What happens when a journalist runs afoul of shrill Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly and his marauding army of right wing viewers? Rick Perlstein found out when Newsweek published his think piece on Sarah Palin’s future in the Republican Party.

Rick Perlstein is the author of Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America.
