Media’s Power

By Gary Varvel

In Paul Harvey’s 1965 prophetic prose, “If I were the Devil,” he imagines what the devil would do to sabotage America. Harvey proposed “…What you see on the TV is the way to be.” He foresaw the power of TV to change the culture for the worse.

Does TV have the kind of power to change hearts and minds?

Obviously, advertisers think so based on the billions they spend each year. What most people don’t realize is that the entertainment industry has a devilish agenda. In Mark Dice’s book, ‘Hollywood Propaganda,’ he pulls back the curtain to show us that entertainment is a vehicle to influence social and political trends in order to fundamentally transform our culture.

Dice writes, “In 2014 UCLA opened the Skoll Center for Social Impact Entertainment (SIE) which boasts to be “the first of its kind dedicated solely to advancing the power of entertainment and performing arts to inspire social change.”

The program was started with a $10 million donation by billionaire Jeffrey Skoll, who made his money as the first president of e-Bay.

That’s not the only place this is happening. American University in Washington DC has the Center for Media & Social Impact dedicated to “create, study and showcase media for social impact.” What an impact is has had. Just look at the changes since Barack Obama was president.

Most TV viewers may not notice the leftist agenda pumped into the living rooms every night. Little by little, vile language and sex have become increasingly a part TV shows and movies desensitizing viewers evil behaviors. That desensitization changes the moral values of the masses. Besides training young filmmakers to create content with a leftist agenda, Dice writes that there are lobbying groups like GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) who aggressively push Hollywood producers to include gay characters in 20 percent of all films by 2021 and 50 percent by 2024.

Special interest groups use their power to get the media to promote abortion, climate change, Obamacare, social justice and push fringe political ideas in order to persuade the masses to accept immoral behaviors. Just to be clear, the technology is not good or evil. It is merely a method of communication.

The agenda depends on who is controlling it.

6 corporations control 90 percent of the media in America. It’s no surprise that they all promote the same progressive liberal agenda. Independent Christian filmmakers, like the Kendrick Brothers, the Burns Family, Dallas Jenkins or my son, Brett’s company House of Grace Films, have tried to offer an alternative to Hollywood propaganda but it takes money and there are very few wealthy Christian donors who have been willing to do what people like Jeffrey Skoll has done for the left.

As a result, we have witnessed the media’s impact as our citizens have become more wicked, evil, greedy, depraved, envious, murderous, deceitful, full of strife, malice and God-haters.

So how did Paul Harvey, in 1965, predict this outcome? Lamplighter’s Mark Hamby writes, “Perhaps the Devil himself listened to the broadcast.
