(April 20) -- Look alive, Fox! This summer, a new on-demand media network is set to debut several steps to the right of the current "Fair and Balanced" cable-news leader.
The "RightNetwork" announced its arrival with a limited-preview website, touting a line-up of all-original programming designed to reflect "Pro-America, Pro-Business, Pro-Military sensibilities." And even though the start-up lacks a specified release date and may or may not have a national distributor, it has already generated the kind of controversy that befits any cable news channel.
The commotion was largely kicked up by a widely circulated promotional video starring "Cheers" and "Frasier" alumnus Kelsey Grammer as himself, sounding off on things he thinks are wrong with the world -- a list that covers everything from "big government" to "grape-flavored vodka."

Can’t wait to tune in...we need more of these types of things.
Good to have a backup. Murdoch’s son is a flaming lefty.
How about a pro-CONSTITUTION focus?
This is exactly the right climate to start a channel like this. I just hope it will be covered by my local provider.
Blogged on this new channel yesterday. Here is the video from blog.
who is behind this as we need to find this out otherwise it will be the far left trick of making viewers think they are watching a right news channel but for that channel to turn left over a period of time .
The far left have been dong this for year in the church, gun right groups etc
Taking back red. Taking back red banners.
Next, the rehabilitation of the perfectly good and decent words “comrade” and “gay”.
I suspect it’s Breitbart and the like. Wouldn’t be surprised if Beck is behind it too.
Bill Mahr played that years ago with “Politically Incorrect”.
I hope so. I am certainly interested.
There’s “grape flavored vodka”? Who could be against that?
Why is it that things conservatives and/or Repubs do subject to these and similar terms? Alinsky, anyone?
If Beck is behind launching a competitor he’d get the heave-ho from Fox News pretty fast.
If it’s good, I’d be happy to pay to subscribe. Fox has taken a sharp left turn lately.
maybe it is but I would like to see who is behind this and not another left wing group making the right think they are watching a right wing channel.
My distrust comes form the far left setting up gun right groups , getting into the churchs etc.
I just hope it is not a left wing group or soros behind this and then the channel turns left over a period of time meanwhile making those viewers think they are getting right wing programming.
I’ll wait to find out the backers first before I get carried away with this plus this could be another left group funding this to take viewers away from FOX
find out who the backers are before we get all giddy about this,.
the left have always set up groups pretending that they are right wing but then turn left.
even on this thread some are getting their hopes up with out knowing all the facts behind this
Their slogan should be ‘We ARE Equal Time’.
‘bout time....they lauching free e-mail service too so I can finally ditch AOL?
I cannot believe some have already fallen for this and the channels has not even started.
There’s a gun right group pretending to be right wing and comp for the NRA but they are anything but right wing.
they have set up churches like the unitarian church.
now this could be a ploy by the left so lets not all get giddy just yet as it could be their way of taking fox down
really ‘do you know who is funding this?
You seem very happy but I bet you do not know who is funding this and yet some will think it’s right wing but then find out it will turn left because it is the lefts way of taking viewers away from fox who they hate plus tell the viewers stories with a more left tilt over time
I would like to see a news program that responds to and analyzes events reported in the MSM on a day by day basis, to reveal the omissions abd distortions we see every day.
I’d love to see a channel which tells viewers how the MSM is slanting their facts and then they proceed to tell the real facts
name and shame like the GOP should be doing but haven’t the balls too
I wonder is Pat Sajak, Drew Carey, Patricia Heaton and others can be convinced to join this effort?
“this could be a ploy by the left so lets not all get giddy just yet”
Fair enough, but I remain hopeful.
Time will tell.
Don’t know if this is actually going to materialize, or not. If so, it’s rumored to launch in the summer of 2010...we’ll be watching for it.
DISH Network is filled with weirdo left wing channels out in the swamp land of satellite. I hope they can drop one of their Chinese channels if the need the room for this. Maybe a few of their Global Warming channels too.
Hopefully, DirecTV will do the same and add this network to their lineup.
Reminds me of a quote I read once:
“’Gay’ used to be one of the most agreeable words in the language. Its appropriation by a notably morose group is an act of piracy.” Arthur Schlesinger
Come on people. Whats with all these conspiracy posts?
Let’s just wait and see.
We have the traditional alphabet networks (ABC,NBC,
CBS,PBS), Comedy Central, HBO, and others which we
all know to be leftist propaganda machines. They
don’t necessarily see themselves as we do. More
important, a great segment of the population doesn’t
understand what we do about the unfairness of the
MSM. Maybe they don’t care or possibly they are
just politically numb. Anyway, who among us would
be dumb enough not to recognize a bunch of lefties
posing as conservatives? If we’re not smart enough
to pick them out then we are certainly too dumb
to be a movement. Let’s put these conspiracy
theories on the backburner.
On the other hand the current line-up of left wing
networks do not advertise themselves as such. By
not labelling themselves they can claim that they
occupy the middle ground which is precisely where the
majority of viewers believe they are as individuals.
Now, a new network enters the picture. It proudly
proclaims itself to be a voice for a specific poli-
tical point of view. That may work well for us as
conservatives but how will it play to the rest of
the TV watching nation? Would it have been better
for the network to have promoted itself as “some-
thing different” and proceed to provide conserva-
tive programing while claiming no bias? That
would be no different than what the other networks
have always done.
Basically, my question is will proclaiming “in
your face” conservatism be a winning formula?
It will depend on programing. I hope there is
is a satire based news program similar to the
Daily Show. If they need writers all they have
to do is to frequent FR. Some of the funniest
edgey stuff is right here........
I just called Direct TV to request it on DTV.
Now this could be big. I look forward to the launch and hope that is as good as it could be.
