Seriously, It Looks Like TrumpTV Just Launched

Graphics. A news-crawl. And 200,000 live viewers.

Donald Trump/Facebook Live


There’s a “news crawl,” broadcast graphics, pretty decent audio, campaign ads, and a 200,000-plus audience. As the candidates prepared for a monumental political tussle on-stage in Las Vegas for the third and final presidential debate, Donald Trump posted this Facebook Live video, with the accompanying comment: “If you’re tired of biased, mainstream media reporting (otherwise known as Crooked Hillary’s super PAC), tune into my Facebook Live broadcast.” Is this the start of Trump TV?

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
