Business and News from The Golden State
What happens when the mainstream media is owned by the corporations and isn’t diligently investigating or reporting the news? Tune in online on January 27th, 2014 to find out. Jesse Ventura and Ora.TV are presenting Off The Grid – a daily political news show available online.
“News should be free – free meaning cost – and free of bias,” said Jesse Ventura, the 38th governor of Minnesota. “I will present stories you need to hear, the news that affects us all – globally, nationally, and locally – that you won’t hear anywhere else.”
The newest edition to Ora.TV, Jesse Ventura will be hosting Off The Grid from an undisclosed location in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, and broadcasting into what he considers “Occupied America.”
“The news is dumbed down, based solely on ratings, and often isn’t even factual because American news networks are occupied by the interests of major corporations,” Ventura explains. “My show will be off the grid in the sense that I will be off of the corporate payroll; I won’t answer to some guy upstairs, giving me orders on what to report or how to report.”
Off The Grid will offer Jesse Ventura’s electrifying insight into the nation’s most pressing problems as well as unleash the former governor’s takes on topics ranging from government hypocrisy, to corporate deception, to current events. It will also feature Ventura in conversation with the world’s leading political and cultural minds as well as fellow conspiracy savants. Facebook and Twitter fans can also chime in by asking Jesse Ventura’s opinion on important issues or providing questions for him to ask upcoming guests.
The show’s tagline is certainly apropos: “No suits, no censors, no red tape. Just Jesse Ventura as we like him: bold, brazen, and bare knuckled.”
Ora.TV also produces Larry King’s Larry King Now and Larry King’s Politicking; the site’s major investor is América Móvil, the Latin American wireless service provider majority owned by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.
