The Left Controls the Narrative So They Control the Debate

Written by Marilyn Assenheim on April 11, 2013

The latter: Senator Mitch McConnell’s (R. KY) offices were surreptitiously and illegally bugged. A private conversation was recorded and disseminated about a prospective contender for his Senate seat, actress Ashley Judd … from Tennessee. The mainstream media, print, radio and television, breathlessly reported the story. But what story was reported? That Senate Minority Leader McConnell had had a crime committed against him? No. The story was that Senator McConnell was indulging in “character assassination” against Ms. Judd. No one asked how character assassination could be possible when the private conversation was never made public by the tarred evildoers. No one mentioned that everything said about Ms. Judd (her mental illness, her bizarre attitudes about procreation and religion) in Senator McConnell’s office, were all statements that Ms. Judd had made about herself during interviews. No one mentioned that Richard Nixon, a Republican president, was sent packing, amidst universal howls of protest, for an identical crime. No. Because the crime was committed against Republicans the MMS has refused to recognize that illegality transpired at all. Instead, Senator McConnell has been mocked for his insistence that a crime was committed and for getting the FBI involved.

We already know that freedom of the press is the only Constitutional amendment that is untouchable, lies notwithstanding. So brazen and commonplace has this conviction become among the MMS that Mother Jones magazine, the periodical benefiting from the crime, displays no fear of prosecution. Instead, they arrogantly demand that Senator McConnell comment on the information illegally obtained by them. A faithful representation of the media skewing facts? And how.

Language matters. Actions, and inactions, have serious consequences. The longer we tolerate the left’s control of the narrative, the longer we tolerate a craven Republican leadership and the longer we accept leftist lies without dispute, the more difficult it will be to ever find truth … much less have any claim to a dispute.
