We decided to debut TheRebel.media's new crowdfunded TV studio during live coverage of the October 19 federal election returns.
Sure, that was a risky decision. Construction had only finished just a few days before the first show!
Over the course our two-hour-plus broadcast, we had a few glitches with lighting and audio.
Yet overall, the show went really well and audience reaction was positive.
Last night, over 100,000 individual Canadians came to TheRebel.media; compare that with Peter Mansbridge on CBC, who gets about 700,000 viewers on a typical night.
And we attracted those viewers without a penny of government funding, or even a marketing budget.
The next step? TheRebel.media will launch its daily one-hour TV program.
It's all part of our vow to be a major journalistic force during the Justin Trudeau years -- especially now that the rest of Canada's already meager "conservative" media is in disarray.
Thanks to all TheRebel.media viewers and donors who made that possible! There's more to come.

The CBC: Irrelevant, arrogant, biased. It’s time to pull the plug!
