You might remember I’ve mentioned what a bad idea it is for a major cable provider to buy NBC? Here’s the latest proof: Comcast is introducing a right-wing cable channel called “RightNetwork” – because, you know, all those liberal channels are just too infuriating to watch:
This one’s a show where wingers play poker and make fun of liberals – an hey, the ever-popular Andrew Breitbart! (No, this isn’t an Onion spoof.)
You remember Andrew Breitbart. He’s the guy who’s always wrong and never admits it. Apparently this is a quality that makes him well-suited to appear on countless “news” shows – but you know what low standards librul media has.
Our mission is clear: to entertain, engage and enlighten Americans who are looking for content that reflects and reinforces their perspective and worldview.
RightNetwork will become an integral, relevant piece of their
daily media consumption On e that consistently impacts the
political and cultural discussions of Americans. Accessible
anywhere, anytime, from every device.
[…] The lineup focuses on entertainment with Pro-America, Pro-Business, Pro-Military sensibilities — compelling content that inspires action, invites a response, and influences the national conversation.
This would be a good time to find another cable provider. Personally, I’d pay extra to a company if it meant I wasn’t supporting exploitive crap like this.
I urge you to file an FCC comment opposing the NBC purchase here.
