I hope they suffer a permanent herring loss

I never knew that founding a television network constituted this country being "farked up"

There's actually some decent historical stuff on Wealth TV.  Strange.

"It is getting really hard to find just the reliable, credible, fact-based news with substance," said Charles Herring, president of Herring Broadcasting, in an interview from CPAC, where he was setting up for the announcement. "The second component is to provide a platform where more voices can be heard, voices that are ignored, libertarian and conservative voices."

There is, of course, a rather prominent cable news network that already does such a thing, promising to report and let you decide. But Herring said Fox News is not as conservative as its liberal counterpart, MSNBC, is liberal, and that either way, Fox is a lone conservative voice in a wilderness of left-leaning outlets.

I think this applies.

That very loud and exasperated "OH COME ON!!" you just heard was from the offices of The Onion, who just saw even more of their planned satire made reality.

So Herring Broadcasting caters to fat cats, rather than fat dogs?

One America? The Amero crowd is going to have a field day with that one.

Libs are allergic to successful people.  They remind them of what they might have been had they not gotten a PHD in Social Work.

They had better not mock us Americans that exist on one cup of snow made coffee a day and bird ration Tuesdays..

meh, would have been funnier if they were the One News America Network

At&t U-Verse actually carries Wealth TV and I decided to check it out.

The program right now is about boating and the title of the program is (I kid you not)...Wet Dreams.

It makes sense, actually. while the 1% don't want the masses educated, they themselves should be smart so they can properly control them.

They made a television channel which is watched by 20 people. Now, they're planning to make another channel watched by those same 20 people.

I realized that my town is filled with people with more sense than money when I saw that the magazine rack at the local breakfast place is predominately filled with "Yachting" magazine.

Actually, libs are simply jealous of real Americans who have a channel devoted to spending money because if they hadn't gotten all gotten PhDs in soshulism they'd have money to pay for cable tv so they could watch channels about spending money in America.
 
2013-03-14 08:46:34 PM
I'm still watching Wealth TV and they had an ad on talking about it's CPAC coverage saying that this year's CPAC is "the most important political conference of the decade".

Oh this new channel is going to be sooo much fun to watch! U-Verse better pick this station up just for the lulz.

the funny thing is, they'll need the poors to watch or they won't succeed.

The power of Fox News, or any all news channel for that matter, is that they can convince their viewers that everything is terrible, all the time. How exactly are you going to do that to the uber-wealthy?

Easy.  Run stories suggesting the rabble are gettin' uppity and that every single measure that improves the quality of life for non-millionaires even a trifle is money stolen directly from their pockets.

And be sure to hammer home the point that Romney was ambushed by gotcha journalism.

People aren't understanding the headline correctly.

Wealth TV is for the rich, the news network is not.

I don't know. Fox Business tries to play a similar role but gets its ass handed to them by CNBC constantly.

This channel is destined to fail unless they run it on the cheap...which they probably will.

So they're going after Fox Business (which tries to be the Libertarian Fox News)?

Oh yeah...this channel is going to fail big time.
 
2013-03-14 08:57:44 PM
Actually, the thought that someone thinks Fox is too left-wing amuses me greatly.  This is going to be like Conservapedia On Ice.

If I had any way to get a job there, I would play Poe's Law like Joshua Bell plays a violin.  I would run nine fake stories and one real one, just to see if anyone could possibly tell the difference.
 
2013-03-14 08:58:09 PM
Sorry, but there is only so much wealth in the hands of the Tea Party and they're already straight out sending it off to the NRA, Fox News, Breitbart etc. I don't think they have enough disposable income to support yet another "give us your money or you're a bad American" outlet. Eventually something's got to give.

Nnn-yes, I do think the conservative media could use a bit more class and intelligence in its debate
 
2013-03-14 09:01:33 PM
So, will FOX and this new channel tear each other apart fighting for the aged and dwindling derpographic or will they use each other as sources for more specious 'some are reporting' herp?
I suspect heavy doses of both

Yeah but that's the thing...rich people aren't stupid. Well, some of them are I guess, but they're all probably watching Fox News religiously already. But if you had enough sense to make several million dollars, or whatever qualifies as "uber rich", chances are you know that the system is now so stacked in your favor that nothing short of all-out nuclear war is likely to seriously threaten your way of life.

This channel will be for Platinum members only. If you do not own a crystal palace built upon the slave labor of endangered Javan rhinos, please change the channel to "Cooking with Dirt! Cheap Dining for the Poors."

Is it 'possible' that this is the efforts of the monied interests in charge of the GOP to shed the 'lol faux news' stigmata and start a media wing that isn't tea-tarded?
 
2013-03-14 09:14:26 PM
"One America News Network" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it does sound better than their working title, "Rich, White, Privileged Teatard/Randroid News Network."
 
2013-03-14 09:15:19 PM
Don't you guys get it? This is clearly a liberal scheme. Think about it:

Herring. You know who love herring, particularly in the Spring? The Dutch. The most socialist people in Europe. This network's being created to siphon away viewers from the completely balanced FOX News. Thanks Obama...

There are no phD in social work programs in this country (at least there weren't 10 years ago)
