We all know that liberals control the media. But how did they get there?
They bullied, bought and lied. They took over newspapers, TV, Hollywood. And we let them get away with it. But how can an individual do something to help our side?
One easy, overlooked way is to write a letter to the editor. First, there is the largest newspaper, the Commercial Appeal. Letters in that publication are read by many people. Those who don’t know much about a topic might be surprised to agree with our conservative views. It also shows the media and our fellow citizens that there are a lot of us out here who support Republican issues, candidates and platforms. If an issue like Common Core gets a majority writing against, it is influential.
Certainly other less widely read publications can benefit from conservative value letter writers. It isn’t hard to cow some of these weak kneed reporters/editors. That’s how the Democrats have done it.
Then TV stations need to hear from us, too. Why not give them a call when an unfair report comes up? It might make them think about pulling a stunt like that the next time.
In 2014, keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to set the media straight. It’s an important election year for us locally, as well as at the federal level. What we do this year will certainly make a difference in every Memphian’s life.
