Thats what Brian C. Anderson shows in South Park Conservatives:
The Revolt against Liberal Media Bias. Its a behind-the-scenes look
at how conservativesand even iconoclasts who dont consider
themselves conservativeare overthrowing the liberal media and political
correctness. From the bloggers who demolished Dan Rather, to the Swift
Boat veterans who sank John Kerry, to the gleeful antipolitical
correctness of such comedic send-ups as South Park and Team America, the
American media landscape has suffered an earthquake. Conservatives who
have fretted about liberal media bias and losing the culture war should
take heart, because a new generation of "South Park Conservatives" is
changing everything. In South Park Conservatives, youll learn:
- How media bias in the 2004 Kerry/Bush race was so overwhelming as
to make a mockery of "journalistic ethics"
- How liberal Hollywood has triedand failedto read conservatives
out of the industry
- How right-of-center students are turning the tables on their left-wing
profs at campuses across the nation
- How the liberal monopoly has been broken beyond all repair by Rush
Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, FOX News, and the
- How hysterical liberal accusations of conservative "bigotry"
and "hate" have boomeranged against the Left
- How media and academic liberalsseeing their monopoly on information
and communication disappearinghave embraced extremism and conspiracy-mongering
As Brian C. Anderson demonstrates, the New York Times, the big networks,
and the rest of the elite liberal media can no longer set the terms
of the nations political and cultural debate. The liberal medias
monolithic power has cracked and brokenand freedom and conservative
ideas are breaking out all over. So sit back, pour yourself a drink,
and savor South Park Conservatives. The liberal media has never looked
so likely to head for the ash heap of history as now. South Park Conservatives:
The Revolt against Liberal Media Bias is an inside peek at how conservatives
and the politically incorrect "anti-liberals" are starting
to win the culture warand are having fun doing it.

National Review Online
"Brian Anderson in South Park Conservatives shows how today's young people are rebelling against the left-wing dominance of the established media and
tenured radicals in the universities. And he shows how they may build quite a different America from what we have been led to expect."

certain to continue."
"Brian Anderson is a first-rate reporter and this is a first-rate account of how conservatives are working to break the left-wing dominance of the culture. I couldn't
