I didn’t hide who I was in doing these interviews. I told them my name, my legal background, and what my book was about. They granted me interviews because they are proud of their propagandizing efforts. If they had known I was a conservative, would they have let me through the door? Some of them would have. But others probably assumed that because of my Jewish last name and my Harvard Law baseball cap, I was a liberal. More than that, they likely assumed that because I was in Hollywood in the first place, I was a liberal.

Now, we’ve got the goods. The biggest names in television over the past few decades – the people who made your favorite shows – told me that they propagandize, they do it purposefully but subtly, and they do it because they feel a moral need to do it.

Over the next days, we are going to roll out the tape. We’re going to do it from multiple directions, and we’re going to do it in their own house organs. They’re going to have to respond.

Conservatives take heed: the battle has now begun. The entertainment industry is more powerful by multiples than the liberal news media. That’s because even conservatives will watch liberal shows, where few conservatives would watch CNN. We’ll all go see a popcorn flick, even if it’s Avatar, and even if it’s telling us and our children that the American military is imperialistic and evil. That has an impact.

Now we can take our culture back. Culture is the hardware – politics is the software. If we want to take our country back, we need to start by reclaiming our cultural heritage. Primetime Propaganda starts that work.

Then, if you want to do more, visit Declaration Entertainment to get involved in the process of making conservative entertainment a reality. We’re conservatives – that means we compete in the marketplace rather than regulating it or boycotting it. They’ve created a market inefficiency we’re going to exploit.

But first, read up on the conflict by picking up a copy of Primetime Propaganda. Find out what you’re watching – from the inside – and find out and why it’s so insidious. The number one tool in the left’s arsenal is the television industry. Let’s take that weapon out of their hands.
