The problem – A small handful of mega corporations
control some 90% of the news media in America, and distrust in the mainstream
media is at all time highs. Independent
and online media to date has tended to be biased towards one side of the
political spectrum or the other, or has lacked the professionalism necessary to
be taken seriously, along with lack of funds to really invest in boots on the
ground investigating and fact checking of stories.
Starting up a network in the mold of the traditional
network would be cost prohibitive, and with the way video content is being
viewed in 2014, also wouldn’t make sense.
The solution – Starting a non traditional network by
focusing on one show and producing great quality content, getting it on as many
online and mobile (Roku, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc) platforms as
possible, before looking to add another show.
To help keep our independence, we’re looking for
companies to advertise with us that aren’t afraid of the truth, won’t dictate
to us what we cover, and aren’t afraid of a little controversy. We’re also crowd funding, and we need your
help to keep going. Please consider
donating to our effort to make our Season 2 happen @ http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/truth-in-media-project-season-2
On top of that, we’re looking for investors to help us
take things to the next level. If you’re
interested in knowing more and would like to have a conversation/advertise/see
our business plans, etc, please write me at zakcarter (at) benswann.com
And thank you for your time!
