Cliff Kincaid is the director of Accuracy in Media Center for Investigative Journalism. He criticized recent liberal attempts to overturn the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, saying "The revelations of Manning's openly pro-homosexual conduct suggest that a more liberal Department of Defense policy, in deference to the wishes of the Commander-in-Chief, had already been in effect and has now backfired in a big way."
Kincaid has criticized the Obama administration, calling Obama an "agent of influence for the international Marxist movement" and proposing a House Internal Security Committee to investigate the "un-American activities" of the administration.
In 2006, Kincaid exposed the violation of a provision of the Louisiana ethics code. The state Louisiana Ethics Commission placed a $10,000 fine on Beth Courtney, the president and CEO of Louisiana Public Broadcasting, and her husband, Robert Louis "Bob" Courtney, who operates a Baton Rouge public relations firm and a film/video production company, for violation of the Louisiana ethics code. The complaint involved receiving payments from a private company, which hired Bob Courtney’s firm, and did business with a Louisiana public broadcasting entity under Beth Courtney's control. Under the state Code of Ethics, subcontractors and contractors must comply with the provision which forbids nepotism.The Courtneys did not contest the ethics board findings.
Prior to joining AIM, Cliff served on the staff of Human Events for several years and was an editorial writer and newsletter editor for former National Security Council staffer Oliver North at his Freedom Alliance educational foundation. He was a guest co-host on CNN’s Crossfire (filling in for Patrick J. Buchanan) in the 1980s, where he confronted the then-Libyan Ambassador to the U.N. with evidence of Libyan involvement in international terrorism. He currently hosts America's Survival TV, a channel that can be viewed on Roku. (Access Code USA123)
