Washington, DC (Vocus) August 1, 2009
Townhall Magazine today announced the wide release of its August, 2009 issue—one that will surely rile voters with its in-depth analysis of ACORN and the notorious community organization’s ongoing efforts to bring about radical change in America.
In a profile of ACORN’s roots and strategy, Townhall columnist Matthew Vadum sheds light on the infamous organization and its far reaching network of community activism, and widespread allegations of extortion and voter fraud. Additionally, in a candid interview with Vadum, a former ACORN national board member describes ACORN’s goals—including fundraising schemes and political ambitions.
Other features of the August issue examine recent victories for school choice and the turning tide in America’s war over educational freedom. One article takes a closer look at the agenda of animal “rights” activists and reveals the true motives behind their movement. In foreign affairs, Townhall takes a hard look at the nightmare of a nuclear North Korea, and the innovative role new media outlets played in broadcasting the Iranian election protests to the world.
In addition, Townhall celebrates some 'truth in Tinsel town' with Hollywood director Cyrus Nowrasteh, whose new film, 'The Stoning of Soraya M.,' has been widely praised for its genuine portrayal of Iranian cruelties. Based on a true story, Nowrasteh brings to life the story of an Iranian mob and its austere treatment of a woman falsely accused of adultery.
The August issue is rounded out with the mag’s staple features - those familiar monthly columns and blurbs devoted Townhall.com readers rely on for the latest in conservative news and commentary.
