"Indie Channel" Home Eludes Al

Darn, lost another loan to Ditech.

The NY Post tells the sad tale of Barry Diller giving the "Nyet' to Al Gore when it comes passing his control of News World International over to Al for his "vision." But just what is that vision today?

Gore envisions creating a youth-oriented cable news network with a left-leaning political slant.

The group advising Gore - which includes big Democratic Party fund-raiser Joel Hyatt, who is Gore's largest financial backer - is deciding whether to locate the network in San Francisco or New York.

Two names for the channel are being debated: The Indie Channel and VTV.

Oh, those frustrating locating and naming debates. So crucial, even before you've got anything to locate and name.

We're here to help, because the answers are obvious.

1)Location, Location, Location: That would be San Francisco. The best town in the world if you need to be told you are saving the world while losing your shirt.

2) What's in a name besides the whole game? Once you're in San Francisco, your choices are made for you: The IndyNewsNetwork Channel or STDV. Take your pick.

I love that a project that's the brainchild of and bankolled exclusively by lefty democrats is considering the name "The Indie Channel."
