      (Axios) President Trump has told friends he wants to start a digital media company to clobber Fox News and undermine the conservative-friendly network, sources tell Axios.

      (skip)

      Here’s Trump’s plan, according to the source:

      There’s been lots of speculation about Trump starting a cable channel. But getting carried on cable systems would be expensive and time-consuming.
      Instead, Trump is considering a digital media channel that would stream online, which would be cheaper and quicker to start.
      Trump’s digital offering would likely charge a monthly fee to MAGA fans.

      Many are Fox News viewers, and he’d aim to replace the network — and the $5.99-a-month Fox Nation streaming service, which has an 85% conversion rate from free trials to paid subscribers — as their top destination.
      Trump’s database of email and cellphone contacts would be a huge head start.

      As we already can see digital media is growing – Jimmy Dore, Krystal Ball and Saagar, Kim Iverson, Tim Black, etc. I’m waiting to see how the establishment media will try to squash the growing Independent news channels, and now, how they would deal with a digital Trump channel.

      I prefer online digital news channels to watching FOX, CNN or MSNBC on cable TV, or watching the other corporate news networks.

      There’s a sucker born every minute, and lots of them are subject to being sucked into a cult, so digitize away, Donnie Boy! Hit Murdoch in the pocketbook if you can! No skin off my back.

      Plus, this will make it that much harder for the corporate media to crush independent digital media, as Gordy mentioned above.

      The official reason is that they apostasized by calling Arizona prematurely. But really it’s just a business decision.

      The intelligence community.

      The media.

      and his supporters.

      No one else will bother with it. That’s not a lot of people.

        More than enough for either a digital or cable news network.

          but Trump likes to make more money than that. He’ll be upset that it doesn’t bring in hundreds of millions of dollars sooner. Remember, he’s not a good businessman.

      He will run off with hundreds of millions and crash and burn the business. But it will be fun watching.
