The Washington Times extending
reach with cable network

Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/14/2013 5:43:43 PM

Herring Broadcasting, owner of the Wealth TV network, and The Washington Times announced Thursday that they have joined in a strategic partnership to create a new national cable news network called One America News, set to debut nationwide this summer. “One America News Network will provide Americans a new, credible source for national and international news and investigative reporting as well as talk shows designed to foster an independent, cutting-edge debate about the policies, issues and solutions facing the country,” said Robert Herring Sr., CEO of Herring Broadcasting, founded in 2004 and based in San Diego.

Comments:
Hoping when this News Network kicks off that it will be more Hardcore reporting on the FACTS and NOT spout the Godless Humanist Progressive/Liberal DemocRat Propaganda. Hope they hire Real journalists with integrity and ethics who will dig out the Truth no matter where it leads. An excellent chance to blow Fox News out of the water.

It will be interesting to see if FoxNews feels any heat and moves back toward the right which is what got them noticed and ultimately successful in the first place.

If so, that will tell me two things. #1, this new network will lean, perhaps strongly, conservative. #2, those of us who sensed FoxNews was abandoning us were right.

As an aside, I watched O´Reilly last night for the first time in quite a while. What a pompous, full-of-himself, me, me, me "celebrity" he has become.

Isn´t it telling that the conservative Washington Times is buying a cable network while the leftist newspapers and networks are laying people off and just barely staying out of bankruptcy? The LSM should buy a clue. Betcha that heads are exploding over in the shrinking Washington Post newsroom right about now.

Well, good. We´ll see if DirecTV picks it up. In the meantime, I´ll be ´encouraging´ them to do so.

Ditto with Blaze TV. If I have to take Al Jazeera, then I should be able to have these two as well.

It´ll be interesting to see how many (if any) Fox News on-camera personnel will change over....

I have to say, though, that ´One America News´ sounds a little too one-worldy to me. Why can´t we have a conservative news outlet that SAYS it´s CONSERVATIVE. ´Right News Network´ with tagline, ´Yeah, we lean right, because we ARE right.´

Washington Times is about to learn this lesson, unless they managed to buy or build their own Cable Company like COMCAST, or Disney.

I think they are copying Glenn Beck. He just started a new program on this same theme, straight news without an agenda. It´s called "For The Record". Go to the Blaze online and read about it.

The bad thing about the Blaze TV network is that they put it on the highest tier which means the average person, who may have the first or second tier, won´t get to see anything on the Blaze Network.

So much for your audience Glenn.

I welcome this network. The more conservative networks, the better.

However, not sure I understand the hint of snideness about Fox News. They are fair and balanced. I don´t like all the hosts (Shep and O´Reilly, for two) but I love the morning shows. I DVR Fox and Friends every morning.

It´s been ages since I watched Fox or most programs on TV. The funny thing is ~ since November 2008 (we all know what happened then.....) I find myself watching more and more religious programming. Up to the end of 2008 I guess you could have called me a ´CINO´ but after the election that sure changed! I ran for my Bible and haven´t let go. (of course I´m from PA so that´s probably why).

Fox changed after Murdoch met with Soros. They got rid of Glenn Beck and started hiring more and more liberal commentators.

WABC radio hired Geraldo and Sean Hannity is constantly putting on liberal callers. I barely listen to him anymore.

I have often wondered what happened at that meeting.

#11, are you aware that Blaze TV is available on Dish Network with ANY level of service on an a la carte basis? It´s only 5 bucks a month and can be turned on with just a phone call. Channel 212 Dish Network. It is SO worth it.

Good news -- except that the liberal-owned cable companies will undoubtedly refuse to carry it or else charge a premium to any who want to watch it. However, the Oprah network and Al Jazeera and other liberal cable networks with about 60 viewers each will be carried for free.

Do me a favor. No "breaking news" bells every 5 minutes. I can still remember Fox breaking in with the bell, quickly going to a reporter on the ground, and then ringing the bell again in the middle of their conversation as something else came across the wire. Enough already.

Hey, Fox! I get it! I get it! You’re Fair & Balanced. But, enough already! For years you’ve made your point. Fair & Beckel. Fair & Colmes. Fair & Williams. Fair & various other doctrinaire leftists have become so tiresome to watch and listen to that my handy-dandy mute-button/channel-changer is getting more and more of a workout every day. Ouch! I’ve come down with a severe case of Remote Finger Fatigue.

I watch it a lot because there’s so much and so many to like about Fox News Channel. I’ll not name my favorite programs and personalities for fear I’ll forget to mention a few. It’s just that Bob, Alan and Juan and their ilk are so insufferably predictable in their commentary that they add little or nothing new to the equation.

So, to the forthcoming “One America Cable News Network” of the Washington Times, I say Welcome! Bring it!

I´m sick of fair and balanced FOX with the likes of Shepard Smith and Bill O´Reilly. I do, however, really like Hannity and Greta. I´m looking forward to this new network in hopes that it will provide an alternative to Fox, who seem to have lost their way in the National debate for the future of our country.
Please.......... no more fair and balanced!

I hope One America News just reports the facts.
No spin-right or left.
Just the facts , most of us will decide.
Fox has become the Fluff network, cutesy shows and
anchors trying to be entertainers.
I hope they hire serious commentators like Brit Hume and challenge the nightly news shows with
a competing half hour national broadcast .
It´s difficult to fill up hours and hours
of broadcasting , maybe they should just go on air for a couple of intense hours every day.
Perhaps with a Crossfire type show.
Pat Buchanan had the educational background
to present the conservative facts and he did it in a way that didn´t ridicule or insult the liberal co host.
Plus,he would engage in an activity that is often missing from the right today.
Buchanan , like WIlliam F Buckley , often laughed and obviously enjoyed the intellectual sparring.
If the liberal co host made a valid point,
he , like Buckley , would acknowledge it.
You´re not allowed to do that today , either from the right or the left.
Hannity and Colmes and the other conservative v liberals -on all channels -just scream at each other
and hurl insults.

Guys, guys, let´s not get giddy beforehand!
We´ll see what transpires. Don´t forget that the conservative point of view is not for us but for the flyover unwashed. We are already in the know, they aren´t.
And another point - it is not what kind of reporters they will hire, it is the management position. Reporters will report sensibly if the management is sensible.
Something else - why cable channel? Why not go for local tv stations? This is where the sheeple get the propaganda.

I never get any worthwhile information that I already havent learned from this fine salon, and I get so annnoyed, yelling at them to STOP IT YOU IDIOTS! over and over until I finally gave up watching anyone but Cavuto...fellow paisan.

Hope the new guys learn from the mistakes of FNC Cable news and give us what we want---the OPPOSITE of the lefty liberal progressive rump-swab lap dog enemedia liars! A TRUE Conervative News Channel.

As the saying goes, (vis a vis FOX) you can´t please all of the people all of the time.

I remain thankful for FOX. I often get steamed with some of the "other side" contributers, especially Colmes... and Williams. I don´t let myself get aggravated by watching Shep and (most of the time) O´Reilly-- who really is a pompous bombast.

Overall, however, FOX does a good job reporting on stories which neither MSM nor lefty Cables will touch.

Also, FOX continues to be a thorn in the left-wing media´s side.

Looking forward to some competition, if it helps to keep FOX on its toes. We all have to remain vigilant.

Our enemy "goes about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he might devour."

Me, lenchu255, continue:
Well, we, smart (ha-ha) people, are getting the news and points of view. We don´t need FOX, Rush, and many others. But for the flyover sheeple, there have to be mainstream media outlets, local newspapers and tv stations.
They won´t get it with FOX or Washington Times - we need to demand conservative mainstream media from our wealthy brothers in arms. We will get as much fiscal support to them by subscribing to their local newspapers and advertisers on those TV stations.
Other than that, it will be one more channel for us, who know it already!
You know, there is only so much of NR, American Spectator and TownHall you can rehash, right?

It´s time for a little competition for FNC. I often find the foxnews.com stream more interesting and in depth than some of the "on-cable" shows. FNC needs to drop the "Today Show" template. I hope this new network will also be available via a live subscription stream, like Blaze. It also needs to be a bit broader-based than Blaze. Then let viewers and the market sort it all out.

What is with this "flyover sheeple" crap? We have running water and electricity, paved roads and weekly trash pickup. We even have computers and gasp!-Cable! Speak for yourself John Alden! If you look at the election map, flyover is Red. Left coast and right coast are mostly Blue. Sounds to me like its time for you to take a roadtrip.

hey, #33 Razorgirl, it is not to tell you what is right or wrong. It is statement of the fact - the people who voted for obozo outnumbered the people who voted against!
Imo, this is happening because people, yes, unwashed flyovers, are propagandized through and through with local newspapers and tv.
Your position on red/blue might be right to some extent, but in general the numbers speak for themselves.
I believe, if we had conservative mainstream media and "flyovers" would see the headlines (they don´t read or listen to politics anyway) they might have different opinion of commies/fascists.
And cable, yes, the viewership of FOX is what, 3-4 million. For CNN it is ~1-2 million. Hence, the populus is getting the ideas not from there, but from Honey-Boo-Boo networks, where they are brainwashed by local programming, which is pure commie propaganda.

"News That´s Truly Important--Even If It Has No Video" and

"Yesterday´s News Today: What Actually Happened, Corrected and In Context"

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

Could the 2016 presidential election turn into a contest between a Bush and a Clinton? Political debate in America last week revolved around whether or not Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor who is son or brother to two former US presidents – both named George – would jump into the 2016 battle for the Republican presidential nomination. For a nation that fought a war for independence from the hereditary power of the British Crown, in the person of another fellow named George, the concept of nominating a third Bush to run for the White House against a second Clinton (the former

Alert shoppers are accustomed to watching food prices go up and down. But a string of forces—from droughts to diseases—is raising the cost of a trip to the grocery store at a rapid clip. And it looks like it will be a while before the price pressure eases. Some of that pressure is coming from California—the source of roughly half the nation´s fruits and vegetables—where a long-running drought is forcing farmers and ranchers to cut production. After the driest year on record, large sections of farmland are expected to lay fallow this year as the Golden State copes with an ongoing water

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Friday called for a Senate hearing into the dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over cattle grazing. Heller described as "patriots" the people who came armed to Bundy’s ranch after the BLM began to seize his cattle for refusing to pay grazing fees and fines that now total more than $1 million. Heller debated the ranch standoff on a Nevada television station with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who has called the armed Bundy supporters “domestic terrorists.” "What senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Heller said.

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
