Lefty writers and bloggers and experts are just quoted as writers, bloggers, or experts. Conservatives are ALWAYS given the adjective “conservative consultant” or “ultra-conservative blog”. We sometimes do the same – describing our products as “the conservative daily show” or whatever. The media separates us out, otherizing us. Why do we have to do the same? And is it sometimes helpful? We had a good discussion about the good and bad of that. It all depends on context.
Then we had a rather interesting discussion about music and whether or not you can keep listening to an artist after you know they have crazy politics.
It’s all in the podcast

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”
