Publisher Comments:

“We have to fight back.” —Al Franken

The Left is angry—angry at President George W. Bush, the war in Iraq, the “right-wing media,” and more. And as National Review investigative writer Byron York reveals in this stunning, meticulously reported book, liberal activists have harnessed that anger to build the biggest, richest, and best organized political movement in American history.

Indeed, the Left’s failure to oust President Bush in 2004 has obscured the fact that this new movement has transformed American politics. York documents the staggering scope of liberals’ efforts—the record sums of money spent, the “shell game” financial maneuvers, the close coordination between “nonpartisan” groups and the Democratic Party, the revolutionary approaches to fund-raising and reaching out to voters, the pioneering use of movies and websites as campaign tools, and more.

The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy provides a startling behind-the-scenes look at this powerful liberal movement. York brings the reader into secret powwows at Soros’s Hamptons estate, into the Chinese restaurant where MoveOn is born, to a gala event where Al Franken rants about the evils of the right wing, to fund-raisers where liberals openly mock the election laws they’re ignoring, to the movie premiere where Michael Moore is feted by top-ranking Democrats, into the Washington restaurant where Democratic operatives hatch their plan, and to many other spots along the way.

One thing above all becomes clear: Despite their failure to win in 2004, liberals will only keep improving the well-oiled political machine they built.

Synopsis:

A provocative look at how liberal media, money, and minds are uniting as never before, this explosive expos reveals the most important new political movement in decades.

Synopsis:

“We ARE building a Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.” With those words, the influential left-wing blogger Daily Kos confirmed the argument of National Reviews Byron York in this fascinating and meticulously reported book. The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy provides a startling behind-the-scenes look at the well-oiled (and well-funded) political machine built by Democratic operatives, eccentric billionaires, liberal activists, and assorted celebrities. And in this newly updated paperback edition, York exposes how this powerful movement is redoubling its efforts for the 2006 elections, with its eye on the ultimate target: the White House in 2008. The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy is a stunning look at how the Left is radically remaking the American political scene.
