert tonight to kick off the national tour for his revolutionarily titled new book "The Uprising: An Unauthorized Tour of the Populist Revolt Scaring Wall Street and Washington." (A portion of which was excerpted as this month's In These Times cover story, "Why Democrats Won't Stop the War," which you can read here.) So tune in to Comedy Central to watch our favorite faux reactionary do battle with a real progressive. And check out the Facebook group for "The Uprising" here, and Sirota's full book tour schedule here.

Jeremy Gantz is an In These Times contributing editor working at Time magazine.
