NEW YORK— Is it time to make television great again?
The buzz has been out there for a while, but according to the Financial Times, Presidential Candidate Donald Trump`s son-in-law has already approached an investor pitching him - get this - Trump TV.
The conversation between Jared Kushner - the lucky guy that Ivanka married - and Liontree founder Aryeh Bourkoff was reported as short, and it hasn't progressed since. But could this signal “yuge”things for tv after this November?
TV stations are big business - big! But maybe it isn't just about money. Maybe this is Trump`s attempt at fixing, as he tweets, the “dishonest and distorted media pushing crooked Hillary?”
“The election is being rigged by corrupt media pushing completely false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect her president,” said Donald Trump at a recent speech.
Ron Paul gave his best effort at a media channel after his failed 2008 and 2012 presidential primary attempts. The former U.S. Representative from Texas kept his brand online, where as 'Trump TV' would probably attempt to balance the powers of “the mainstream media” on cable.
In September, Trump told the Washington Post he had no interest in a media company if he lost the election, but come on... that was so last month!
If he does launch Trump TV, he better hope his ratings numbers are better than the latest poll numbers.
