“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,” CEO Robert Herring Sr. said in an announcement on the Washington Times website.
Herring acknowledged the inevitable Fox comparisons by explaining that he sees far more liberal-leaning news outlets on television and indicated that Fox could use some competition from another right-leaning network. “Fox News has done a great job serving the center-right and independent audiences,” he said. “But those who consider themselves liberal have a half dozen or more choices on TV each day from which to get their news.”
The new network will reportedly rely on the Washington Times as its “primary source of news and analysis” from Washington, D.C., while its home studio will be based on the west coast. According to the Wall Street Journal, One American News Network has plans to launch July 1 and reach a relatively small number of 10-15 million homes.
Liberals and democrat outlets will think One America will challenge Fox News. In my opinion, this is being created to give conservatives another leg up against the liberal media bias and is very much needed. Will conservatives embrace this additional network…time will tell but I already do!
