Randian/Libertarian Billionaire, Actor Kelsey Grammer Teaming Up For New Right-Wing News Network?

It seems so.

Note: Comcast denies involvement, but Snider is has himself a lot of connections to Comcast. Hence my confusion.

Looks like a mix of Red Eye and red meat.

Flyers' owner Ed Snider has just picked up another right-winger.

This one won't help Philadelphia finally win another Stanley Cup, though.

...

The Snider-funded RightNetwork - with a looser approach to conservative topics, including a comedy show and a jocular front man in sitcom star Kelsey Grammer - is hoping to come to your cable box as early as this summer.

...

"We're creating a welcome place for millions and millions of Americans who've been looking for an entertainment network and media channel that reflects their point of view," Snider said. "RightNetwork will be the perfect platform to entertain, inform and connect with the American majority about what's right in the world."

...

As for programming, the proposed lineup on RightNetwork - as posted for a preview on its Web site, rightnetwork.com - is slanted more toward what could be called "conservative entertainment" and away from the newsier approach of Fox.

There is, for example, a right-leaning comedy show, "Evan Sayet's Right 2 Laugh," with standup comics making jokes about President Obama's teleprompter and buying an Obama coin "because any collector will tell you a coin is worth a lot more when there's an obvious mistake on it."

There's also a reality show called "Running" about six novice conservative candidates, and "Politics and Poker" with bombastic new-media star Andrew Breitbart.

Interesting.
