Hot Air takes off
No, I don't mean Jack Layton's running away.
Hot Air is a new video blog venture by Michelle Malkin
Welcome to the world’s first full-service conservative Internet broadcast network!
Internet video is booming. Apple’s iTunes store has sold a gazillion videos since its debut. YouTube gets more traffic than the New York Times web site. And politically-oriented video is on the rise:
- Google teamed up with Al Gore’s Current TV network to provide Google Current.
- Amazon.com broadcasts Fishbowl featuring left-wing comedian Bill Maher.
- iTunes offers a discount price for Comedy Central’s liberal Daily Show.
- AOL joined with the Huffington Post to provide Contagious Festival, a collection of conservative-bashing short movies.
These efforts have one thing in common: they are all produced by liberals for liberals.
I formed Hot Air Network, LLC, to bring ideological diversity—because we all love diversity–to the videoblogging world. And because it looked like a lot of fun. Two of the most cutting-edge bloggers on the Right have joined me in my cyberquest: video editing whiz Bryan Preston and the almighty Allah Pundit. Allah likes to think of us as a little Internet garage band. Only we’re playing in three separate home offices and a basement. But you get the idea.
