If you are visiting The Victory For Liberty Center, you probably
already know that the news media carries water for the Left. What you
may not fully understand, is how they accomplish the task of subverting a
nation. The term "Corporate Left" could be applied to the news media
in addition to other incorporations and institutions. Journalists in a
sense function as tentacles for the Democrat Party and other Leftist
organizations by shifting the public perception of reality.
is a process by which potential legislation and other Leftist policies
are introduced and promoted. It is a simple process executed by various
means and by many journalists in many positions. At the moment, this
process is being used to promote gun control policies in the wake of the
Sandy Hook Massacre.
Here is a summary of the process:
A mountain of emotion is built regarding specific problems or issues. A
real crisis does not need to exist. All the news media needs to do is
to convince their viewers and readers that a crisis exists which demands
urgent and sudden action.
2. The news media presents
the Leftist position as an excellent option to solve problems. Other
possible solutions are presented in an attempt to fake objectivity, but
ultimately these other solutions (the ones put forward by Conservatives
and Libertarians) are dismissed and diminished. The agenda of Leftist
Politicians is presented long before they step up to a podium because it
was first presented by their operatives in the mass media.
A false narrative is constructed in which the Left is compassionate,

opposition, the false narrative also presents a fictitious view of
reality in which the Leftist agenda is truth.
opponents of Leftist policy are ridiculed, dehumanized, and demonized.

policy is advanced. The public is told that the policies of the Left
are the will of "the people." Often Leftist policy is introduced with
words like: "There are new calls for gun control," or "The public is
demanding that taxes be increased on higher income brackets."

tactics have worked for the Left. It is time for us to better
understand them, and to learn how to combat them. One of the most
effective means of combating the Leftist news media, is to instill the
perception in the public that it is corrupt, dishonest, and
manipulative. Once our friends and neighbors are enlightened regarding
the news media, the steps listed above will loose their effectiveness.
It is critical that we spread the word not necessarily about what the
news media does, but how they do it. It is up to us to spread what we
