Elisha Krauss Discusses Liberal Media Hypocrisy, Conservative Long-Game

Staff writer for TruthRevolt and co-host of The Morning Answer, Elisha Krauss appeared on The Glazov Gang Thursday to talk about her experience in conservative media, the impact of TruthRevolt, and the hypocrisy of liberal media.

Krauss began by explaining her role at TruthRevolt and providing some background on her role in conservative media, which including working seven years behind the scenes with the Sean Hannity show, now playing a more prominent role on the show. Krauss stated that she finds it interesting that the many of the left bash Fox News and conservative talk radio even though “we’re very open about our beliefs and what we get paid to do.”

Krauss: But what is so amazing to me is that people like Ed Schultz or Al Sharpton or Chris Matthews, who I have to watch every single day, pretend to be fair and balanced and pretend to be anchors and pretend to be politically savvy human beings, when they’re really just liberal talking heads.  

Krauss then commented on the role of TruthRevolt in “exposing a lot of this media information.” When Glazov asked her to comment on why conservatives have taken so long to push back culturally, Krauss argued that she believes it’s largely because many conservatives simply do not have the time or inclination to participate politically to the same degree or manner as the left. She states that we need to elect leaders that are able to balance both the personal and political priorities of the conservative base and combat the discouragement many conservatives feel from the last election cycle.

Krauss: I think really the last couple of election cycles have really disappointed conservatives, and they’ve been discouraged and kind of feel like the underdog with no chance of winning. The Horowtiz Foundation and TruthRevolt and this resurgence of talk radio’s popularity, and all these other aspects out there in politics right now, hopefully will light a fire under people’s butts to get involved and to make a change.

Krauss and Glazov then moved on to discuss the need for conservatives to see the political fight as a “long game” rather than being short-sighted in our goals, addressing some practical approaches the conservative movement can take to win the political and cultural argument, including the importance of conservatism presenting a fresh face and perspective to the new generation.
