Jewish Russian banking tycoon Vladimir Sloutsker plans to start an all-Jewish 24-hour international television news network to combat the anti-Israel and anti-Jewish bias coming out of networks like CNN, the BBC and Al Jazeera.

Sloutsker is also a Russian senator, and an outspoken supporter of President Vladimir Putin.
