Trump News? Fox News Obtains Casting Notice For ‘Up-And-Coming’ Conservative News Network

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Donald Trump keeps saying is not interested in having his own news network. But what if he loses next Tuesday? The cost to launch a cable network is extremely expensive and Trump would have to raise several billion dollars to get it off the ground.

But what about a streaming based network? The Trump team has been experimenting with that on Facebook and the costs to launch an internet based network would require far less money. The only question is whether or not an internet only news network could attract the necessary talent to make it a success. But it’s out there:

What’s being billed as an “up-and-coming conservative media network currently in development” is now scouring for hosts, reporters and right-leaning, well-spoken panelists, according to a brand new casting notice obtained Wednesday evening by Fox News.

The notice goes on to say the on-air talent the network wants “must be knowledgeable about conservative viewpoints, current events and the presidential election,” adding applicants must also “look upscale and intelligent,” and should be “outspoken and energetic.”

Auditions are being held at an undisclosed New York City studio on Nov. 7, the eve of Election Day.

While the casting call doesn’t identify any specific employer, it does suggest initial programming will be streamed on the internet, infrastructure the Trump campaign has already set up through its Facebook live feed where aides have been broadcasting events and counter news programming.

Here’s the other issue that concerns me. Will this be a “news” outlet that seeks to preach to the choir with nothing but commentary or will it be a network that covers news but with a conservative bent?
