James Patrick Riley, star/creator/director of the Conservative-principled series “Courage, New Hampshire”, has some excellent ideas about starting up a “New Media” television and film industry and basically all he needs are the backers.

What follows is a post Mr. Riley wrote on Facebook offering his 13-point plan about how to re-tool and redefine some of the “characters” portrayed in TV and movies.  Some of it may seem outrageous (see #5), however if you consider the way Conservatives and Judeo-Christians have been portrayed in the media throughout the years, changing the narrative is not so “outrageous” after all.

James was generous enough to submit his ideas to

“Barack Obama is the result of bad storytelling; Joy Behar is the result of witless, formulaic Hollywood entertainment that demonizes enterprise and mocks the values that made America great.

I’m asking Conservative backers to give Jonathan Wilson, Frances Romero Mena and myself a network–put your money where your mouth is–and in a few years, the voters will start becoming both more intelligent and more honorable.

Here’s the Style Memo for the new network:

1. Make all bureaucrats look greedy and dumb and ugly

2. Make men of commerce good looking, compassionate, and funny.

3. Make atheists look silly and petty — because they are.

4. Make people of faith look more attractive and peaceful and intelligent than their faithless counterparts (because it’s true).

5. Take justice into your own hands and beat the crap out of rapists, child molesters and over-reaching civil servants.

6. Make personal injury attorneys look like demons out of the pit of hell.

7. Portray attractive women as encouraging to their husbands, rooting for their success, and even obedient to them, proudly obedient, because they cherish what they are building together. Families should be seen as the winning team — again, because it’s true.

8. Make the slutty girls ugly and the virtuous girls pretty, funny, and magnetic.

9. Make anyone who doesn’t want to own a gun pay the price for it. (Make them look like the idiots they are.)

10. Portray old hippies and New Agers as pathetic and smelly.

11. Make all Muslims look and act like Muslims. (Be brave.)

12. Make environmentalists responsible for people losing their jobs.

13. Make Conservatives appear to be real; let them laugh, dance, drink, and have fights with each other — because that’s true too.

Seriously—if any Conservatives with money want to build a NEW Media Empire based on these principles, contact James Patrick Riley at  You’ve already got a built-in audience of approximately 50% of Conservative Americans ready and willing to support you!

  1. Re: James Patrick Riley’s point 5:

    “5. Take justice into your own hands and beat the crap out of rapists, child molesters and over-reaching civil servants.”

    While I am in full agreement regarding (swift and appropriate) punishment of the guilty, as Christians we need to be careful not to circumvent God’s biblical prescriptions and the laws we derive from them regarding personal vengeance and the justice system—

    Romans 12:19

    Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

    Deuteronomy 16:18-19


    18 “You shall appoint judges and officers in all your towns that the Lord your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 19 You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous.

    I think it would be helpful if Mr. Riley reworked his fifth point.

    • Robert — the demands of drama and the demands of “real life,” are, of course, slightly different. Of course, all conservatives and people of faith should have devotion to the “rule of law,” but when convicted murderers and rapists are maintained in expensive prison systems for years, there is a natural, and righteous, desire for justice that is never satisfied. I would maintain that the bloated proceduralism of our system is actually the greater violation of God’s law, than, say, the Hebrew midwife who violates the law by refusing to obey Pharaoh. In other words, when two sets of law come into conflict, the purpose of the Christian dramatist is to find some plausible way of God’s law being rewarded, as opposed to man’s.

    I don’t think 50% of Conservative Americans is all that many…

  3. Leslie says:

    This post doesn’t reflect any Christian principles at all. In fact it is petty, bitter and mean spirited. One should be above the fray, not reveling in ‘getting back’ at the other side. Otherwise, what would be the point of creating an entirely new network that would merely be the opposite side of the same coin of that which you criticize?

  4. @James — Which is why I said “While I am in full agreement regarding (swift and appropriate) punishment of the guilty…”

    Turning the tables on the left. Doing opposite of what they do to us. Brilliant!

  6. giley1 says:

    To turn things around is going to take someone that has the strength and fortitude to overcome the deeply rooted liberal distorted media. Socialism has reached every aspect of our lives. Progressives have to exposed for the damage that they are doing to our country our values and our religious freedoms.

  7. trodaball says:

    Americans, especially the young desperately need to again see those who possess virtues and live by the Judeo-Christian values which made our nation special. I support this effort. Our popular culture, the MSM and entertainment industry is taking us down the toilet. Oh, my addition to the list would to portray parents as more intelligent than their children. As opposed to the kids always being superior in wit, sarcasm and brains, while parents are clumsy, dim and taking orders from their brats. I am resigned to watching TCM movies to enjoy the shared respect and values of yesteryear.

  8. i don’t have much, but i’m on board for shares of the new corporation.

    Seriously! Call the network Enterprise. Make a show that is about building a business and what it takes, where stuff comes from, who gets hired, who does PR, who manages, who does finance, etc. And show they are people who work. Show the people on the production line, why they get paid what they do, and make a product we can buy in the store.
