Having successfully leveraged the labors of many tiny wingnuts into a commercial enterprise of sorts (Pajamas Media), which then provided a platform for "PJTV", a streaming video portal for wingnuts, Roger "The Hat" shows his appreciation by dumping them.
PJTV's watershed moment came when Roger hired Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher for some ace reportage from Israel. Flushed with that sucess, and the prospect of dinging thousands of losers between $15 and $37 per month to watch the likes of Glenn Reynolds and Victor David Hanson interview each other, and drawing on his extensive experience with Hollywood rejection letters, Roger sends out this:
As you know, last September Pajamas Media began a new initiative in Internet television called Pajamas TV. When we started with our RNC coverage from Minneapolis, we noted that we would be in a Beta Phase through the first quarter of 2009. In the last few months we have strengthened the PJTV lineup with shows covering Media Bias, Education Bias, Middle East Update, Sharia and Jihad, Powerline Report, Ask Dr. Helen, Hugh News, Poliwood, Conservatism 2.0, Economy and Finance, National Security, and others.
As the end of the first quarter approaches and we near the production phase of Pajamas TV, we will continue to build our emphasis in this area. As a result we have decided to wind down the Pajamas Media Blogger and advertising network effective March 31, 2009. The PJM portal and the XPressBlogs will continue as is.
Since our ad relationship continues for the time being, you should note that in order to be paid for the 1st quarter of 2009, you must leave the current Pajamas ads up until 12:01AM April 1. We will be sending you information in mid-March on removing the ads. As of April 1, 2009, you will be free to arrange syndication or re-sale deals.
We thank you very much for participating during the formative years of Pajamas Media and we look forward to working with you in other ways. One of those is, of course, Pajamas TV. If you have any ideas in that regard, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our best wishes in the new year and again our deepest gratitude for your participation in Pajamas Media.
Roger L. Simon
CEO, Pajamas Media
You got to give Charles some credit: knowing that the ponytail would never fly in TV Wingnutistan, he bailed some time ago....
