Watch Out Fox News: New Conservative News Network Being Launched

Fox News is a great news network. Not perfect but very impressive. In Canada, our own Sun News is changing the national culture by offering conservative and much needed contrary opinion, as opposed to consensus opinion. They are not as polished as Fox News but they are flesh and blood Canadian so we should be delighted to have them and we should support them wherever possible.

However, in America, it appears a new conservative media player has emerged.

The station, called One America News Network, is slated to announce its launch formally at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual gathering of conservatives, in Washington on Thursday.

The new network is a production of Herring Broadcasting, the San Diego-based company behind Wealth TV, a channel dedicated to appealing to and documenting the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
One America News Network, on the other hand, has a two-tier mission: providing opinion-free straight news reporting and right-leaning talk shows.

“It is getting really hard to find just the reliable, credible, fact-based news with substance,” said Charles Herring, president of Herring Broadcasting, in an interview from CPAC, where he was setting up for the announcement. “The second component is to provide a platform where more voices can be heard, voices that are ignored, libertarian and conservative voices.”
