President Trump just can’t quit using his popularity, resources, and genius at marketing to conjure up more ways for the right to tackle the left’s supremacy in the culture, particularly in social media and entertainment.
First came Truth Social, an awesome Twitter competitor that’s finally getting off the ground and that he’s finally posting on.
Then came Truth’s partnership with Rumble, which ties the best non-Big Tech video service with the Twitter competitor that’s likely to rise to the top.
And Trump is apparently planning on mixing up the entertainment landscape.
News on that comes from his media company, which with one recent announcement, looks poised to shatter the leftist dominance of streaming and bring about a conservative-focused streaming service, as the Daily Mail discovered and wrote about in a recent report, saying:
Former President Donald Trump’s media company has begun hiring staff for its video streaming platform as it seeks to build a MAGA challenger to mainstream providers such as Netflix, Hulu and Disney+.
In recruitment adverts posted on Wednesday, the Trump Media and Technology Group announced it was seeking a content buyer and a development manager to create programming for its TMTG+ service.
The service is part of Trump’s attempt to build an alternative media ecosystem after being kicked off Facebook and YouTube in the wake of the January 6 violence last year.
That would be huge, and obviously quite profitable for Trump. What has given Fox such a step up is that it’s the one nominally conservative cable channel; whereas the leftists all have to squabble for market share, conservatives all turn on Fox.
Trump could now have that situation for entertainment and streaming if he plays his cards right, but for the vastly more popular streaming market.
Imagine the profits, and thus better content, that could come if half the country ditched Netflix, Disney+, etc. and switched to Trump’s content instead. It would be amazing.
Further, it would be a major rebuke of the tech giants and dominant streaming platforms, showing them that the average American consumer is sick and tired of their nonsense and ready to start watching entertaining content again rather than having to sift through mounds of leftists drivel just to watch a movie at night.
And, finally, it might be a way for conservatives to find some content that they actually enjoy watching. Here’s how the Daily Mail describes what the service might be:
The advert suggests TMTG+ will offer a wide range of programs – some original and some bought in – much like other existing platforms.
‘Trump Media & Technology Group’s streaming video on demand service will be a “Big Tent” platform offering broad-based entertainment rooted in free speech,’ it says.
‘In addition to the social media platform Truth Social, our SVOD platform TMTG+ will be the home for a wide variety of non-scripted, scripted, and original content.’
So basically a conservative Netflix or Amazon Prime video. What could be better, at least when it comes to entertainment resources?!
Now let’s just hope and pray it’s more successful than CNN+. Avoiding hiring Chris Wallace and those like him, as seems reasonable to expect of Trump, will certainly help it avoid that fate.
