The Christian Broadcasting Network Set to Launch 24-Hour News Channel
"A Christian TV network is entering the crowded world of 24-hour news broadcasting at a time when the mainstream news media is under increasing attack by President Donald Trump and some of his supporters, many of them evangelicals.
The Christian Broadcasting Network`s news channel will provide a religious perspective that other channels lack, CEO Gordon Robertson told The Associated Press in an interview in advance of the network`s formal launch Monday.
The CBN News Channel, to air on local television stations in 15 U.S. cities, will produce original programming and commentary on everything from the power of prayer to Justin Bieber`s faith and Christian persecution in the Middle East."
The Fox News Channel is the propaganda arm for the Trump administration. The president begins every day by tuning into - and live-tweeting - the network`s morning show, Fox and Friends. I always wondered who the aforementioned friends are, now we know it`s everybody in the Trump regime.
The Fox News evening lineup of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity and The Ingraham Angle are the most vociferous defenders of Donald Trump.
But if you think the Fox News cable outlet is embarrassingly pro-Trump, you ain`t seen nothing yet. The Christian Broadcasting Network`s news channel will launch Monday, and it will make Fox News seem as unbiased as the BBC.
The leading anchor of the news channel will be CBN`s chief political analyst, David Brody, the same objective reporter who co-authored the book, "The Faith of Donald J. Trump."
Brody will bring his reporter`s notepad and a sack of softballs to his new studio where he will interview Trump administration officials.
The new channel will provide a religious perspective that secular news outlets lack. The evangelical perspective on politics can be summarized thusly: Donald Trump and Republican leaders are on a mission from God to Make America Great Again, and the Democrats, inspired by Satan, are seeking to thwart their divine mission.
My cable providers offers me over 500 channels, and believe me, I won`t be asking them to add CBN`s news channel to their menu.
