ABC News:

Huffington's politics lean left, but that wasn't the case in the mid-'90s when she was a friend to Newt Gingrich and a card-carrying member of the Republican Party.

Now she's written a new book called "Right Is Wrong," in which she argues that the "lunatic fringe" of American conservatives have "hijacked" the country.

You can read an excerpt from the book here.

John Amato: The book is really, really good. There are so many outrageous stories constantly coming our way that I almost forgot about the Utah mining disaster. She covers it in detail.
