Socialist Girlfriend/Boyfriend Start ‘Anti-Capitalist’ Streaming Service For Ten Dollars a Month

The title alone says it all, doesn’t it?

Why aren’t rich people paying $200 a month and poor people paying nothing?

Detroit Free Press-

A young Detroit couple who helped controversial New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez win election last year as a democratic socialist are now launching a pro-socialism media company from their house on the city’s east side.

Their company, Means TV, is an Internet-only web streaming service that, for a monthly $10 subscription, would offer entertainment programming with “pro-worker” and “anti-capitalist” viewpoints, including original TV shows, talk shows, comedy sketches, reality TV and on-the-ground reporting.

The service is the brainchild of filmmakers Naomi Burton, 29, and Nick Hayes, 22, a girlfriend-boyfriend duo who gained national attention last year for producing a campaign video for Ocasio-Cortez that went viral and helped to propel the formerly unknown candidate to an upset Democratic primary victory.

Means TV began releasing preview videos last month and Burton and Hayes are aiming to raise $500,000 through the website by May 30. That amount could finance an initial year of programming, which would roll out late this year or early 2020, they said.

  1. “…are aiming to raise $500,000 through the website by May 30. That amount could finance an initial year of programming…”

    And when that fails, they’ll roll out their Five Year Plan. We’ve seen this show before, kids.

  2. Ten bucks a month? Do they tack on local/state/fed taxes as a surprise on the second month?

    I want it free, otherwise they’re just capitalists posing as fake socialists.

  3. “would offer entertainment programming with “pro-worker” and “anti-capitalist” viewpoints, including original TV shows, talk shows, comedy sketches, reality TV and on-the-ground reporting”

    As if that market isn’t already super saturated (CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, TNT, CNN, Comedy Central, ESPN, MSNBC, etc). Then again, no one every said that socialists were intelligent.

  4. Means TV – shouldn’t I just have to pay what I can afford? Basically the same as Chipolte charging you $12 for an E. coli burrito in a brown paper bag that says everyone deserves a free lunch.

  5. Remember, girlfriend/boyfriend, you’re nothing without your followers. Watch what you say, comrades. And be really careful what you stream. Could get really problematic very fast if you trigger the wrong NPCs.
