Re: [lpsf] A Major New Liberty TV Network Is On The Way!

Next Thursday, I'm having lunch at the Seasteading office.  Maybe I should speak with Ricky beforehand?

Is there a "party neutral" version of this or should we begin one. Jennifer wants to serve a larger audience than a million households.  This means re-framing our plan and objectives in different language. "Libertarian" is not an "investment grade" label in that market yet.  Making it such would be an entirely different dimension of the enterprise 

How many  of the people we need would be inspired by the idea of  "Libertarian TV?  The big  demographics are already served by  "Republican TV" (Fox")?   Democratic TV MSNBC)?  

I think "Progress  TV" makes more sense along the same lines that PBS is "Socialist TV"  It's entertainment with a message.

I need to have a vision well formed and consistent with Jennifer's. As you know, I think Peter Thiel should be on the board. His intellectual development  and judgement are incomparable, not to mention reputation. If we are aligned well enough, there are a lot of reasons why he might want to be on board.

I plan to discuss this on Thursday to see where it leads.

Subject: [lpsf] A Major New Liberty TV Network Is On The Way!

Jennifer Grossman (formerly w/Cato Institute, now Senior VP at Dole Fruit) is heading up a liberty/libertarian television network along with Michael Strong (run’s John Mackey’s Conscious Capitalism org) and Ricky Ray Butler. (Plaid Media/Endorse Liberty PAC) Ricky Ray is also introducing Jennifer to the other tech geniuses/Silicon Valley creatives who were the motor behind that PAC in support of Ron Paul last year.
More information can be found by following these links –!the-network/c1mi2   
The branding will evolve, and I've introduced the team to my friend Justin Machecek, who is the senior on air producer (and an Emmy winner) at an established network.  Justin has experience branding something that's already on the air, and this will be much easier. 
I've also been busy introducing the team to other great content creators and journalists like my friend Mark Basile, (who produces a show on Spike TV right now) Tyrel Ventura, (Jesse's son) Jill Trammell, (produces a show on Discovery) Josh Tolley, Tatiana Moroz and Ben Swann, as well as Hollywood heavyweights like Michael O'Donnell, (worked on Spiderman and Pirates of the Caribbean) Rick Probst (Hansel and Gretel and the latest Die Hard) and the libertarians who have to go to secret meetings just to keep their jobs at places like MGM.
What makes this network different than Reason.TV, Infowars and The Next News Network?  The vision for this network, is not for a libertarian version of a news network like Fox or MSNBC, but a full spectrum network with everything from reality TV, cartoons, movies, music, comedy, lifestyle shows, etc, as well as the evening news, with undercurrents of liberty throughout the programming.  We’ll create something the general public will watch, be entertained by, and the liberty message will spread like never before.  The existing liberty networks will grow with us.   We also plan on making this available beyond the internet, and on satellite and cable.  It’s what the other side has been doing for decades, and it’s time we turned the tables.
We're still looking for a few amazing and well known individuals to fill out the board of directors.  We want people who have executive level experience in film and television, but we also want a few more people who are just passionate about the cause of liberty who have business experience.  We're also still looking for 1. other investors  2. talent in front of and behind the camera.  Filling out a weeks worth of live, original and compelling content is a tall order, but something we'll be able to pull off with the caliber of people we are bringing onto our team by the time we launch this fall.
It’s definitely a project long overdue.  Please let me know if you’d like to know more and are interested in being involved.  
We’re also going to be having a membership drive over the summer, and are looking for fun things and cool items to auction and raffle off to help spread the word.  Your donation will be much appreciated and not forgotten!

Viva la Liberty!  Let's make it mainstream!
