A Bloomberg film critic writer who attempted to smear the ‘Sound of Freedom’ film as a far right “QAnon dog whistle” is a spokesman for a pro-pedophile “Minor Attracted Person” (MAP) Advocacy Group.
The author of the recent hit piece is a writer named Noah Berlatsky, who was previously associated with an organization attempting to “normalize pedophilia.”
Those attacking the Sound of Freedom film appear to fall into the categories of either being misinformed, having a hidden agenda, or being advocates for pedophilia.
It appears that Berlatsky falls into the latter, since he is attacking the Sound of Freedom while pushing for pedophile rights.
Reporter Andy Ngo later pointed out that Noah Berlatsky was the spokesperson for M.A.P. (minor-attracted person) advocacy group, Prostasia.
Berlatsky is the Communications Director of Prostasia, a group pushing to normalize sexual attraction to children.
We also wanted to do a bit of digging on Berlatsky’s tweets, but his account blocked The Daily Fetched (See below)

Berlatsky’s Twitter bio:
Below is what Noah writes about “The Sound of Freedom.”
The film is controversial because the man the movie is about, former Homeland Security operative Tim Ballard, and the actor who plays him, Jim Caviezel, both have links to QAnon. Ballard has promoted the baseless claim that furniture retailer Wayfair was involved in child trafficking. Caviezel has spoken at multiple QAnon events. In an interview with former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, he promoted one of the cult’s most outrageous conspiracy theories, claiming that child traffickers drain their victim’s blood to create a serum to prevent aging.
Angel Studios, which created the thriller, insists that, despite these links, the movie itself isn’t related to QAnon. And after sitting through the 2-hour movie, I think Angel Studios has a point. The film doesn’t explicitly reference QAnon talking points. Instead, in many ways, it echoes and reproduces themes and tropes around trafficking that are common in mainstream Hollywood cinema. Sound of Freedom isn’t QAnon propaganda, exactly, but it shows how closely QAnon propaganda mirrors common popular pulp narratives.
Sound of Freedom is centered on the kidnapping of two young Honduran children, Miguel (played by Lucás Ávila) and Rocío (Cristal Aparicio). Agent Ballard becomes aware of their plight while staking out a child abuser in the US. Defying the Homeland Security bureaucracy, he sets up a series of sting operations in Colombia — the last of which leads him into rebel-controlled territory to save Rocío from a militia leader.
Although the movie is billed as being based on a true story, reporting suggests that Ballard frequently makes exaggerated claims and oversells his own contributions. In 2020, his organization, Operation Underground Railroad, was investigated for using false claims about its successes to raise money, though charges were never filed. (On Thursday, it was reported that he left the organization).
