Say Hello to The Real News

Can a non-profit news network survive without corporate contributions, government funding or advertising?

The Real News thinks so and is set to launch its first daily newscast.

The Real News is a product of Independent World Television. Paul Jay is the Chairman and CEO.

I've had the pleasure of working with Paul in the past (in 2000 on the TNT documentary, Was Justice Denied?, which we spent six months filming part-time around the country) and I would bet that if anyone can make this a reality, he can. Check out his video message on the Real News site.

I hope you will keep your eye out for the launch of The Real News, and make a point to watch.

    This is a great idea. Very impressive Press Coverage. I hope they get enough support to get launched on all the major cable networks.

    ...join the long list of "Armstrong Williams' School of Reporting Propaganda", as have CNN, FAUX, MSNBC and the other bought-and-paid-for network news.

    Money can be a hugh temptation, and with bush handing out billions for propaganda, and the certainty that no republicans will appear on anything other than another stenographic network, I'm sure the start-up will be tough.

    I wish him the very best of luck and pray for an unbiased, truthful network which will report "real" facts instead of maladministration facts.
    What a revoltin' development THAT would be.
