Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN), also known as Right Side Broadcasting, is a conservative American media company founded by Joe Seales in 2015. They are best known for their live stream coverage of Donald Trump rallies on their YouTube channel. [1]

History[edit]

On July 11, 2015, Joe Seales flew to Phoenix, Arizona to see 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump at a rally. Seales began live streaming the rally from his camera and then uploaded his video to YouTube. After the video quickly amassed a million views, Seales realized there was a demand for unedited Trump footage. Thus, Seales established Right Side Broadcasting in order to "show the full context" of Trump's speeches.[2][3]

After RSBN began taking off, Seales and his family moved to Opelika, Alabama, as the town had just equipped itself with $43 million worth of high-speed fiber optic cables. He and his wife transformed their new home into a news studio, hiring producers and on-air talent. Since then, RSBN has accumulated hundreds of millions of views on its YouTube channel.[4]

Platforms[edit]

Since 2015, RSBN has uploaded all of their videos, including live streams of Donald Trump rallies, interviews, press briefings, and podcasts to their YouTube channel. RSBN also uploads content to their Twitter and Facebook pages.[5] [6][7]

In December 2020, the company began uploading content to the video streaming service, Rumble. [8]

2016–2019 coverage[edit]

During the summer of 2016, the company started several shows with Wayne Dupree and pastor Mark Burns.[1] During the third presidential debate in 2016, Donald Trump live streamed RSBN's coverage of the debates on his Facebook page.[9][10] In October 2016, the company received $40,000 in donations.[11]

On October 24, in collaboration with the RSBN, Trump launched a nightly newscast on his Facebook page.[12][13] Several commentators wondered whether the company may collaborate with Trump to form "Trump TV".[13][14] Seales, in response, told Business Insider that the speculation was "unfounded."[15] Trump told WLW that he was not interested in setting up the company after the election.[16][17]

According to Seales, Trump "watched the network a lot" on his private jet during his 2016 presidential campaign and that Trump appreciated the company for showing his crowds.[15] Seales has also stated that he was in regular communication with Dan Scavino, Trump's director of social media.[11]

In 2016, RSBN was the official live streaming platform for the Trump campaign's Facebook page, where their footage reached almost 300 million views.[18] Their YouTube channel grossed almost 120 million views.[19]

On December 7, 2016, Right Side Broadcasting Network was given access to the White House Press Room during Donald Trump's presidency.[20] After Trump's press conference on January 11, 2017, Drudge Report featured the network's feed on their front page.[11][21]

On January 19, 2017, the network live-streamed the DeploraBall.[22]

2020 presidential election coverage[edit]

Right Side Broadcasting Network continued covering all of the campaign rallies for President Donald Trump from the beginning of 2020. The first 2020 campaign rally took place in Toledo, Ohio on January 9, 2020.[23] RSBN covered campaign rallies for Trump until he took a hiatus from campaigning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[24] RSBN began covering campaign rallies once more after President Trump began campaigning again with his June 2020 rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.[25] RSBN also covered Trump's speech and fireworks celebration at Mount Rushmore on July 3, 2020.[26]

Over the span of the 2020 presidential election, RSBN's coverage of Donald Trump's campaign rallies grossed over 127 million views on YouTube.[27]

Post-2020 presidential election[edit]

RSBN's broadcasts after the 2020 presidential election have focused on unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud.[28] It covered a bus tour hosted by Amy Kremer to support Donald Trump's attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election and to encourage attendance at the January 6 rally that was followed by the storming of the U.S. Capitol by Trump's supporters.[28]

Following the November 3rd presidential election, Right Side Broadcasting Network covered legal hearings alleging voter fraud in the election.[29]

RSBN covered both Trump rallies in Georgia for senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.[30][31] They also covered Trump's speech at the "Save America Rally" in Washington, D.C. on January 6, a speech that was ultimately followed by the storming of the Capitol.[32] [33]

In December 2020, RSBN reached over one million subscribers on YouTube.[34] In January 2021, RSBN reached almost 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube. [35]

Notable figures[edit]

RSBN has hosted and interviewed famous guests on their network. People such as Diamond and Silk and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell have made multiple appearances. The network has interviewed notable people such as Charlie Kirk, Jack Posobiec, Angela Stanton-King, and Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.[36] Father Frank Pavone has made multiple appearances on RSBN's channel and began hosting "Praying for the President" after the November 3, 2020 presidential election.[37]
