We may have to start Unauthorized News

It looks as if the Republican Establishment is making a run at OANN:
Allies of President Trump are pursuing an effort to acquire right-leaning news channel One America News Network, according to people familiar with the matter, in a bid to shake up a conservative media market that has been dominated by Fox News. The investment firm Hicks Equity Partners is looking to acquire the channel and is pitching other wealthy GOP donors to arrange a bid of roughly $250 million for the channel’s parent company, the people said. The firm is owned by the family of Thomas Hicks Jr., co-chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Because that's just what we need, one more outlet repeating the mainstream narrative. The RNC group - who almost certainly are not genuine "allies of President Trump" - say they want to buy OANN to "compete" with Fox News. Which is precisely the opposite of their intentions. The next step would be a merger with Fox, or a sale to Warner or the Devil Mouse.

This is all about control, not competition.

Please do. I would love to have a facts only journalist reporting to cleanse the palette from all the editorials that pass for news these days.

Were UANews to materialize, I would find myself watching a news program for the first time in two decades.

Yes. Trouble is, who'll be the reporters?

Blogger Stilicho January 12, 2020 7:19 AM  

The VFM will report, the SDL will deciden and the Dread Ilk will grimly approve. Don't you know how any of this works?

p.s. And Zammy gets his own show. Don't fight it. It will happen. Inevitable.

Closing access to a market (buying it out) doesn't eliminate the participants in it. Of course we all know that MSM is being propped up by special interests with deep pockets. Fox News may be the lesser of evils but it's still fake news.

That's the real issue with any Right wing news agency.

Almost all of the original content is from hostile outlets like Reuters, AP, etc.

Right wing news just aggregates for the most part and puts a different spin on the content. They take somebody else's story and rewrite it.

But they don't produce the original content.

Which means they are working with material based on a paradigm that is hostile to us.

It's an entirely defensive game.

@6 Isn't Prince Harry looking for a job? Think of the ratings!

Blogger Stilicho January 12, 2020 7:51 AM  

The Sunday morning edition of "compost your enemies" will be a breakout hit which will ultimately eclipse Meet The Press.

The ATF show will come back if Nate can be kept out of a certain shipping container (or kept in a shipping container...I get confused).

BB will turn "Conspiracy Queries" into a sunday night show that goes up against 60 Minutes (and whatever appears for the 2 hours following 60 Minutes).

Lind and Van Creveld will host a show entitled "The 4th GW Estate".

El Borak's daughter will review the MSM offerings of the week (using the Chili scale).

Coddington will have to have a show called "the Ladle" where he keeps bears occupied between streams (otherwise they tend to get restless and cause mayhem).

Shapiru will apply for job. Promocodes "sheets".

You get the idea.

I have a few hundies ready for this new project. Really looking forward to it. St. Efan would be a great host.

Pity the fool that signs up to OANN. OR any news network for that matter. If you haven't figured out that all news is essentially fake news, particularly in the light of what we have seen in the last few years, I don't know what to tell you. You're a dumbass at best.

Blogger Stilicho January 12, 2020 8:22 AM  

The GOPe group could rename OANN the OENN (one establishment news network).

One cabal to rule them all
One cabal to mind them
One cabal to bring them all
And in the darkness blind them

It’s a shame Nickels proved to be a shameless brat. While a twenty year old would not be an ideal person to be reporting news to the UA demographic, Fuentes does have good camera presence and his stream from the handful of times I watched it did have the newsroom feel. More importantly, his little groyper army proved to be very responsive and mobile.

How did you get feet on the ground to actually investigate stories? Recruit an army of Zoomer Delta volunteers. They’re energetic and have time on their hands. Just make sure they’re not d-bags and/or flaming gays...

...unless Milo wanted to read the news. As much as gays are intolerable, a Milo news show would be entertaining and hilarious.

Blogger Brant Thacker January 12, 2020 9:28 AM  

Milo is already doing this. Friday night’s all right is Milo’s show and it’s is hilarious. 2nd only to the darkstream of course.

I like the Delta volunteer idea. Someone who can record an event, add 5-6 paragraph report or 5 minute summary, keep it facts as-is, and post. Find a way to pay a stringer fee for the rights? The IG political scale of 0-9 would be excellent way to pick and adjust preferences.

All done on subscription. Fees for a day, week, month, year? Someone would get an intro page and need to pay to get access. Comparing broadcast TV, YT and UATV, you get just what you pay for. It costs real money to get bandwidth, storage and servers, and use/debug good SW to fulfill user needs.

TruNews, from pastor Rick Wiles, is the single most honest, hardest-hitting news show. Excellent app, too.

Vox you have enough direct experience of the media field, broad familiarity of contemporary writers on the right, and tech business management experience that you'd have a good shot at UAN if you chose to pursue it.

Being in their arena may send the media journalists into a spiral, just set a hotkey for deleting emails on the WarMouse and you're good.

Something involving Qanon analysis weekly, or breaking news as it happens, would have a built-in audience. (Neon Revolt, maybe?) The way the elites are constantly trying to discredit Q is telling.

Blogger Bibliotheca Servare January 12, 2020 3:04 PM  

@Ominous Cowherd

Yeah, what ever happened to Steve, anyway? I haven't seen one of his eye-bleed inducing images in a really long time.

Pretty sure if he got a show on the UA News Network it would be the one you watched with a tab open to some industrial grade eyebleach at all times.

Blogger Dan in Georgia January 12, 2020 3:51 PM  

Exactly. Buying Headline News from whoever owns Turner now would be a start. No ratings and it’s dead as a brand. There are still dozens of cable channels with no audience taking up space. But no, they go after the one that threatens the GOPe the most. Hope they turn it down but they’re just haggling over the price at this point.

The GOP establishment is opposed to genuine American nationalism. They want to crush OANN before it becomes a rival to Fox News. Fox news channel exists to co-opt American nationalism to serve the Zionist agenda.

News from a non-Judeo-Christian institution that is staggering giants. There is opportunity this election cycle. A place to build from for the next four year cycle. Plenty of new voids, vacant leadership.

@ 39. March Seven

I glance at it occasionally, and have spoken with some of the Falun Gong folk who distribute it here in NZ. They interviewed myself and a friend once, during one of their anti communism/organ harvesting protests. Took a pic of us. We're probably on a hit list in China now. They march around the streets all dressed the same and accompanied by a full band, fascinating.

UA news is a excellent idea! Only one left I watch is tucker and I do not know how long he'll last at fox. It would be great to have another source like UA news.

Blogger eclecticme January 13, 2020 1:44 PM  

I do not follow OAN regularly, and only watch Tucker on Fox. OAN was on site at Douma Syria soon after the fake gas attack and did a great job. I would hate to see them neutered.

The Duran, RT, RT America, and Kim Iversen do good jobs. Max Blumenthal is a POS much of the time but nailed it on Syria and US support for terrorism.
