A former U.S.Marine, he is the Creator of The Minority Report Network. He is also the Founder and Managing Editor of the Network’s flagship site, www.theminorityreportblog.com, Former Director of New Media for Liberty.com, Former Director of New Media for Liberty First PAC, and the Former Chief Managing Editor of 73Wire.com. Steve is a well respected national conservative blogger who’s dedicated the past several years of his life advancing conservatism online. Recently Steve was instrumental in the development of Liberty.com, Liberty First PAC, The Patriot Caucus, the national campaign trail and grassroots news site73wire.com.

“I’ve manufactured controversies, done stunts, planted fake stories,” says Ryan Holiday, media strategist and author of new book, Trust Me I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator.

Holiday sat down with ReasonTV’s Tracy Oppenheimer to talk about his own experiences manipulating the media for clients like Tucker Max, and the insight he’s since gained into the new world of journalism.

“There’s no question that I think it’s great that people have access to publishing in a way they have never had before, but there is the law of unintended consequences and what that’s done in this case is make misinformation a lot easier,” says Holiday, “we’ve embraced this new technology, but we haven’t erected any defenses, made any changes or changed how we consume the news, or believe what we read based on these changes.”
