This article is re-posted from The Victory For Liberty Center. It is part of an on-going series.
An important step in limiting the public's receptiveness to the news
media's attacks on liberty is to demonstrate that the news media is an
extension of the Democrat Party. This fact must be spread so that the
citizenry are able to resist the propaganda that the news media spreads.
is no need for a propaganda department. Those politicians who seek to
limit or end liberty have no need of a propaganda arm (though many would
consider the Press Secretary to be a propagandist). The news media
achieves these ends for them. Journalists with "thrills up their legs"
for Leftist causes promote the enemies of liberty with biased
journalism, false narratives, fake data, the illusion of public
consensus, the devaluation of the American system, and the proposal of
Leftist policies as solutions while Conservative and Libertarian
proposals are shunned.
In an early post, the basic
methodology of the news media's campaign against liberty was revealed
(see the post on January 1, 2013). These processes executed by
journalists of all types and levels are used constantly to create the
false image of the Left's plan as workable, just, and noble. On the
contrary, these poisonous policies are geared toward destroying our
nation's system, and building in its place a Leftist Tower of Babel.
of the key measures taken by the news media with regards to the
President, is that they have created the myth that he is not actually
ruling. Therefore, he has no actual responsibility. Nothing is blamed
on him. He is framed as the hero seeking to overthrow an unjust system
that is causing pain and class-struggle. The problems generated by his
party are blamed on The Constitution, the top earners, and Republicans.
The President is never wrong, only misunderstood. He simply has not
been able to rule yet, and has no part in the continuously sluggish
economy, rising healthcare premiums, and the erosion of liberty. He is
given a free pass. He is truly a mythical character in the news media.
when a Republican politician offers resistance to Leftist policy (like
Rand Paul), they are framed as "extreme." Only those Republicans who
have been neutered and seek compromise at every turn are spared
scrutiny. This is how the news media is seeking to change the
Republican Party. There are two effects that come from this
nominalization: 1.) A lack of support from Libertarian and Conservative
voters due to the impurity and perceived similarity of Republicans to
Democrats. 2.) The slow erosion of the principles of liberty that exist
within the Republican Party platform. Indeed, the news media's
subversive campaign has taken its toll on the Republican Party, which it
falsely frames as old fashioned (as if everything old fashioned is
bad), racist, bigoted, fear mongering, party-poopers.
the public begins to see that the majority of the news media serves as a
propaganda machine for the Administration and Democrat Party, then they
will be more skeptical, and far less receptive to the news media's
onslaught against this nation and its liberty.
