Joining us from New York is Frank Rich, Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times and author of "The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth from 9/11 to Katrina." His column last Sunday named Tiger Woods the Person of the Year over Ben Bernanke and the Enron scandal as "the template for the decade of successful ruses."
Also from New York, we're joined by Nancy Gibbs, editor-at-large at Time Magazine. Time's recent cover called the 2000s the "Decade from Hell." She's the co-author of "The Preacher and the Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House."
