Shapiro is Shillman Senior Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, as well as editor-at-large of Breitbart News. Shapiro is the New York Times bestselling author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America (2012), Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV (2011), and Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth (2004), among others. Shapiro is also a nationally syndicated columnist, a graduate of Harvard Law School, and the host of The Morning Answer on KRLA 870 in Los Angeles.
Glenn Beck calls Shapiro a “warrior for conservatism, against those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate. I’ve never known him to back down from a fight.” Sarah Palin says that Americans should “consider Ben’s advice about how we must stand up and push back twice as hard against this bullying.” Sean Hannity says to join Ben Shapiro and “fight back!” against liberal bullying. And Michelle Malkin says Shapiro is “infused with the indomitable spirit of his friend and mentor Andrew Breitbart.” Even the liberal Washington Post, in the aftermath of Shapiro’s devastating destruction of Piers Morgan on national television, conceded that Shapiro is a “foe of extraordinary polemical agility.”
