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.

We are ready for something anti-establishment. Fox lost their luster years ago. They are the same old tripe with pretty blondes.
Good news....Fox needs some serious competition. No one wants to see Shep Smith, Whorealdo, and Juan, but Ailes still cuts fat checks to them for their pathetic ramblings. Hopefully, One America will be a conservative BBC, which would be GREAT.
The pretty blondes don’t cover up the Fox rot that is occurring. Welcome to the new network. I’ll watch it whenever possible.
yeh! - but what about The girls on Fox News:
Emily Miller’s a real hottie. She’ll give them all a good run for their moneuy.

It may be a hard sell to get on cable. Cable companies already have CNN, FoxNews and MSNBC, plus several business and headline channels.
MSNBC (or whatever it called now) survives primarily because of its association with NBCUniversal. It, like so many cable channels, came in a package deal. It just didn’t bring much viewership along with it.
CNN has rapidly declined. Philosophy? Agenda? Left leaning?
FoxNews, well, sort of. It used to be pretty good, but hour after hour of the same ole gets old. And the commentaries? I gave up on many of the FoxNews programs years ago. One time, for example, one afternoon program has 4 guests and the Host in windows. The Host set quietly as the 4 talked and yelled over each other. That exchange went on for 7 minutes before the Host finally inserted himself into the arguing — for a hard commercial break. For 7 minutes all 4 guests were talking and yelling and none of them actually got heard. I haven’t watched that afternoon program since that waste-of-time exchange. [/rant]
As for the evening news programs. I watched some of the FoxNews a decade ago when I first signed up for cable. But they became the same nightly rants, the same guests, the same discussions. Gretta was on her Aruba disappearance night after night. O’Reilly was decrying the fact that some high schools were holding ‘private’ proms. During the 2008 election, I turned on Hannity for a moment.
If/when this new channel gets up and running, I hope it does give the other cable news channels a good challenge.
Today there is the Blaze but it does not have the fire or thrust that Weyrich brought. Weyrich was better educated than Beck and could pull members onto his Washington-based set at a moment's notice. Too bad we lost him days prior to BO’s 2009 inauguration.
