New Conservative Entertainment Network "RightNetwork" Launches

For those dissatisfied with the content provided by the "lamestream media," there's a new on-demand television station and multi-platform network that caters specifically to conservative audiences.

RightNetwork, which officially launched yesterday, seeks "to present the values and beliefs that America was built upon," according to the network's website.

Documented reasons why Koch Industries is the most vile and counterproductive company in the US

Could it be that the Koch brothers are at it again?

Is the battle heating up?

Charles and David Koch are known for their oil and chemical holdings, ranching and etc...

The Kochs operate oil refineries in Alaska, Texas, and Minnesota, and control some four thousand miles of pipeline. Koch Industries owns Brawny paper towels, Dixie cups, Georgia-Pacific lumber, Stainmaster carpet, and Lycra, among other products. Forbes ranks it as the second-largest private company in the country, after Cargill, and its consistent profitability has made David and Charles Koch—who, years ago, bought out two other brothers—among the richest men in America. Their combined fortune of thirty-five billion dollars is exceeded only by those of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

But no one is talking about their media and communications companies, their support and development of internet marketing and advertising - the essential role of the Marketing Troll in their schemes - or the Koch links to Comcast and Comcast's suspected role in funding the RightNetwork.

But for a few decades, the Koch bros have been re-defining libertarianism to mean corporate government (tsk), trying to take down peoples' governments, and pushing their own agenda to make more and more money. A truly noble endeavor is some circles.

After getting heavy into gaming and WiFi a while back, the Koch family apparently directed their advertising and marketing strategies towards manipulating the internet and social networking sites.

Enter the Marketing Troll...

Here's a brief overview of Marketing Troll principles, for your edification:

Social Advertising Best Practices

Social media is big and getting bigger, providing marketers with a combination of reach, relationships, and relevance:

* Reach: Social media has overtaken email as the most popular consumer activity
* Relationships: Social media's strength is in the personal connections it enables, the peer-to-peer contact…
* Relevance: Consumers are extremely engaged with the content and connections that their friends are creating because of its personal relevance.

Chris Koch's B2B Marketing Blog: Eight reasons to monitor social media and a list of tools for doing it

Here are some of the ways that these tools give marketers more insight into online conversations:

* Assign a response. Some of the tools let you define the types of comments or conversations that deserve a response, flag them, and route them to a designated person for action...

* Identify influential sources. The tools can determine the popularity of conversations and the sources of those conversations. This helps you decide which blogs you’d like to do outreach with, for example.

Chris Koch: How to create B2B social media policies
One of the cornerstones of a social media strategy is having a clear set of corporate social media guidelines or policies. The best documents don’t just tell employees what not to do; they also tell them what they should be doing to further the marketing goals of the company.
* Encourage community through sharing and attribution. Social media is not just a place for broadcasting opinions. Employees should be encouraged to become part of the community by doing research and linking to other relevant content—not just their own.

Separate opinion from fact. The best retort to criticism is factual evidence to the contrary. But employees need to check those facts for accuracy and attribute them rather than passing along something they aren’t sure about.

Make it public. Nothing demonstrates your openness and commitment to social media more than making your policy publicly available. ..

Chris Koch: Three steps for B2B marketers to build a personal social media presence
You may have to adopt a more split business personality (and do more work). You shouldn’t just get involved in social media to the extent necessary to do your day job. To get better, you should think of yourself as part of the emerging guild of B2B marketers in social media. …your personal social media goal—to be a valued member of the online B2B marketing guild—let’s talk about how you go about building your presence.
Step 1. Monitor
Step 2. Engage
Step 3. Manage

Looks like more great research here soficrow, can't wait to dig in!

These Koch brothers, brought up on another thread, they do seem to need more attention. They seem to represent the "cutting edge" of corporate criminality, on steroids.

So many things to consider. As in the early industrialist days, there are those out there who will do whatever, at the expense of whoever, to rake it in.

As in those days of old, if they can rake it in fast enough, they will also amass a war-chest at some point, that is, for all practical purposes, too big to challenge effectively.

Big money can always pay off the right politicians to make sure they can continue, no matter what. If they are challenged in court, they can afford an army of lawyers, that can bring the legal system itself, to a halt.

We would be negligent if we did not take into consideration the fact that big money can also use lethal force, silencing, or even terminating adversaries at will, if deemed necessary.

No, it's not the Old West, but perhaps that was just the dress-rehearsal!

I can think of one monstrous example, off the top of my head, of recent corporate crime, that essentially went unpunished.

Pfizer. Yes, the largest pharmaceutical corporation in the world. Fifty billion plus in annual revenues, and heck of a lot of that, pure profits.

Recently, they sustained the biggest fine of all time for the crime they committed. They spent a decade pushing dangerous, and unapproved drugs, that were approximately 100 times (not an exaggeration) the cost of alternatives, that wouldn't have cost so many lives.

Four of five "shell" corporations had been set up as things heated up, in order to take the hit. When all was said and done, this mega-beast of a transnational corporation had been fined the equivalent of a few moth's profits!

Imagine. Dead bodies. Lies, and more lies. A company that can now do it AGAIN! Why should they stop? They have no incentive whatsoever to act responsibly!

NOW. Multiply the outrage. This corporate "behavior" the NORM. Once they get past a certain size it seems, the beasts take on a life of their own.

I'm not sure there is always a board of directors sitting there, callously weighing profits, against lives. It probably isn't quite that way. As I recall, the Pfizer whistle-blower explained that he had "quotas", and if he didn't do what he did, another rep would do the same, and he would be out of a job. And his manager knew exactly what was going on, all the way up.

SO, maybe there wasn't a "plan" to kill so many people, and make so many millions....

Could it almost be worse, that there exists a "structure", that may "naturally" result in exactly what we saw with Pfizer? Again, these beasts seem to almost have a life of their own. It almost suggests that the nature of the modern corporate entity is perhaps the bigger problem here (instead of the usual few "greedy people" we always hear about).

Clearly, something needs to be done. This thread may be a small step in that positive direction, who knows?

S & F on this one!

Great thread. This information (especially about the Koch brothers) needs to get out.

I hope RightNetwork goes completely bankrupt and fails hard.

So far I can't find any links between RightNetwork and the Kochs. The breakdown of funding/support seems to come from:
-Ed Snider (Comcast-Spectacor chairman)
-Kelsey Grammer (Actor)
-Some Las Vegas chiropractor

RightNetwork's Syndication Partners Include Verizon-

UPDATED: Who funds RightNetwork? Looks like the usual suspects.

Thanks JR MacBeth and NoHierarchy.

A few more pieces of the puzzle...


Koch-style online marketing and PR has convinced the American public they need an "alternative" to established networks. Now, they're being herded to RightNetwork…

The Right Network: Tea party on demand

Tired of the America-hating, Commie networks dominating the airways? Scared your children may be absorbing too much liberalism with the subliminal messaging subsidized by Obamacare? Well, today is your lucky day!

The Right Network was created to appeal to “Americans who are looking for content that reflects and reinforces their perspective and world-view,” with messages that are “pro-America,” “pro-business,” and “pro-military.” By simply clicking through to the on-demand section, viewers can enter an utopian conservative entertainment zone, complete with sitcoms and comedy geared to “real” America.

Kelsey Grammar, of Frasier and Cheers fame, is welcoming viewers with open arms to a place where everyone may not know your name, but they sure know your politics.

Never mind that the Koch Vision has our Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves. Forget that Corporate Rule is exactly what they feared and tried to protect against.

The Koch Dynasty is in position…

E1 Entertainment LP (formerly Koch Entertainment) is an entertainment company with offices in New York, Nashville, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Montreal, and Toronto. It is the largest independent music, television and film distributor in North America, and is distributed by the Universal Music Group in Europe and in Asia under the name E1 Universal. For over twenty years the company operated under the name Koch Entertainment, and was renamed E1 Entertainment on January 22, 2009.

"Right"-minded students looking for a career in media and communications will be nurtured and supported. Look for Koch-brand scholarships and fellowships, like these at PENN State College of Communications:

* Broadcast production: Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow Program, Institute for Humane Studies, Arlington, VA
* Print: Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow Program, Institute for Humane Studies, Arlington, VA

Just like the military, the Koch Dynasty might offer international travel to recruits…

Koch Media Milestones:
1994 – Founding of the group and establishment of subsidiaries in United Kingdom, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
2000 – Signs the London Racer series from Davilex. …Appointed as Lego Media’s exclusive UK distributor. Appointed as Steinbergs exclusive partner in the UK.
2001 – Appointed by Nintendo as a distribution partner for the UK.
2002 – Deep Silver established as a hard core gaming publisher… Acquires the famous Europress company from Atari
2006 – Koch to distribute Wii all over UK - appointed as Nintendo’s preferred distribution partner in the UK.
2008 – Following the successful launch of Deep Silver, Inc., Koch Media's branch in the USA, the group now extends its influence in Europe on a large scale as well. Koch Media is taking over the Spanish distribution company PROEIN S.L. from SCi Entertainment Group. As of the beginning of 2009, PROEIN S.L. has changed to Koch Media S.L.U.
2009 – announces expansion into the Benelux region, opens a dedicated office.

Koch Media took over the company PROEIN S.L., which will henceforth be called Koch Media S.L.U., from the SCi Entertainment Group in late July 2008, and thereby established a valuable foothold in Europe's fourth-largest software market.
Koch Media has been one of the leading distributors of digital entertainment products in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, and the UK since 1994. The company's products range from application software through PC and console games to DVDs.

...…E1 Entertainment (formerly Koch Media), a division of Koch Media (International?)

And for the all-important Social Network Marketing TROLL
International Species Development:

Online Marketing Europe - A Conference not to be missed!
…the exhibition will host some of the most renowned European companies and speakers:
* Bruce Hoang - Interactive Advertising Bureau
* Marcus Koch - BVWA [yep, just like that mysterious pesky malware]
…What makes this international online marketing congress stand out, are not only its eminent speakers, but its specific concentration and unique focus on online marketing on Europe.

...Vanity and Hubris?

Rachel Maddow has done a lot of great work on the Koch Brothers and their secret involvement with the Tea Party and funds for particular Conservative/Republican commercials.

Plus, isn't this the last thing we need? I mean is FOX News not enough for the Conservative crowed? I mean they do have Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. I'm guessing they plan and adopting even more far-right commentators and anchors.

The "RightNetwork" is scary. It's a 'social network' - news / propaganda broadcast center - it has everything possible with the internet.

imo - It's a straight rip-off of the "Above Network" - but "managed" - NOT open, NOT member driven, NOT nurturing of education and development - only "right" thinking members are welcome.

The "RightNetwork" will do for corporate fascism in America in 2011 what the Hitler Youth did for the Nazi Party in 1926.

I can foresee some competition between Fox (which is already huge) and the new "Right Network" which might not be a bad thing for moderates or the left. It could split the conservatives into further warring camps, something like the way the Tea Party is splitting the Republican party. Once the right begins attacking each other on the airwaves people might get a clue as to what is really motivating them.

The RightNetwork links to Fox.

Patterned after ATS and the Above Network, the RightNetwork offers right-thinking entertainment, news, free video on demand, a Facebook wall, Tweets and Twitters, interactive opps, a "voice" (polls) and more to right-thinking members only- everything possible from a multi-system operator (MSO). It's WiFi on steroids.

RightNetwork promises to do for America in 2011 what the Hitler Youth did for Nazi Germany in 1926.

RightNetwork equates corporate rights and freedoms with individual rights and freedoms, making a subtle and persistent argument for corporate government of the nation.

Prepare for a corporate takeover of government, the dissolution of democracy and the end of individual rights and freedoms. …Or fight back. Because this is the definitive conspiracy of our age. The outcome will determine the future of our nation and the world.

RIGHTNETWORK Launches Nationwide

"We've developed a platform where people can join the national conversation. A place where they can be inspired, laugh together, or just sit back and enjoy entertainment with a similar outlook and perspective," said Kevin McFeeley, President and Chief Operating Officer, RIGHTNETWORK.

…Full-featured and loaded with content, is the online destination for all things Right. RIGHTNETWORK has more than 3000 hours of video content, much of which will be available online in the WATCH area of the site. Also on

* VOICES - a section loaded with bylined Op-Ed content from a stable of contributors, including network spokesman Kelsey Grammer.
* FLAGGED - delivers rotating top lines of the day's latest headlines.
* COMMUNITY - a digital water cooler area, with an embedded feed from RIGHTNETWORK's Facebook wall and aggregated twitter feed ...A forum for discussion will also be available in this section of the website.
* BUZZ - this area shows what in-site content is most popular, detailing the number of views.

Weekly polls will also be hosted on the website...

…bringing the elusive 18?34, tech-savvy male demographic back to television and driving demand for additional digital services offered by MSOs.

Wow that's all we need

One more outlet for the REICH WING to lie to the public.
Isn't rush, beck, hannity and FOX enough? Do we really need yet another network dedicated to lying to the American people?
The sad part about this is that people actually believe the crap spewed by rush, beck, hannity and fox

There seems to be some question whether or not Koch Industries and Koch-Glitsch International are the same company. They are, and share the same address in Wichita, Kansas:

4111 E. 37th St. North
Wichita, KS 67220-3203

...Koch-Glitsch was formed in 1997 with the acquisition of selected assets of Glitsch, Inc. by Koch Engineering Company, Inc.
