Episode Summary

Religion and Politics
Tucker interviews Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Research, who argues that while the United States faces Islamic extremists specifically, all religions inevitably bring out the worst in their adherents.

In the Plus 2 segment, Tucker is joined by Zanny Minton Beddoes of The Economist and Deroy Murdoch of Scripps Howard in a discussion of the latest political news, with a particular eye toward next week's Republican National Convention.

And on the Back Page, Tucker engages Charles Noble, author of The Collapse of Liberalism: Why America Needs a New Left, who argues that Democrats continue to lose elections because they don't offer their voters more principled alternatives. Borrowing from Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan, Noble contends that a successful left has to first believe in its own ideas.moreless
