From Democracy Now!

"Two Georges, Orwell and Bush: Recent sound bites from President Bush
and others accompany a dramatic reading of George Orwell's classic novel, 1984.

100 years ago today, author and journalist George Orwell was born.
We'll spend the hour hearing excerpts from his classic work 1984.
The book introduced the terms "Big Brother," "thought police,"
"newspeak" and "doublethink." We'll also hear clips from President
Bush, Attorney General John Ashcroft, Secretary of State Colin
Powell, Fox New's Bill O'Reilly, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld,
Sen. Robert Byrd and broadcast footage of Donald Rumsfeld meeting
with Saddam Hussein in 1983."

looks good.

btw, here is an online version of 1984.
