The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy: How liberals in elective office, interest groups and the mainstream media try to control what you think and know.
Using her personal experience and offering specific examples from today’s issues and news coverage, Mary Cheney details how liberal politicians, activists and journalists try to influence and manipulate public perception and opinion.
Expert Political Insider
From her first campaign job, wearing a “Honk for Cheney” sandwich board when she was eight years old, to her last as Director of Vice Presidential Operations for the Bush-Cheney’04 re-election campaign, Mary Cheney has experience at every level of political campaigns. As a senior advisor and top campaign aide to her father, Vice President Dick Cheney, Ms. Cheney was in the middle of the major events and decisions of the 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns. Her position as a member of the campaign’s inner circle, and as her father’s daughter, makes her uniquely qualified to provide a behind-the-scenes look at presidential campaigns and American political life.
A Daughter’s Chronicle of Political Life
In her frank, funny, and down-to-earth memoir, Now It’s My Turn: A Daughter’s Chronicle of Political Life, Ms. Cheney describes life inside the bubble of a national campaign, which can be, as she describes it, uplifting, frustrating, and heartbreaking, but no matter what else it may be, it’s always entertaining. As a Senior Advisor to her father, she was in the middle of every major event of the 2000 and 2004 presidential contests – at the conventions, the debates, and on the trail. Both elections made history – and so did Ms. Cheney. And for the first time ever, she writes about what it was like to be at the center of her father's campaigns as his daughter and as a member of the senior staff. Ms. Cheney has been a featured guest on such shows as Primetime Live, Fox News Sunday, Larry King Live, and The Late Show with David Letterman.
