Lee Fang is a fantastic investigative reporter. You may remember him from his work at Think Progress, and now he is a reporting fellow with The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute and a contributing writer for the Nation. His complete– and very impressive– bio can be found here.
Lee is also someone I correspond with from time to time, and I can vouch for this: He’s a great guy with a brain the size of Wyoming… and he’s written a book. It’s called The Machine: A Field Guide to the Resurgent Right.
Here is a website that sums the book up nicely, including this:

Written by the blogger who was the first to report on the lobbyists who brought us the Tea Parties, here is a groundbreaking exposé of the plans to make America conservative again.
He’s even got some brand new scoops, so follow the links and give it a read.
