The most intriguing aspect of today’s TYT Network news is the background of the person at the head of equity fund Roemer, Robinson, Melville & Co.
Buddy Roemer is a former Louisiana Governor and, as such, has delivered to the former Current TV and current Internet gang the group’s first non-crowd-funded cash. From today’s announcement:
“RRM has been looking for two years to find the best platform in New Media in which to invest,” said Roemer. “We believe TYT will be one of the critical players moving forward in a new media world – edgy, unfiltered news commentary at its best. They are a lot like me, sometimes wrong but never in doubt.”
