Temple Kung Fool: questions and answers about Knife Media

by Temple Kung Fool

What makes The Knife different from other media companies?

As far as we know, we are the only company that analyzes the spin, slant and logic of news coverage based on consistent standards. We provide a system of analysis with unique ratings and perspectives that inspire ethics and critical thought. Additionally, we are not supported in any way by advertisers or outside companies, so our only loyalty is to our mission and our customers.Response: It is likely a fact that you are the only company that analyzes spin, slant and logic based on your cult leader’s teachings and standards. The rest of the world cannot understand your jargon, standards or ethics but it is likely true that you apply the techniques consistently. Has The Knife Media tested the facts regarding articles written about NXIVM, Keith Raniere, or DOS? How can you take the bias out of the herd mentality of the brainwashed experts working at The Knife Media?


Why is it important that the news industry have standards?

Whether we like it or not, the news is a powerful force in our world. It shapes and is shaped by the public, informs policy decisions, and has become more than ever the real-time recording instrument of our collective history. If humankind were to vanish tomorrow, and future visitors were to find the records of our civilization, would you feel good about the records they would find? We at The Knife are committed to truth, honor, and the preservation of a human legacy of which all people can feel proud.

Response: I think the aliens would laugh their asses off reading The Knife or find it very confusing why anyone would waste their time reading critiques written by cult followers. Basically, nothing coming from Keith Raniere’s organizations is important other than bringing their criminal abuses to an end and calling him out for the fraud that he is. The Knife Media tries to paint itself as ethical. My guess is, it’s just another Keith Raniere multi level marketing scam, with a little cult and sex mixed in to spice it up.

What values am I supporting by being a Knife subscriber?

As a subscriber, you are supporting our mission of bringing ethics to media, as well as making a personal commitment to raising awareness and critical thought. In a general sense, you are upholding values of honor, truth, ethics, and the preservation of history. More specifically you are supporting a movement that seeks to hold news agencies accountable for what they write and puts the power back into the hands of the people they serve.

Response: If you can do a complete audit of the Frank Report articles, I’d appreciate it. Other than that, you are not ethical and your mission is to recruit people and control money. Be honest, it is much more palatable.

Nicki Clyne is the third highest ranked person at the Knife. She earns $15 per hour, according to a source familiar with pay scales at the Knife.

How do you choose which sources to include in your analyses?

We analyze the largest and most influential U.S. media outlets, as well as other important English-language outlets. “The Media” section on our homepage displays the nine outlets that we analyze most frequently.

Response: It does not matter what sources you criticize when you have no credibility. It is why criminals make unreliable witnesses and are not to be trusted.

How many people does it take to analyze one story?

It can take up to 12 different people and 62 man hours to produce a full analysis of a story.

Response: How many cult follows does it take to write a piece of total garbage, apparently 12 people. None of these people have enough objectivity or training to critique their own cult, so how likely is it they can figure out anything else in life?

Other than being DOS Slave or Society of Cuckold members, what qualifications do these $12 an hour analysts and slant experts have?

Where does the money from my subscription go?

We have a dedicated and growing team of analysts who work diligently every day to bring you detailed analyses of breaking news. We rely solely on revenue from subscribers to support their work, so all the money we earn through subscriptions goes directly to improving and maintaining our product and supporting the team.

Response: Tell the truth, the money goes to Keith Raniere and his cult organizations.

Logic, Spin & Data My A@@
Logic, Spin & Data My A@@
6 years ago

It amazes me that these people say they are taught logical thinking skills in NXIVN but they all refuse to take in any information after masses of their “before they leave the cult” friends finally depart.

What happens to their ability to take in data when so many have walk out the doors saying there is danger amongst the leadership?

Is there something implanted in their brains during trainings & EM’s that stops their abilities to ask questions or seek out information from those who have left? Doesn’t NXIVM teach it’s good to take in data to make an informed decision?

How can so many people over so many years be so wrong (incorrect). Do those that left over the years share the same Ethical Breach?

Within the last year 400 have left the “burning building”, yet others who remain and refuse to check out the SPIN, LOGIC OR DATA of WHY. Really!!!

The Knief & its staff is a total joke. All NXIVM insiders, all paid by either Clair or someone one staff of the Knief.

We all know Rosa Laura has her father’s money.

Jens Gould’s father past away last year & rumor has it, left him a sizable trust fund. Let’s just hope Keith doesn’t talk him into investing it for him & his brother like he did Clare & Sara money. It will be gone before he knows it.

The Knief has some paid for subscribers by NXIVN members, family & friends. Is it enough to pay all their staff without dipping into other trust funds? Questionable, as it would be the first profitable side business created by a NXIVM member.

How about trying to sign up for The Knief Frank & will they let you?

HahahAhahaha. The Knife. Stupidest idea ever. Bahahahahahahahaha. Things I would pay for before paying for the knife:

– having an alligator bite my hand
– putting a saddle on a great white and riding it
– having a student dentist give me multiple root canals when I don’t need one
And pretty much anything else

Knifers or whatever you call yourselves you are the joke that keeps on giving. Hahahaha

You couldn’t cut through butter. (Or margarine).

Who subscribes to you other than yourselves? Bahahahahahahahaha

The truth about Jens
6 years ago

The most disappointing person in all of this is Jens. He was a real journalist and is turning a blind eye to a psychopath. Once Keith is brought to justice and the organization crumbles, Jens should never be allowed to work in journalism again. Might be more suited to take your burger order or to clean up the mess in aisle 5 at Whole Foods.

The “wise” career choice of Nicki Clyne. She went from acting on a relatively popular show, and certainly making more than $15 phr, to fucking a cult leader and pretending she has the experience and training to analyze the media while labeling herself as an analyst for an organization that is just another front group for VanDouche’s cult.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
