What’s New at LNN?
by Sam Antonio, Producer
During the many years I spent as a JBS Field Coordinator, I heard repeatedly from members about the great need for the Society to have its own television or radio show. Unfortunately, the start-up costs would have been prohibitive, along with the fact that the federal government, by way of the Federal Communications Commission, would ultimately control our message.
But technology has now allowed us to bypass costs and control. Put simply, the Internet has given The John Birch Society a tremendous opportunity to educate and inform our fellow citizens — and we are working to take full advantage of it.
As a result, Liberty News Network (LNN) is now equipped with a professional film studio complete with digital cameras, lighting, green screen, Apple computers, and professional film-editing software. In addition, we are able to broadcast over the Internet free of any government censorship (the reason the federal government is pushing hard for “net neutrality”).
Currently LNN has two regularly scheduled shows. JBS Chief Executive Officer Art Thompson offers a “review of the news” every Monday and Andy Ramirez offers his insights on illegal immigration as LNN’s national correspondent on homeland security. We also have other organizations, such as Gun Owners of America, that have kindly given their permission to rebroadcast their content on our site.
As the new producer for LNN, I am committed to providing exclusive and compelling content that members and the general public will find engaging, educational and informative. For example, we have posted exclusive videos, such as JBS President John F. McManus’ recent speech, “A Hard Look at the United Nations,” and Brian Farmer’s “The Truth about Labor Unions.” The latter exposes the economic fallacies of labor unions.
Help us grow LNN by recommending the website to your family, friends, and neighbors. Help us expand in influence by sharing our videos via Twitter and Facebook. Together we can end the mainstream media monotony.
Be sure to make Liberty News Network your first place on the web for analysis of the news.
