America's Right Turn: How Conservatives Used New and Alternative Media to Take Power
Liberal media activists beware! Richard A. Viguerie, venture capitalist of the conservative movement (described as funding father of the right) and David Franke, a founder of the conservative movement, detail how conservatives-shut out by the liberal mass media of the 1950s and '60s-came to power by utilizing new and alternative media, and then created their own mass media.

I believe that all progressives should read and learn from what the right has accomplished. Viguerie and Franke spell out how members of the small conservative movement found one another, established a network of people who worked towards common goals, and took personal initiative to move their program forward. If Greens would load their trunks with books that explain their political philosophy they could follow in Viguerie and Franke's footsteps. If environmentalists would work with death penalty activists the way gun advocates and anti-tax voters were brought together by the conservatives, they would see the progress the conservatives have won over the years. It's all there in his book.
Why would he do that? He says he laid it all out because he believes progressives are too lazy to follow his lead and build a long term strategy for success. Is he right? Yes, but, is he also *correct*? Time will tell.
