RightNetwork is an exciting new site that will launch this summer. Actor Kelsey Grammer is a partner in the venture. Grammer says, “RightNetwork is filling a big gap with entertainment programs that combine compelling content with a perspective we don’t generally get from the media. We’re bringing outstanding talent and production values to our television, Internet and mobile platforms. I’m proud to be part of this team!”.
I first heard about RightNetwork from the nutroots on Twitter who are already fighting to shut down the new network. Why? Simply because they disagree. The first Amendment means nothing to these cowards:
"It's War! Help Beat Comcast/NBC Merger & Their New Right Wing Cable Network":
In the most despicable and arrogant gesture since the Citizen's United decision itself, Comcast is now partnering with Tea Baggers to create a purely right wing, cable and Internet outlet called the "Right Network"
How appalling, given that conservatives already outnumber liberals by 3-1 in the general media, and 20-1 on on talk radio. And of course, they already have the 24×7 Fox news channel. A right network almost seems redundant...
Yes, in the imaginary world in which conservatives outnumber liberals 3-1 in the general media, investors probably would see no reason to create a right-wing network. Alas, freedom-loving conservatives are incredibly underrepresented in the media on this planet.
When they launch, they'll have lots of content, since they've been embedded with the Tea Party Express for its tour across the country. The YouTube channel has video from key tea party locations.
They don't even try to hide it anymore. It's just outright, blatant partisanship and propaganda, brought to you by Comcast and the US Chamber of Commerce.
Note to libs: When you have an appealing, wholesome, mainstream product, there's no reason to hide.
