Ben Howe is a writer and filmmaker who gained attention late in 2010 for a series of politically charged videos that went viral and helped him launch his production company Mister Smith Media, which was later renamed Howe Creative.
His videos have been seen by millions of viewers both online and on television. Ben’s unique style of storytelling not only created some of the most compelling political videos in the industry, but guided his directorial debut with the film “Bankrupt: How Cronyism and Corruption Brought Down Detroit,” released in 2014.
Prior to the election in 2016, Ben and his team released the controversial crowd-funded documentary, The Sociopath, currently distributed as part of RedBarre Media’s film catalogue. The film documented the rise of Donald Trump as a political force, interviewing experts and Trump supporters, and exposing the underbelly of racially motivated, nationalist support that were the pillars of his victory. It received national attention and accolades from influencers across the political and entertainment spectrum.
In addition to filmmaking, Ben is a prolific writer, speaker, and pundit. He is a Senior Contributing Editor at RedState.com, and has written guest columns at The Atlantic and Buzzfeed. He is currently writing a book titled “The Immoral Majority” (Published by Harper Collins and slated for release in early 2018) on the ever lowering standards of the evangelical right in their quest for Republican victory. He has appeared as a commentator on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, The Blaze TV as well as a number of online and radio outlets while engaging a large audience daily through his immensely popular twitter feed.
