Jesse Ventura Takes to Internet Television
LOS ANGELES – Politics – Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has started Off the Grid, a daily political news show that will be available online. The program, Off the Grid starts on January 27th, 2014 on www.ora.tv.
“News should be free – free meaning cost – and free of bias,” states Governor Ventura, who served a term as 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.”
Ventura Broadcasts to ‘Occupied America’
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” states Ventura in a media release. “Often it isn’t even factual because American news networks are occupied by the interests of major corporations,” Ventura adds. “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 insights into what the former governor views as the most pressing problems. Additionally, the show will feature the former governor’s takes on topics ranging from government hypocrisy, corporate deception, and current events.
Off the Grid will also feature Ventura in conversation with the world’s leading political and cultural minds as well as fellow conspiracy advocates. Ventura used to host “Conspiracy Theories” on History Channe..
Facebook and Twitter fans will also be able to ask Jesse Ventura for his views and opinions on important issues as well as providing questions for Ventura 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.
