A former right-wing, now left-wing writer critiques conservative media and conservative efforts to influence politics and culture. In a serious baritone, narrator Michael Kramer captures the sense of the text with its biting commentary and sardonic tone. The narration seems flat at points, and no vocal characterizations enliven the lengthy text. Brock's critique offers a sometimes compelling and sometimes histrionic case against the conservative network of media organizations, activists, think tanks, and foundations. In his view, both liberals and journalism are being pummeled by a dangerous and Machiavellian network of conservative activists and media figures who are harmful to the functioning of democracy.
