An unknown individual or group sent out casting notice for an, “up-and-coming conservative media network currently in development”.
Fox News has the story:
What’s being billed as an “up-and-coming conservative media network currently in development” is now scouring for hosts, reporters and right-leaning, well-spoken panelists, according to a brand new casting notice obtained Wednesday evening by Fox News.
The notice goes on to say the on-air talent the network wants “must be knowledgeable about conservative viewpoints, current events and the presidential election,” adding applicants must also “look upscale and intelligent,” and should be “outspoken and energetic.”
Auditions are being held at an undisclosed New York City studio on Nov. 7, the eve of Election Day.
While the casting call doesn’t identify any specific employer, it does suggest initial programming will be streamed on the internet, infrastructure the Trump campaign has already set up through its Facebook live feed where aides have been broadcasting events and counter news programming.
Is Trump behind this mysterious endeavor? He says no.
Trump himself shot down the idea, telling the Washington Post last month, “I want to win the presidency and I want to make America great again. It’s very simple. I have no interest in a media company.”
Do we really need yet another news network with a confirmed ideological bent? Can’t we just have a news network that you know, reports the news?
