Western North Carolina News Network Launches

Attention all BlueNCers!

From the Press Release:

"Western North Carolina News Network (WNCNN), created by local political organizer, Gordon D. Smith, is political satire presented as a cable news program in the vein of Steven Colbert's The Colbert Report and Jon Stewart's The Daily Show. WNCNN will air weekly on Mondays on numerous internet sites including YouTube.com beginning on September 18, 2006. The series intends to highlight the shortcomings of Republican incumbent Congressman Charles H. Taylor through the use of satire, sarcasm, and visual humor.

Smith says of the show, "Too many people are turned off by dryly produced news programs and nasty campaign ads. WNCNN is a way to learn more about Charles Taylor and have a good laugh at the same time." Exclusively aired on internet sites, WNCNN's target audience is made up of the "netroots", a broad-based demographic of politically minded internet users. The weekly series will be available at Youtube.com (http://www.youtube.com/user/wncnn), DailyKos, MyDD, BlueNC, Scrutiny Hooligans, and a host of other political blogs and websites. "Scores of political blogs and websites will link to the series and will advertise it through a graphic logo at their sites," Smith added, "We expect to have 10,000 viewers for our first episode, and we'll see where it goes from there".

WNCNN is not affiliated with any campaign or political organization. It is an example of netroots activism with a sense of humor. The weekly series will, through newsdesk style performance and on-the-scene "reporting", lampoon the record and reputation of Congressman Taylor. "It's all in good fun," Smith says, "and it's a good way for people to learn more about the incumbent." To view the first installment and future installments, go to http://www.youtube.com/user/wncnn. To contact the show's creators, writers, actors, and producers, email them at wncnn@yahoo.com."

PS: On YouTube you didn't put "North Carolina" as a tag.
 
“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.”
So enjoy the Drama.

If you'd be willing to drop a link to the launch announcement or the Youtube addy during your voyages through the internets today, the crack staff at WNCNN will appreciate it muchly.

Also, if you know how to get the YouTube embed code to work at Kos and MyDD, a tutorial would be helpful. When I pasted it in, the preview just showed me the code instead of the embedded video. Selah.

Shuler YES, Taylor NO!

God, ahm a-fearin' already!

A most hair-raising hairpiece.

That was so funny, it made me pee in my depends!

I am looking forward to the next installment!

Fab post Screwy!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Shuler YES, Taylor NO!

Shuler YES, Taylor NO!

What fun....for you....

Up in the coves outside Old Fort, we ain't got no cable, ain't got no DSL, ain't got none of this new fangled connectivity stuff. They tell me 2010 if we're real lucky. I guess I'll just go about my ways of puttin Heath signs in yards and leave all the fast tubes to the rest of the world. :-(

congrats on the launch!

Shuler YES, Taylor NO!

randalt, you live in Old Fort?

the first time I ever passed that sign, I did a double take...thought it said "Old Fart"!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Ha!

Hey, I've been called the Old Fart from Old Fort before, so you're not alone! We live in an old neighborhood by a Geyser. With that one, they call me the geezer by the geyser. The older I get, the easier it is to pick on me! Ha!

Shuler YES, Taylor NO!

Ok, now I got to change myself...
