Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

A link from....ugh...Drudge says that Wealth TV, an obscure satellite channel (I think that only Dish carries it) announced that it's teaming up with the Washington Times to launch it's own cable news network this summer, to be known as One America News.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

The network, to be started by Wealth TV owner Robert Herring will be broadcast from the Times new studios in DC and will feature such "talent" as Times' staffers Ralph Hallow, Emily Miller and talk show host Andy Parks, Graham Ledger, Rick Amato and Gina Loudon.  Outside of Loudon, i have never heard of these people, and probably don't want to.

Herring says that "Fox has done a great job of serving the center-right and independent audiences, and liberals have a half-dozen or more places to get their news". Really? Outside of MSNBC and Current, name me other places that Liberals get their news from? A half-dozen sources?? I don't think so!!!

I am wondering how long it will take One America News to be a staple on most cable and satellite channels? Since most of these companies are owned by deep-pocketed righties, another source of propaganda may well suit them, as Murdoch's unwatched ugly stepchild, Fox Business is on virtually all cable systems and Dish and Directv. I am also guessing that these systems, who would welcome another right-of-center alleged news outlet wouldn't even think of adding the new incarnation of Current when Al-Jazeera takes over this summer.
