Description

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

New York Times bestselling author and founder of Media Matters, David Brock takes readers on his daring and eye-opening odyssey through the maze of political trenches.

David Brock is the ultimate happy warrior. Once a leading right-wing hit man, Brock is now the Left's pre-eminent defender and truth-teller.

In this incisive, personal account, Brock disarms the major tentacles of the Republican Leviathan: the Koch Brothers, the Clinton haters, and the Fox Noise Machine. With the acumen of a seasoned political player, Brock takes readers inside his Democratic war rooms and their 24/7 battles with right-wing forces for control of the story lines and messages that will decide the 2016 election. And he chronicles his own evolution from lead Clinton attack-dog to one of Hillary Clinton's fiercest defenders as he knocks down the conservative case against her.

Finally, KILLING THE MESSENGER provides the no holds barred playbook for what the new right-wing conspirators will do in this election cycle to tear apart the electorate-and what good, engaged, and informed citizens can do to stop them.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 21, 2015 – The "vast right-wing conspiracy" to destroy Hillary Clinton is back, according to this trenchant j accuse by an apostate who used to belong to it. Brock gained fame as a conservative journalist with the book The Real Anita Hill, a hatchet job (which he disowns) on the woman who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment; he s now head of the liberal watchdog outfit Media Matters parts of the book read like a fund-raising prospectus for the group and a fervent Clinton-for-president booster. His unabashed mission is to defend Clinton from right-wing detractors such as Rush Limbaugh, the Koch brothers, Fox News, and even some liberal outlets such as the New York Times, which he tars with a longtime anti-Clinton bias. With a media insider s expert eye, Brock details how talking points and innuendos originating from GOP strategists filter down through conservative websites, books, and talk shows and into the mainstream media. He presents lucid, entertaining debunkings of anti-Clinton memes, arguing that she did nothing wrong during the Benghazi attack, broke no e-mail rules as secretary of state, and is neither an out-of-touch elitist nor the man-hating "feminazi" of sexist jibes. Brock s rhetorical venom and naked partisanship will alienate some readers, but his sharp-eyed reporting makes for a spirited challenge to business-as-usual political discourse.
