Fox News may soon have some conservative competition. The owner of WealthTV is teaming with the Washington Times to launch One America News, which plans to debut July 1 with a 24-hour schedule of news and conservative political talk, the Wall Street Journal reports. Charles Herring, president of One America News, says the San Diego-based network expects to start with modest distribution between 10 million and 20 million homes. Herring said his family’s Herring Broadcasting is investing “hundreds of millions” of dollars into what he describes as a much needed alternative to the current situation. “MSNBC skews left, and some argue that CNN skews left,” Herring said, and only Fox “skews right”. Herring plans “to open up another front and give independents, libertarians and all kind of different voices under the conservative umbrella an opportunity to express themselves.” One America will start with a staff of between 30 and 40 people and will use the Washington Times as its D.C. bureau, leasing studio space and using its reporters on-camera. The Times will also help sell ads and take a cut of the revenue.
