Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative Horror Book Review
Featured Book Review: Darkbound

In a powerful and deeply personal memoir in the tradition of Arthur Koestlerâ€™s The God That Failed, David Brock, the original right-wing scandal reporter, chronicles his rise to the pinnacle of the conservative movement and his painful break with it.
David Brock pilloried Anita Hill in a bestseller. His reporting in The American Spectator as part of the infamous â€śArkansas Projectâ€ť triggered the course of events that led to the historic impeachment trial of President Clinton. Brock was at the center of the right-wing dirty tricks operation of the Gingrich eraâ€“and a true believerâ€“until he could no longer deny that the political force he was advancing was built on little more than lies, hate, and hypocrisy.
In Blinded By the Right, Brock, who came out of the closet at the height of his conservative renown, tells his riveting story from the beginning, giving us the first insiderâ€™s view of what Hillary Rodham Clinton called â€śthe vast right-wing conspiracy.â€ť Whether dealing with the right-wing press, the richly endowed think tanks, Republican political operatives, or the Paula Jones case, Brock names names from Clarence Thomas on down, uncovers hidden links, and demonstrates how the Republican Rightâ€™s zeal for power created the poisonous political climate that culminated in George W. Bushâ€™s election.
Now in paperback and with a new afterword by the author, Blinded By the Right is a classic political memoir of our times.
