By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – On our show today, we hear from Jon Meacham, the executive editor and executive vice president at Random House. Meacham is also a former editor of Newsweek and a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian --- as well as a prolific commentator on politics, history, current events, and religious faith. As a bestselling author, Meacham has written the books "Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship" and "American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House" (among other volumes). As he tells us on today's StudioTulsa, he's now working on a biography of Thomas Jefferson --- "let's see, right now, it's 1801 in my head," jokes Meacham --- and is also thinking of attempting (at some point in the coming years) a life George H. W. Bush. Meacham is scheduled to deliver an address entitled "The Media's Secret Bias: Liberals, Conservatives, and the Truth about the News" at the Tulsa Town Hall on April 15th; you can learn more about his upcoming appearance in Tulsa at this web page: http://tulsatownhall.com/speakers/22.
