Check Out Reason.tv right now!

|

We're extremely happy and proud to announce the launch of Reason.tv, a brand-spanking-new site that will be the home of a series of video-journalism pieces created by the incomparable Drew Carey.

Reason.tv will also provide a one-stop site for all sorts of video related to reason magazine and the good folks at reason foundation, the nonprofit that publishes the print and online editions of America's only media outlet devoted to "Free Minds and Free Markets."

At Reason.tv right now, you'll find a tantalizing preview of the work Drew is doing, as well as choice clips from recent TV appearances by reason staffers such as Nick Gillespie (on Bill Moyers' Journal), Jacob Sullum (being called a pinhead by Bill O'Reilly!), Brian Doherty (discussing Milton Friedman's legacy of liberty), Kerry Howley (on Fox News' Weekend Live), and Radley Balko (testifying before Congress on your inalienable right to gamble online). There's also a great video blog called rough cut.

It's all at Reason.tv. Go there five minutes ago.

NEXT: We Can Be Heroes, Just For One AAAAUGH!

  1. was this posted by the disembodied head behind the curtain in Reason’s underground bunker?

  2. Awesome.

    Totally, completely awesome.

    Hurray!

  3. Dude.

    I’ll check it out when I get home. I’m going to take a wild guess that it won’t work from where I am now.

    Pity.

  4. but seriously this is awesome

  5. ooh I just had a freedomgasm. great idea, reason staff, may these videos spread like wildfire (they’ll be uploaded to youtube, right?).

  6. You Tube, sure, viral wildfire good, but cable television better.

    I fantasized before about what Reason would be like on television (An “On the Other Hand with Cathy” segment; Cavanaugh reviewing zombie movies), and this is something like what I’d imagined.

    I just hope they don’t end up on PBS. Seeing Gillespie in the KCET studio during pledge drives, over publicly misappropriated airwaves, that might be too much for Real Libertarians. Why the condemnation thread here at Hit & Run would probably get over a hundred hits!

    …and we just can’t have that. ;(

    Eh, screw the Real Libertarians–I want my Reason TV!

  7. Video killed the magazine star.

  8. oh, man, Sage – the site rocks!

    congratulations to the Reason team! It is teh Ausumz!!!!111oneoneone!!!!lolz!

  9. Any luck getting the Nick clips from Showtime where he called everybody who supports border security “racists”? I suspect that the raw footage will show Nick to be a victim of editing.

  10. The O’Reilly segment is almost unbearable to watch. It must be hell having to deal with such morons to promote a book.

  11. The O’Reilly segment is almost unbearable to watch. It must be hell having to deal with such morons to promote a book.

    I was about to say the same thing

    37 MILLION AMERICANS OMG!!!!one!!!!11

  12. Reason TV! This looks to be lotsa fun. Can we get FOX and CNN to take it? They both certainly need it.

    Go there five minutes ago.

    Yeah, and I wanna time travel too. But is there any arrangement of matter and energy from the past that is still there to go to? How can time travel into the future be compatible with free will? Did Hugh Everett have anything to say on these considerations?

  13. Wow! Very nice! Kudos, Reason!

  14. Someone needs to kick BOR in the balls. Hard.

  15. Awesome!

  16. man i love the look on jacob’s face at the beginning, like someone who’s going to get a root canal from an epileptic clown.

  17. oddly enough, he was right about the clown part.

  18. Yeah, and I wanna time travel too. But is there any arrangement of matter and energy from the past that is still there to go to? How can time travel into the future be compatible with free will? Did Hugh Everett have anything to say on these considerations?

    Not that big a deal, I stopped time traveling 28 years from now.

    That other stuff is crap you talk about in time travel class. In the real world hardly anybody discusses it unless they wind up in a Student Union or magazine writer’s conf. room.

  19. “like someone who’s going to get a root canal from an epileptic clown.”
    hier?

  20. I saw the pinhead segment live.

    What did I win?

  21. twc: mental anguish?

  22. I saw the pinhead segment live.

    What did I win?

    The respect of all of us if you managed to watch Bill ‘O for the entire hour.

  23. This is a wonderful idea, Reason is the right organization to capture free-market video media on the internet.

    My question is why devote a whole different site to this? You have a user base on reason.com that would be most interested in this stuff, why not intergrate the video material on this site in a way that is unobtrussive to text-philes? Seperating content by media type is probably not your best bet.

  24. dhex & Cesar, it was excruciating. Mrs TWC & I groaned and boo’d from our bleacher seats. But of course, we expected O’Reilly’s head to explode.

  25. Why are you doing this? I have work to do. What is wrong with you people? Don’t I spend enough time being addicted to your informative articles and op-eds?

  26. I hope carey’s better here. He got bitchslapped by Bill Maher on the healthcare thing. Or rather, Maher immediately went on the attack and didn’t let Drew say anything.

  27. Someone should do a tribute to the Pacific island of Tuvalu, to whom you owe the suffix distinction. I’ll start!

    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Tuvalu):

    –“Virtually the only jobs in the islands that pay a steady wage or salary are with the government. ”

    –“Government revenues largely come from sales of stamps and coins, fishing licenses, income from the TTF [Tuvalu Trust Fund], and from the lease of its highly fortuitous .tv Internet Top Level Domain (TLD).” Don’t forget foreign aid and 900 numbers!

    [from the main article]
    –“It has diplomatic relations with the Republic of China (Taiwan); Taiwan maintains the only resident embassy in Tuvalu and has a large assistance program in the islands.”

  28. I hate how Maher just said, “BUT EVERYTHING WORKED WHEN THE DEMOCRATS WERE IN POWER!”. Stupid Team Blue shill. I don’t mind stoners, but stoners who want the government cleaning up after them (Maher) can go to hell.

  29. The O’Reilly segment is making me want to throw things. I can’t throw things while I’m at work, guys.

    This reason.tv thing is gonna be my ruin.

    I LOVE IT!

  30. Not that big a deal, I stopped time traveling 28 years from now.

    That was good, Guy!

  31. ed:

    Video killed the magazine star.

    Nice!

  32. Has anybody really examined how practical the libertarian agenda is? Take a look at:
    http://podcasts.bsalert.com/
    for an interview with an anarcho-capitalist libertarian and a discussion of how this government would operate.

  33. The Bill Maher appearance really got to me, just on a superficial level because of the way he immediately shot drew down. I would’ve mentioned the post office as a talking point, at least the audience would’ve got it.

  34. you’d probably get more hits if you name it kerryhowley.tv

  35. Are the Radley Balko appearances on Mythbusters on there? That would be cool.

  36. Will this guy get time on camera to discuss Second Amendment issues?
