Murdoch's kids will take the network over and turn it into another heaping, steaming, smelly, revolting pile of liberalism. I predicted this feces follies when the story broke two weeks ago. The heirs are itching for power.
This has come to pass, and some conservatives were wondering, now what?
Talk of a new conservative news network swirls:
On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats.
A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.Liberal fat cats apparently do not exist.
Any conservative network would have to be online, or an established cable network purchased and re-purposed to news.
If it helps salve wounds, Fox News and the rest face the same loss of revenues from cord-cutting that ESPN suffers, albeit in smaller amounts. Cable customers pay Fox News about $2 a month, while ESPN receives $6. But news is much cheaper to produce (ESPN has to pay for the games it broadcasts), which means CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC can withstand cord-cutting far better than ESPN.
For conservatives online, the news outlets are many. Lucianne, Free Republic, Drudge, and Instapundit are my daily if not hourly reads.
Also, while the Murdoch Boys begin tossing credibility overboard, the station still has many good reporters on hand. Ignore Shep Smith. Hang on till James Rosen comes on.
Don't lose hope. The truth will out -- and it will set us free.
