David Brock      

Journalist, Author & Democratic Political Activist; Founder of Media Matters for America

David Brock is a political operative, author, commentator, and founder of Media Matters for America and American Bridge 21st Century.

Formerly a conservative journalist, Brock became famous as a critic of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Brock later published several confessional pieces denouncing conservative media before becoming a close ally and consigliere of the Clinton family and Democratic politicians. Brock has been described by Time magazine as “one of the most influential political operatives in the Democratic party.” Brock resides in Washington, D.C.

In 2004, Brock founded Media Matters, the nation’s premier media watchdog. Following the 2010 elections, Brock founded the Democratic SuperPAC American Bridge, which is one of the largest modern campaign war rooms ever assembled using research, tracking, and rapid response to defeat Republicans.

He is the author of five books, including his 2002 best-selling memoir, "Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative." His writing appears in USA Today, CNN.com, the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast and Salon.

In his 2015 book, "Killing the Messenger," 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.

Brock graduated from Berkeley with a B.A. in history in 1985.
