Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author and founder of Media Matters David Brock takes listeners on his daring and eye-opening odyssey through a maze of political trenches.

David Brock is the ultimate happy warrior. Once a leading right-wing hit man, Brock is now the left's preeminent defender and truth teller.

In this incisive, personal account, 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 listeners 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. And he chronicles his own evolution from lead Clinton attack dog to one of Hillary Clinton's fiercest defenders as he knocks down the conservative case against her.

Finally, Killing the Messenger provides the no-holds-barred playbook for what the new right-wing conspirators will do in this election cycle to tear apart the electorate - and what good, engaged, and informed citizens can do to stop them.

Audio version differs from the First Edition: September 2015 print version.

Many changes were made in the audiobook. The majority were to improve the listening experience, which are totally acceptable. However, facts, including dates and direct quotes, were also changed, thus forcing me to question the validity of all "facts" presented throughout the book. Instead of clarifying some issues the book made me question even more if you can trust any sources.
