Jesse Ventura ‘Off The Grid’ – Week 1

Monday, January 27th marked the premiere of Jesse Ventura’s online show “Off The Grid” on Ora.

The newest edition to Ora.TV, Jesse Ventura will be hosting Off The Grid from an undisclosed location in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, and broadcasting into what he considers “Occupied America.”

“Broadcasting from Mexico gives me a unique perspective about the news because I’m not tainted by what’s going on in the states,” says Jesse Ventura, the 38th governor of Minnesota. “I won’t be covering something because every other news network is covering it.”

Off The Grid will offer Jesse Ventura’s electrifying insight into the nation’s most pressing problems as well as unleash the former governor’s takes on topics ranging from government hypocrisy, to corporate deception, to current events. It will also feature Ventura in conversation with the world’s leading political and cultural minds as well as fellow conspiracy savants.

“The American people deserve to know more about what’s really going on in the world. Justin Bieber has no right to make the news. He isn’t news,” says Ventura. “What’s going on in the Ukraine right now? That’s news. The fact that the company responsible for two chemical spills in West Virginia’s drinking water is trying to skirt out of lawsuits by claiming bankruptcy? That’s news.”

For the show’s debut, Off The Grid will air Monday through Friday. Episodes will be posted online at 12 pm PST / 3 pm EST at www.ora.tv/OffTheGrid and www.youtube.com/JesseVentura and they will be available for immediate viewing at anytime.

After this week, the show will go to a Tuesday through Friday schedule, with a unique behind-the-scenes blog post on Mondays on http://OffTheGridBlog.ora.tv that includes a written and video component from Jesse Ventura. Facebook and Twitter fans can also chime in by asking Jesse Ventura’s opinion on important issues or providing questions for him to ask upcoming guests.

“The news is dumbed down, based solely on ratings, and often isn’t even factual because American news networks are occupied by the interests of major corporations,” states Jesse Ventura. “My show will be off the grid in the sense that I will be off of the corporate payroll; I won’t answer to some guy upstairs, giving me orders on what to report or how to report.”

    I don’t think folks should be so quick to condemn him based on his past. Yes, he was a wrestler. But he was also an elected Gubner too. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    If he wasn’t such a flamming huge egomaniac, he’d not be quite as obnoxious. Why can’t we have one half decent politician?

    The World Wrestling Foundation lost the court battle with the World Wildlife Fund, for the rights to the acronym, I believe basically because they had it first.
