Even though the site isn’t launching until fall, Jason Stapleton’s LibertyONE.tv is piquing the interests of the liberty-minded.
The network’s mission is to promote and advance the idea of individual liberty and free market economics.
Stapleton, in an exclusive interview with Truth In Media’s Joshua Cook, said that he wants the network to be the go-to for video and education. He said he’d like the network to be, “The video arm of the liberty movement, and eventually a news outlet.”
“It’s going to start out small at first, but my plan is for it to grow into something very, very large,” he explained. “My long term goal is to have something that rivals RT America and eventually Fox News. One of the downsides of RT America is, while they do some good work, they’re Russian-subsidized media, and they’re never going to have the credibility of an independent news organization would have that’s promoting a lot of the same things.”
Stapleton said the site would have site-generated content, as well as curated items from other organizations.
“We’re going to produce some of our own content. We’re going to produce some of our own investigative stuff, hopefully in cooperation with guys like Truth In Media. Then we’re also going to be assembling really great content from around the Internet and around the world,” he said.
Stapleton also said that there would be a place for the opposition, as well.
“I don’t mind having discussions and debates with socialists, as long as we can meet on an even playing field,” he said. “What I hate is when it degrades into this shouting match online where a bunch of people who have nameless, faceless voices end up yelling and screaming and cursing at each other.”
Once the site is launched, the content won’t be subscription based. The revenue from the site will come from advertising and distribution.
Stapleton said he didn’t want to force people to pay to see content, or pay to learn about something.
