Move Over, Fox News: Another Conservative TV News Net Is About to Launch

March 14, 2013  •  Post A Comment

A new cable channel is set to launch soon that could syphon off some of what Fox News has proved is a sizable audience for a right-leaning take on the news.

Deadline.com reports that One America News, from the Washington Times and the owner of WealthTV, is being readied for a July 1 launch. Citing a piece in The Wall Street Journal, the report says the channel will deliver a 24-hour lineup of news and conservative political talk.

“Charles Herring, president of One America News, says the San Diego-based network expects to start with modest distribution between 10 million and 20 million homes,” Deadline reports. “Herring said his family’s Herring Broadcasting is investing ‘hundreds of millions’ of dollars into what he describes as a much-needed alternative to the current situation.”

Said Herring: “MSNBC skews left, and some argue that CNN skews left,” while only Fox News “skews right.”

Herring is quoted in the piece as saying he plans “to open up another front and give independents, libertarians and all kind of different voices under the conservative umbrella an opportunity to express themselves.”

The channel will use the Washington Times as its D.C. bureau, the report notes, with an initial staff of 30 to 40 people.

  1. So put one TV in each corner of your room with each channel on one for Surround Sound bullsh*t!

  2. if the channel will be as successful as wealth then it will get a total of 1 viewer…the guy in the control room

  3. I wish I knew there was a Wealth TV as I could sure use some.

  4. Because, of course only liberals and progressives tell the truth. Think as they do or be deemed an idiot, a loser, a bigot, a homophobe, ad infinitum. Isn’t that right Tim?

  5. Well, Rob, he said four. So let’s count them. Come on, Rob, count with me. That’s CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and this new station. So that’s half liberal and half conservative, yes Rob? Did you make it all the way to four with me? Are you stuck on three? It’s the one after two.
    And you noticed that Tim mentioned surround sound, so it would appear that he was implying the bullshit was coming from all four channels, do you agree? Rob are you still stuck on two? It’s the one after one.

  6. CNN’s problem isn’t that it leans left. CNN’s problem is that it strives to balance itself between right and left and show all sides to a story and offend no one. So instead, CNN tells no stories at all.
    Of course, now that that bullet-headed troll, Jeff Zucker, is in charge, all bets are off. God only knows what CNN will morph into.

  7. Thanks for explaining that for me Warren. I really get tired of pointing out to pointed heads that it is all info-tainment crap tainted with slanted political viewpoints, eg: bullsh*t.
    Bring back the fairness doctrine, which worked to maintain a even handed approach to every public affairs issue on every channel. Opinions are welcome as long as they are labelled as such.
    It’s the main cause for us not having a working government anymore and a very uninformed public.

  8. Tim I agree with you, but all of you have very good points about what is going on. You will, at least, have 4.1 bull coming out of all speakers. There will be no information!
