Amber Lyon to Join Ben Swann's Truth in Media Project Launch!

The very awesome Judge Jim Gray will also be joining Ben Swann's event on the 26th, but I'm spazzed out excited about Amber Lyon being a part of this!

http://benswann.com/ben-swann-live-events/

"Amber Lyon is an investigative journalist and photographer. She is known for her work reporting human rights abuses against pro-democracy protesters in Bahrain, and police brutality against protesters in the United States. She described her investigation of how the US ally Bahrain was committing human rights abuses, but said that CNN and the US government pressured her to suppress the news."

Liberty IS Rising!

Ben Swann New Hampshire event

So I watched the Ben Swann project event stream from New Hampshire on ustream yesterday. There was some brief mention of Amber Lyon joining by video early on....I think Jesse Ventura's son mentioned it AND the event announcement stated it as well. But no such video chat occurred, the event went along till the end & nothing about Amber Lyon was ever mentioned till the end.

What's the deal, is she still part of the project or has dropped out? Or maybe it was just some technical glitch which I'm reading too much into - simply because they didn't bother clarifying anything about her?

At the New Hampshire event

I noticed that too. Huh. I wasn't sure if it was going to be a video or a skyping for her.

I love John B Wells and coast to coast AM! The numbers will swell with Ben Swann appearing on coast to coast. Someone please post a link to the show!

Good stuff Zak. Give me a call if you're in Seattle.

Did you hear Ben Swann on Coast to Coast last weekend?

It was one of the best Coast to Coast shows ever.

Ben Swann "gets it."

Some unsolicited advice....

Facts are uninspiring.

I understand all the emphasis on investigative journalism, but in the way of constructive criticism I'm just offering the idea that people aren't, on average, very interested in facts.

As I've said elsewhere, people want personality and sensationalism. If you're not offering some measure of entertainment value for its own sake, success is very unlikely.

You guys need to be aware of this going forward.

I think there was some misreading of Ben Swann's initial popularity by you all. He was a hit in the liberty community not because he was saying anything new, but because liberty people imagined the uninitiated hearing the message. That is/was the key to Ron Paul's popularity too. And, unless some novel elements are introduced, I expect mediocre results, in terms of impact, from Ron Paul's new media project.

If you want to get everyone excited, figure out a way to reach people outside the closed loop of the already-curious Internet audience.

Whatever you may think of them, Alex Jones, Molynuex, Tom Woods, the Free Talk Live guys, numerous podcasters, and Rand for that matter, are managing to feed liberty ideas to broader audiences...mostly on the basis of personality and sensationalism.

We're

On it;)

In support of Amber: I heard

In support of Amber: I heard her on Joe Rogan and AJ. She needs more credit and support than she already has. She worked in the belly of the beast and then had the guts to say, "Wait a sec, this isn't right!" Not many have the guts or would risk their careers.

Copied and pasted from Coast to Coast's site- TONIGHT!

Truth in Media
Date: 07-20-13
Host: John B. Wells
Guests: Ben Swann

Investigative journalist Ben Swann joins John B. Wells to discuss how our culture has become truth deficient. According to Swann, the historical centers of truth have broken down, and the average US citizen has lost their voice to monied power, and voters are disenfranchised from the party system.
-----

It doesn't say how long they will go on together, but with no other guests mentioned, it will be likely at least two hours. Nice, eh?!

Great timing, Zak!

Amber is awesome, right up there with Ben, in my Liberty-rating system! I'm sure Ben will be talking about her and Judge Gray in the course of his time there on with the great, John B. Wells, no less.

The best radio platform, with one of my favorite hosts, with hours for Ben Swann and him to discuss freely what's REALLY going on in the news media arena and the world;...does it get ANY better? Yes, it does! It's happening just hours from now!

And we now have Tyrel Ventura (Jesse's son, and awesome guy in his own right) flying in to be a part of this event too!

I remember

her. Good to see them teaming up. I wonder how or if it will compliment RP's venture. I guess the more the merrier.

The one ray of hope is that more and more people are losing faith in "traditional" forms of media. It's still a formidable behemoth that must be overcome (as evidenced by the giant shiny MSM lures hanging out of some people's mouths)

I'm definitely a believer

In the more the merrier!
