This episode tells the inside story of the movement's struggles and gains in the 11 years following the Reagan presidency.

• The rise of conservative media, including radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh
• Newt Gingrich's stunning upset in the 1994 elections with a "Republican Revolution" backed by a Contract with America
• George W. Bush's new kind of conservatism: "compassionate conservatism"
This "Fox News Reporting" hour features rare footage and exclusive interviews with William F. Buckley, Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, Steve Forbes, Jack Kemp, Pat Buchanan, James Baker, Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Sanford, and many others who tell their personal accounts of conservatism following the Reagan era.
