Check out this new project:
An international news channel not beholden to corporations, governments, or advertisers? What a concept!
Check out their “birth of a network” video. Hell, all of their videos. It’s the best thing to happen to the media in a long time IMO…
That whole site is hilarious!
The endorsements are wonderful! You should know you have a problem when Phil Donahue is a big name endorsement of your cause. I thought between Oprah, Geraldo, and Springer, one of them would’ve killed him (directly or indirectly). Sorry, but as a general policy, I don’t partake of news and media sources endorsed by Phil Donahue.
My favorite quote:
“From my point of view, which is a conservative American point of view… The Real News is probably in a better position to be able to be unbiased because you don’t have government interventions. You will not be beholden to commercial interests.”

Impartial view. Hah! Unbiased and unbeholden. Haha!
$100M of “independent” financing over the next 5 yrs. hahaha!
“Democrats (67%) are the most likely to say tehy would contribute, while Republicans are the least likely to do so (27%). Independents come closer to Democrats on this with 48% saying they are likely to donate.”
“Hispanics are more likely (61%) than either whites (49%) or African Americans (46%) to say they would contribute. However, intensity is on the side of African Americans, with 29% saying they are very likely to donate compared to the 17% of Hispanics and 15% of whites who say they are very likely to do so.”
Hahahahahaha! It sounds like a left wing NPR which is pretty funny in-and-of itself.
