    Conservative analysis on PBS and C-Span? Dude, I literally had to clear coffee off my monitor thanks to this comment. Apparently you're unfamiliar with true conservatism, and are content with fleeting lip-service to it.

    I'm pretty familiar with it, but it is quite clear you are way out of your league when it comes to dissemination of conservative ideas. You must be more familiar with the pedestrian Fox News, made for children who like enticing special effects, yelling, and babes on the screen. It's more hilarious American conservatives think great conservative ideas are distributed by models and angry men yelling at each other. On C-SPAN you get conservative think-tanks galore, dating back to the mid-1980s. For decades on PBS they had distributed William Buckley's Firing Line, Ben Wattenberg's Think-Tank, Hoover Institute's Uncommon Knowledge and now Jim Glassman's Ideas in Action.

    Do you have any evidence?

    One half hour a week would be better than 12 hours of silly nonsense a day.

    Another Fox News???? Yes. I can hear the liberals whining already!! We can finally have some type of balance on cable now! It won't be long now until the liberals come on this page and bash it for being un-fair for infringing on their monopoly rights Read it and weep!
    I love it.... I'm not a TV guy but I do like (and get annoyed) by The Blaze TV.....

    Libertarians need their own channel.... I should really look into that...

    Nancy Pelosi would be my first "guest" - that would be fun!

    I suppose my problem is no one knows who I am.

    Me, Michael Savage and Wilkow vs Pelosi - give her the MSNBC treatment

    It is the function of Capitalism to maintain a friendly political environment to allow Corporations to operate efficiently and free to concentrate on profit_
    And shouldn't said corporations then support a "business-friendly" narrative rather than your perception of a "liberal" one?

    So please don't go getting all wacko on me dude__Let's keep it down to earth, okay?!
    A conspiracy theory like "massive liberal media bias" has more followers but that doesn't make it more accurate.

    The media has a financial bias, a sensational bias (which is related to the financial bias), and a bias towards laziness.

    Oh, I see, you still buy into that "liberal media" myth. That billion-dollar corporations would promote a daily liberal narrative.
    What makes you think that big gov't corporations do not support big gov't (and vice versa)? Corporations would much prefer borrow and spend to tax and spend, because they are the ones most targetted by tax increases. While gov't "over regulation" is often cited as bad for business, it is far worse for small businesses than for big businesses. Large corporations, like GE/Apple, rig the rules via gov't "help" to ensure that their taxes are low and they can use "global" resources without any adverse impacts. While liberals paint "big oil" as the boogie man, they pay far more taxes, and create/support far more US jobs, than "big tech" or "big green". Where would "big auto" and abundent energy be without "big oil"?
