Aledo's David Barton, founder of Wallbuilders, was recently featured in the New York Times in an article entitled "Using History to Mold Ideas on the Right."
The article, by Erik Eckholm, pointed out that Barton has the ear of several would-be presidential candidates, and said "Through two decades of prolific, if disputed, research and some 400 speeches a year on what he calls the forgotten Christian roots of America, Mr. Barton, 57, a former school principal and an ordained minister, has steadily built a reputation as a guiding spirit of the religious right."
Barton also made an appearance on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" on Comedy Central. In addition to the full episode, extended clips can be found at http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-may-4-2011/exclusive---david-barto....
