Now that Bill O’Reilly is out at FOX News and Sean Hannity was subjected to a slanderous smear campaign, people are getting nervous about the future of FOX News.
That concern has sparked talk of the formulation of a new conservative cable news network.
Mediaite has the exclusive report:
EXCLUSIVE: Advanced Talks Underway For New Conservative Network Amid Fears Fox News Moving Too Far Left
On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats.
A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.
The potential aim? Putting “the old band” back together. There are certainly plenty of (out-of-work?) conservative powerhouses to pick from that could star on a new network, and perhaps even some executives from within Fox News who might be lured by the new opportunity.
Would you watch a new network like this? Who would you want to see as hosts? Let us know in a comment.
