While it is sad, this is just the bubble circling the wagons.

There are fewer and fewer safe havens for people that want shows that are overtly racist--so they are honing in on those safe havens where bone in rib-eyes of racism are cooked well done and served with ketchup.

I applaud your efforts.  I turned on Fox News because Trump is supposed to speak soon.  My blood pressure is going up because there are people who believe this.

How much of the TV viewing population is even still watching live broadcasts? There's a reason most networks are more concerned with time-shifted views than live audiences.

None of them has any credibility until they return to the studio instead of cowering from the hoax pandemic.

Tucker, Hannity, and Faux News are gonna get a lot of people killed. More than they normally get killed.

Read yesterday that some think he may be gearing up to run for president in 2024.  The GOP is going to need to change tactics if Trump loses and I'd worry about them going in the populist direction that Carlson often espouses.

Watching Fox News has to be classified as a legitimate mental illness.  These people need our help.

Sadly, as someone watching in horror from the sidelines up here in Canuckistan, you are correct. As the pandemic ravages the southern US over the summer and racism keeps bubbling at the surface I think Americans are going to start shooting at each other.

My parents used to be Fox News watchers.

I say used to be.

I put parental locks on their television so they can't access that station anymore. My dad thought he'd be sneaky and watch it through the Fox News website, but I put parental locks on their computers next so they can't access it anymore.

Needless to say, they were pissed. I didn't particularly care. They've asked my sister more than a few times to undo them, but she's refused each time. Yes, my parents are grown adults not children, but I don't need them watching that filth. I'd rather come home to visit and find them watching hardcore pornography than that shiat. They hate Trump, so that's one thing in their favor, but still. Fox News is banned, verboten, persona non grata in any home I'm in, my sister's in, or they're in, forever, until they die.

You know how when you have been out walking in the desert on a hot day and drunk no water and when you finally take a whiz, your urine is really dark and brown and concentrated?
This is an example of the same phenomenon.

Tucker Carlson, Tonight.

DarwiOdrade: The cult thinks high ratings makes them right.


All of the network news shows -- which we tend to think of as passe and outmoded -- get far higher ratings than Carlson does.  The ABC Evening News often gets nearly triple Carlson's "record" rating.

Carlson is preaching to a small audience who just wants to hear someone who agrees with their racism.  It doesn't convince anyone who doesn't actually believe it.  He's gathering together the audience, but he is not convincing anyone to join him.

Why would someone lie about something insignificant like that?

Better yet, why do you think someone would lie about something as insignificant as that?

We celebrate dysfunction.  We no longer celebrate heroes and people with real skills and accomplishments.

One quick wade through "reality" TV and internet videos will show you that.

The louder and more ignorant you are, the greater the numbers.  Then they look at the numbers and claim they validate the loudness and the ignorance.

I wonder if Swanson advertises on his show.  Being that his mother bailed on him when he was six, and his father ended up marrying a Swanson foods heir.

OK - but they're the only ones who do what they do. I wonder what the cumulative total of viewers was for the rest of media at that time? Among the 5 other networks offering same commentary? You know, the cabal of Fake News?

Its sorta like old Skool black licorice - not everybody likes it, but those who do, like it alot!

OK. That still won't stop the cult from claiming "the number one program in all of cable news among both total viewers and demo" makes Tuck the talking hemorrhoid right, even if it is "for the first time since launch."

CSB Time:

Many years ago some friends and I went to see the Rolling Stones. (I think it was 89, Steel Wheels). We had never heard of the opening act (pre internet days), but the place was PACKED before the opening act. The opening act was Living Colour. They brought the house DOWN. We were gobsmacked.

When they finished a lot of people left the stadium. They were there for the opener and left! (Gobsmacked again!).

This let us creep up a lot closer to the stage for the Stones. (Who also killed it.)

Americans love a good train wreck. That's why traffic slows on the opposite side of the freeway when there is an accident.

A friend of mine loves Tucker. He's stopped watching Hannity cause "he is a hack." I still chuckle when I think about it.

Honestly, I'd be fine with them being stupid and causing a massive pile of bodies, but the reality is these goobers get in their motorhomes and travel up here to tourist towns where I live.

Without travel restrictions, we're vulnerable no matter how much the curve gets flattened.
