Journalism is dead – it’s all media activism now. In fact, we should stop calling them journalists and call them Media Activists – or if there’s a better term we’d love to hear it.
The media has gotten SO stupid that it’s tough to tell sincere from satire. So we start out with a game – Salon.com tweets – real or satire. The real ones are so much worse than you think.
Then we move on to discuss the 7 stages of liberal legal action, and how we can use that framework to make sure we are fighting the battle based on the step we’re currently IN not the one we wish we were still in.
It’s all in the podcast
- From The Conservative Union – Leslie and Ryan
- From Free Radical Network – Felicia and JD
- From The Party of Choice – Andy and Cori

Join the weekly discussion about solving conservative messaging problems
A collaborative project of Free Radical Network, The Party of Choice, and The Conservative Union. Members of each group come together to discuss messaging successes, failures, and strategies in an effort to make ourselves, and the movement as a whole, better at selling Liberty.
“Because if we can’t sell Liberty, we suck; but if we can’t learn how to sell Liberty, we are defeated”
