The MOC Report
Organized by: Arif Tayebali
Hello, My name is Arif Tayebali and I’m independent blogger for various financial news sites. I’m looking to raise money to help finance a satirical comedy Web series about the handling of financial news by the mainstream news outlets and show the world a newer fresher approach. I call it The MOC Report (Market on Close). Over the past decade, pioneering shows like “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report” have changed how millennials and gen-Xers consume daily national / global political news content. As an avid younger viewer myself, it’s much easier to watch one these recap shows with a twist of humor and satire rather than a CNN, let alone local news. Granted most of the news consumed these days is via tweets, its appealing to have a daily show that recaps news that is subtle humorous yet very disturbing. While the current content delivery strategy for mainstream financial news outlets is antiquated, formulaic, and boring, we look to disrupt the entire industry’s approach with our programming model. All funds will be used for production (talent, crew, post-production, etc).
