THE SAPIENT SPARROW: conservatism for commoners

"What has always made the State a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven."–Holderlin


Kelsey Grammer, and his (unknown) partners, are pitching a new cable network called Right Network to be rolled out this summer.  The intention of the new network is to present humor, informal political commentary, reality/documentary pieces, etc. from a conservative point of view.  Not only could this kind of network be competitive with Fox News, having the potential to make both networks better, but also could be a real entertainment and educational alternative to other (left-leaning) cable networks.

The timing of Right Network could not be better.  As we become more and more conscious of the progressive agenda of the radical left, it becomes increasingly frustrating to find programming that deals with subjects in a factual manner.  Networks like, The Science Channel, Discovery Channel, The History Channel, etc. all fall prey at one time or another to a leftist subtext.  There is a myriad of possible directions that programming could take on the new Right Network.  Climate change, eco-imperialism, educational indoctrination, the politicization of scientific inquiry, economics and non-revised history all come to mind.

If Mr. Grammer and his associates can seize this very teachable moment, the Right Network could be a resounding success.  Watch the five clips below, and tell me what you think.

    This network looks like it could have some great content. I especially like the idea of the comedy show to offset shows like Bill Maher’s. “Running” looks like it can give some insight into what it is like to run for office.

    It is great that there will be another conservative voice besides FOX news, and from these trailers it looks like the traditional message will be delivered with some wit and humor.

    It will be interesting to see how quickly cable and satellite vendors add this channel to their offering. I will also be interested to see whether it will be part of the basic package or whether it will be considered “premium” content.

      In order to support this kind of content, if it is done right (no pun intended), would be worth the extra charge of a “premium” channel to me. The potential impact of such a channel on the wider culture could be invaluable.
