Lecturer, syndicated columnist, television commentator, debater, marketer, businessman, author, publisher and activist, L. Brent Bozell III is one of the most outspoken and effective national leaders in the conservative movement today.

In 2010, Mr. Bozell founded ForAmerica, an organization committed to restoring America to its founding principles. In less than a year ForAmerica grew to over 1.5 million Facebook followers and now boasts over 7.5 million facebook followers. In 1998, Mr. Bozell founded and was the first president of the Parents Television Council, the largest group in America dedicated to a restoring responsibility to Hollywood. Before founding the MRC, Mr. Bozell was the finance director and later the president of the National Political Action Committee.

He is the author of four books, including And That’s the Way It Is(n’t) (with Brent Baker), Weapons of Mass Distortion, Whitewash (with Tim Graham), and Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election---and How to Stop Them from Doing It in 2016 (with Tim Graham).

As “FoxNews’ brightest, funniest young Conservative mind,” Steven Crowder is a mainstay in the worlds of television, comedy and writing. Before being brought in as one of FoxNews’ youngest contributors ever, Steven began his career in entertainment with acting and stand up comedy.
Beginning as a mere teenager, Steven performed in the major festivals and winning national talent competitions (including one on Myspace, remember that site?) all before he was old enough to legally consume a beer. Unsatisfied, Steven decided to take his brand of take-no-prisoners, politically incorrect, comedy-club-favorite humor… to the Internet. Quickly racking up tens of millions of views, Crowder was seen as somewhat of a conundrum. His irreverent, hilarious yet distinctly Conservative videos surprisingly went viral, resulting in him being thrust into the national spotlight of cable news and radio. You name the show, Crowder’s done it.
While still active in both television/film and comedy, Crowder is now most famously known as a Conservative lightening rod. As an entertainer, activist and commentator, Crowder’s trademark has become that of bravely entering the belly of the liberalism beast… without backing down. Be it television, the stage or the Internet, wherever Crowder goes, he continues to leave enlightenment, entertainment and controversy in his wake. Enjoy.
