NXIVM operated several businesses to control its members, forcing them to work for 23 hours without pay. One of these was The Knife Media or The Knife. Short for The Knife of Aristotle, the site described itself on the NXIVM website as follows: “Knife Media is a digital news outlet that provides news without spin and rates media outlets for its level bias. Knife has Has a team of 15 editors, writers and collaborators [sic] Which are specialized in critical thinking, reasoning and analysis process of the company. ”This “analysis process” was devised by none other than Ranier, a self-described genius who graduated college with a 2.26 GPA. “You know, we get negative press, and I think I know where it comes from,” Raniere says Oath. “But the good side of it is to learn about it and see how it’s done and how it’s done me, I was able to come up with a useful toolset that can actually change media, and transform how people interact with media and data within media. ”

“I trained a group of people, in what we call logic, in logic or Raniere’s idea … The idea was to give every newspaper article a rating.“
In the film, Vicente says, “I was one of the founding members of The Knife.” “In short, it was a media company and the idea was to analyze the news for fairness – or lack of objectivity. I trained a group of people, which we call the logic of analysts — or Ranier’s ideas. We will talk about such prejudice in articles – slant, slant, the use of adjectives, basically talking about how subjective something was. The idea was to give a rating to every newspaper article. ”

Gould touted the media’s hazy “methodology” that Raniere developed, including: “spin, slant, how logical coverage is, and how accurate coverage is.” They then give a rating based on those four criteria.

“If you reduce everything to the simplest of things, you can say ‘a man raped a woman’ to ‘a man did something, a woman was involved in it’. When you take out all the sentimentality, you have no idea what exactly happened.“
Brainwashing their members of Central to NXIVM — and Raniere — was the idea of punishing people for showing high emotions, and seeing it as a sign of weakness. This was one of the governing principles of The Knife. “[The Knife] People had to be prepared for any negative press that would come against it [NXIVM], Because they will briefly abandon it for their sentimentality, ”Vicente says in The Vow. “The easiest thing to do is if you cut everything down, you ‘raped a woman’, ‘a man did something, including a woman.” When you take out all the sentimentality, you have no idea what has really happened. ”
