South Park Conservatives  by Brian Anderson

 

Regnery Publishing, Inc., 2005
By Brian C. Anderson

That’s what Brian C. Anderson shows in South Park Conservatives: The Revolt against Liberal Media Bias. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at how conservatives—and even iconoclasts who don’t consider themselves conservative—are 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 anti–political 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, you’ll 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 tried—and failed—to 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 blogosphere
  • How hysterical liberal accusations of conservative "bigotry" and "hate" have boomeranged against the Left
  • How media and academic liberals—seeing their monopoly on information and communication disappearing—have 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 nation’s political and cultural debate. The liberal media’s monolithic power has cracked and broken—and 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 war—and are having fun doing it.

"Brian Anderson tells the communications saga of the last twenty years with verve, intelligence, and flair."

Michael Novak

"One needn't agree with everything in South Park Conservatives to recognize that this elegantly written and thoughtfully considered book will change the debate about the future of conservatism and is must-reading for anybody who wants to participate in that debate."

Jonah Goldberg
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."

Michael Barone
senior writer, U.S. News & World Report, co-author, The Almanac of American Politics

"In South Park Conservatives, Brian Anderson pops the hood on the new media revolution and explores how conservatives have enjoyed huge success is certain to continue."

Tom Bevan
RealClearPolitics

"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 recommend a better book on this subject."

David Horowitz
