Right Network Takes Off

Yesterday marked the launch of Right Network. Kelsey Grammer's online lineup includes programs like "Running," a documentary that follows rookie candidates for office as they try to upset the congressional apple cart. Another offering is "Right2Laugh," which will showcase conservative comedians doing their standup acts.

ABC News reports:

"Jeff Cohen, an Ithaca College journalism professor and liberal activist, questioned whether the kind of audience that likes conservative talk shows want something similar in entertainment, and whether it can be pulled off.

"Comedy requires irony," Cohen said. "It can't be frothing with hate or fear. Drama requires complexity. It can't be all black and white."

Well, gosh, Jeff. We'll try to keep our hate and fear under wraps. In the meantime enjoy the promo. And check it out at
