Ben Shapiro is editor-in- chief of DailyWire.com, and host of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” the top conservative podcast in the nation. Shapiro is the author of seven books, including The New York Times bestseller,“Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America” (2012). Shapiro is also a nationally syndicated columnist since age 17, and a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School. Rush Limbaugh says Shapiro isn’t just “content to have people be dazzled by his brilliance; he actually goes out and confronts and tries to persuade, mobilize, motivate people.” 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.”
