The mainstream media has taken to smearing people who make themselves vulnerable by using rhetoric that falls outside the Overton Window — that is, the range of topics and opinions that a person can express without being made the subject of controversy. When the left talks about “normalizing” things they like and fighting against the “perpetuation” of things they don’t like, what they are doing is trying to control the Overton Window.
Now, it may have occurred to you that a given media outlet does not have to actually record a person making controversial or shocking statements and claims that fall out of the Overton Window in order to smear and demonize them. They only need to catch people saying things that can be cut up so that it sounds like they are saying controversial things. Sounds dirty right? It is.
When this happens, it’s called a “hit piece.” So-called journalists in the mainstream media have become so accustomed to doing hit pieces on conservatives that they don’t even question the ethics of it anymore. They believe that if someone has conservative views they must be a racist, bigot, sexist or homophobe. Therefore, even if the person does not say something bigoted, it’s okay to cut the tape so that it sounds like they did.
Well, now we’re on to them- and we’re fighting back.
Here’s James O’Keef of Project Veritas with his advice for anyone who comes into even brief contact with members of the mainstream media.
