thetyee.ca Building a Left Wing CNN: "Independent World Television will go public on June 15. The goal, as bold as it is big, is to create an alternative news and current affairs network that is, as its name implies, global in reach and free from corporate or government pressures.

The network’s success depends on changing the economics of media, with an audacious plan to raise $25 million a year made up of $50 donations from half a million people around the world. Money from business, advertisers and government will be prohibited."

From this Canadian site. Janeane Garofalo and Laura Flanders are on their advisory board. Other friends of Air America on their Advisory Board include Greg Palast, Howard Zinn, and Gore Vidal.

They are launching their web site on June 15.
