Liberty News TV skriver dette om seg selv, about Liberty News TV:
Liberty News TV is a half-hour long monthly television program, dedicated to unraveling the spin, lies and misguided policies of corporate-owned politicians, media outlets and misinformed pundits. We combine careful research with humor and satire to create a show that is both entertaining and informative. We aim to reach and activate the apathetic viewer/voter as well as the progressive thinker.
Written by professional journalists, LNTV is one of the few outlets left on the television airwaves where the truth about the Invasion of Iraq, corruption in Washington, loss of individual freedoms and the dangerous growth of corporatism and religious intolerance can be exposed to a general audience. We do not have any formal affiliation with any political party, and are not funded by any political PAC.
The program plays nationally on the Dish network, via Free Speech TV. It also plays on about 70 additional cable access television stations nationwide. The show also streams on the Internet, and most recently, podcasts.
LNTV is funded entirely by donations, including a small stipend (about $250 per month) from Free Speech TV. We recently received a small grant from the Glickenhaus Foundation. All of the rest of our operating expenses come from individual donors. In 2005, we received about $13,000 total and spent about $28,500 producing the show. At present, most of our staff work on a volunteer basis. In 2006, we hope to raise enough money for significant growth and outreach.
FAQ: COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT LIBERTY NEWS TV
AREN’T WE JUST "THE LIBERAL VERSION OF FOX NEWS"? We think that's an inaccurate description of Liberty News TV, because unlike FOX, we do not DISTORT the truth to serve a political agenda. We present facts that are being willfully ignored or casually overlooked by the corporate media. We often cite conservative sources, so long as they have done their homework. For example, our April 2006 show on U.S. trade policy includes several prominent conservative economists, who have seen the folly in our current trade practices. Our intention is not to forward a certain political point of view. It is, rather, to expose Americans to a more accurate picture of American politics, so that they can put a halt to what we see as a national crisis facing our environment, our civil rights, and our future.
WHERE DO WE GET OUR INFORMATION? Secondary sources for the program include major newspapers and broadcast organizations, both conservative and liberal. Whenever possible, we go to primary data, such as voting records, speeches, and interviews. LNTV also shares information (with no financial ties, however!) to organizations such as Newshounds.org, BuyBlue.org, MoveOn.org, Bushflash.com, and The Media Foundation (Adbusters).
WHAT’S OUR MISSION? Liberty News TV is an educational news program dedicated to challenging the regular flow of disinformation produced by mainstream media outlets. We like to think of ourselves as the modern equivalent of Thomas Paine. In 1776, Paine published a grassroots penny reader called Common Sense that changed the course of American politics. We’re dedicated to exposing how the politics of corporate and personal gain are damaging our civil liberties, making us less safe, destroying the environment, and ultimately selling out our children.
WHO’S WATCHING? Unfortunately, none of our outlets have a way of measuring viewership. Here’s what we do know: the show is available to more than 20 million viewers nationally via Free Speech TV, which broadcasts one or more of our shows almost every day. They also just started offering LNTV as part of a public access TV "block" that goes to 200+ public access TV channels nationally.
A recent survey in Tampa, Florida, found that 40 percent of the population tune into public access television on a fairly regular basis. For a detailed explanation of what public access is, who uses it, how it works, and a history of some LEGAL CHALLENGES read by CLICKING HERE.
Also, the program plays independently on about 70 public access television channels in 30 states. We’re gaining new TV venues at a rate of about 1 per week. Also, the program streams online at www.libertynewstv.com. We average about 12,000 online viewings per month.
