Scott Borchert interviews Anthony DiMaggio on his new book, "The Rise of the Tea Party: Political Discontent and Corporate Media in the Age of Obama" out in November 2011 from Monthly Review Press.
Scott Borchert: Your primary focus as a scholar is on media and communications. Why a book on the Tea Party?
Anthony DiMaggio: I've also researched and participated in social movements and interest-group politics consistently for the last ten years, although much of my research does focus on media and public opinion.
