From The Raw Story... FOK NEWS debuts tonight!

FOK NEWS is now up and running http://www.foknewschannel.com.

For background on information here is an earlier diary on Fok News

Tonight looks like it will be fun for Kossacks, but not so much for Fox News.

Another source confirms...fok news channel debuts tonight

********

Hopefully it will be open to the general populace shortly.
UPDATE: Seems some are confused. The will be a website initially with light content, but heavy hitting editorials. Videos will come latter. This is not his tv show.

We will begin FOKNewsChannel with 3 staples: "The First Guess" will be my column of commentary and analysis, sometimes short, sometimes not

Greetings, Earthlings: my website/blog FOKNewsChannel.Com will go live at 9:30 PM Eastern this evening. Three flavors of FOK will be served

***********************
The site is up and here is a tease... Keith writes eloquently about getting unfairly fired and the need for unions to protect American workers.  
So on a Monday in September of 1980 – just before one of those rare back-to-back off-day combinations – he’d yelled and I’d yelled back and I went to my office and he went to his office, which is where he found his boss, just back from lunch and – as usual – drunk. His boss didn’t like me, largely because I was 21 and younger than anybody else in his shop by twelve years, and because I did strange things like commentaries about dying ballplayers and baseball trainers who liked to cultivate tomatoes in the bullpen instead of monsters of the midway and that crap. And he looked at the half-admiring, half-furious smoke coming out of his ears and he slurred something about “dat kid been gibbin you lip again?” and before Stan could say it was ok, the fire was lit in his drunken eyes.

I'm already hooked on FOK News even before it gets the video segment.  Keith Olbermann is back and he is free to really speak his mind.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
