Grace Creek Media is an Annapolis-based “production, distribution and management company” that has featured a number of programs closely associated with neoconservatives and other rightist factions.[1] It was the publisher of TCSDaily (formerly Tech Central Station), an online journal that served as a platform for a number of prominent foreign policy hawks; it produced the now-defunct PBS show Think Tank, hosted by Ben Wattenberg, a scholar based at the American Enterprise Institute; and was the co-producer, with the George W. Bush Institute, of Ideas in Action, a Sunday morning show about “ideas and their consequences” hosted by former George W. Bush administration official James Glassman, a well-known conservative political talk show figure.

The president of Grace Creek Media is Andrew Walworth, a media entrepreneur who founded New River Media and has produced a number of PBS documentaries. As of 2017, the Vice President of Production is John Sorensen, a former documentary producer for TLC and A&E television. [2]

Grace Creek Media also helped produce the 2009 documentary “Fighting Words: A Tale of How Liberals Created Neo-Conservatism,” which is based on Ben Wattenberg’s political memoir of the same title. Among those interviewed in the documentary are Patrick Buchanan, Midge Decter, E.J. Dionne, Francis Fukuyama, Christopher Hitchens, Joshua Muravchik, James Q. Wilson, and James Woolsey.[3]

Other Grace Creek Media productions have included Sportskool, an on-demand cable sports network that provides “expert instruction and coaching for a wide range of sports and athletic activities”; Closer to Truth, a TV series exploring the existence of god; and Project Happiness, a feature length documentary that “follows a senior high school class from Mount Madonna School near Watsonville, California, on a journey to discover the true nature of human happiness.”[4]

From the Wires

Although a widespread movement has developed to fight climate change, no counterpart has emerged to take on the rising danger of nuclear disaster — yet.


U.S. supporters of Israel are in a bind: public opinion is changing; there are more actors publicly challenging Israel; and the crude, heavy-handed tactics they have successfully used in the past to silence criticism now only aggravate the situation.


As the civilian death toll from Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen grows and the backlash against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s role in Khashoggi’s murder escalates, former Sen. Norm Coleman’s control of Republican Party campaign purse strings positions him as a key influencer of Republican congressional action, or inaction, in curtailing the increasingly aggressive and reckless actions of Saudi Arabia.


Increasingly, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are positioned as rivals, each with pretensions to Middle Eastern influence or even hegemony. It’s not clear whether they can continue to coexist without one or the other—or both—backing down. This has made it more difficult for the United States to maintain its ties with both countries.


What does President Trump’s recent nomination of retired Army General John Abizaid to become the next U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia signify? Next to nothing — and arguably quite a lot.


The Donald Trump administration’s handling of nuclear negotiations with Saudi Arabia promises to lay bare some realities about security issues and nuclear programs in that part of the world that the administration has refused to acknowledge.


Eminent U.S. foreign policy expert Stephen Walt’s new book critique’s the “liberal hegemony” grand strategy that has dominated U.S. foreign policy since the end of the Cold War.
