Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative

David Brock


In a strong and deeply own memoir within the culture of Arthur Koestler’s The God That Failed, David Brock, the unique right-wing scandal reporter, chronicles his upward thrust to the head of the conservative stream and his painful holiday with it.

David Brock pilloried Anita Hill in a bestseller. His reporting in The American Spectator as a part of the notorious “Arkansas undertaking” prompted the process occasions that resulted in the ancient impeachment trial of President Clinton. Brock was once on the heart of the right-wing soiled methods operation of the Gingrich era–and a real believer–until he may well not deny that the political strength he was once advancing was once outfitted on little greater than lies, hate, and hypocrisy.

In Blinded by means of the Right, Brock, who got here out of the closet on the top of his conservative renown, tells his riveting tale from the start, giving us the 1st insider’s view of what Hillary Rodham Clinton known as “the sizeable right-wing conspiracy.” no matter if facing the right-wing press, the richly endowed imagine tanks, Republican political operatives, or the Paula Jones case, Brock names names from Clarence Thomas on down, uncovers hidden hyperlinks, and demonstrates how the Republican Right’s zeal for strength created the toxic political weather that culminated in George W. Bush’s election.

Now in paperback and with a brand new afterword by way of the writer, Blinded by way of the Right is a vintage political memoir of our occasions.
