David Brock is an American journalist and author and the founder of the liberal media watchdog group, Media Matters for America. He was a conservative journalist during the 1990s gaining notoriety for his book The Real Anita Hill and authoring the Troopergate story, which led to Paula Jones filing a lawsuit against Bill Clinton. At the start of the Presidency of George W. Bush his views shifted significantly towards the left. He founded Media Matters for America, a non-profit organization that describes itself as a "progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media."

Conservative journalist, wrote books attacking Anita Hill, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the left. Later renounced his own writing of that time, and wrote Blinded By the Right.

The January 1994 issue of The American Spectator included an article by Brock entitled "Living With the Clintons" which broke the Troopergate scandal. It reported that an Arkansas state trooper claimed that then-governor Bill Clinton had screwed some woman 1991 "whom the trooper remembered only as Paula." The article generated a firestorm that gave rise to the Paula Jones lawsuit, the Ken Starr investigation, and the subsequent Lewinsky scandal.
