HOUSTON, Jan. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and a chaotic election year that brought political divide, author David Rowan brings a captivating fictionized approach to the table in his new book, “The Viral President.” A story that consists of satire, intrigue, conspiracy and a murder sub-plot, this gripping novel is addressing the ramifications of the media’s immense influence on the democratic process.
The story follows Ron Suit, a television talk show host, who decides to run for President of the United States. After his win against career politician, Stacey Lincoln, he begins to experience attacks from a cynical media and self-interested figures throughout the course of his presidency. Following Lincoln’s loss, global business magnate Milos Kunis does everything in his power to ensure that his choice will not fail again. With obvious parallels to modern day, Suit undergoes threats of impeachment, incessant criticism and a turbulent election season while navigating a global pandemic.
He runs against an aging establishment figure who is armed with shady tactics employed by his party and faces an uphill climb to a second term. Rowan hopes that this compelling story gets readers thinking about how easy today’s media, on both sides of the political arena, can manipulate viewers and the devasting division it creates.
“Mr. Rowan hit a home run with this and the timing couldn’t have been any better,” said an Amazon reviewer. “[The book is] funny, poignant, [and] well-written.”
Readers will enjoy this entertaining spin of events that so heavily dominated the news cycle this past year. A narrative that shines a light on the devious world of U.S. politics, “The Viral President” is a fascinating read that captivates with its analysis of the American electoral system and modern-day journalism.
