They're pinning their hopes on this, as if it'll be  like the Watergate hearings. Only it ain't the early 1970s. There are way more than three TV channels. I'd be surprised if anyone watches.

Okay, the Eeyores are even showing up in headlines.

Time for a mental health break from Fark.

Between the weekly CIVIL WAR threads and other bullshiat like Eeyores, these threads are becoming intolerable, even more so than the old Yahoo ones used to be that were flooded with GQP morons.

Subby's "6 days of prime-time" have already been watered down to 2 (one day for the dogs, one for the ponies).

Much like CNBC, or whatever, probably not a lot.  But it's still important.  And the main thing is that the news sources WILL be watching.  And they will certainly have words to say.

Fark.  Where something happening is cynically regaled to "watered down nothing."

I'd say "don't ever change," but you know you have to.

jfc they've put this shiat on hold for months and now they've got six whole farkign days planned?
 
2022-05-23 2:42:02 PM  
Prime Time? Was that the thing that existed before the age of typing in the thing I wanted to watch and pressing play?

In all seriousness, a lot of older people still watch TV shows on an actual TV on a station with a schedule, and they're probably the ones the hearings are more likely to affect, so there is a point to this. That said, if they're doing this, they had better deliver, or they're just shooting themselves in the foot.

So storming the Capital while both chambers of Congress are in session, literally breaking down barriers and fighting with/beating Capital Police Officers, raid offices, steal and destroy Federal property, and literally shiat in the hallways is *not* a crime?
 
2022-05-23 2:45:17 PM  
You're so negative, subby. Maybe the Earth will explode during the hearings. That would be fun, right?

Fark: Where some dumbassmitter makes up some 'thing' that isn't in the article in the first place, then comes back in to comment on their own submission about how it's even worse than what the submitter (that is totally someone else) mentioned in the headline.

Still not convinced this site only has twenty users and I'm the only one without an alt. Else I am the only user and am simply unaware of my own alts. In that case, why don't my alts give me TF?

Typical Fark... from what I assertained about these 6 hearings, it's basically going to be a scripted 'show trial' where witnessses get to reveal facts on how 'orange man bad'.

Whether DoJ does a damned thing about Fat Nixon is another thing.

Yes. Just like morning, noon and night. Prime time, being 8 to 11 pm, is the time the most people are free to consume media and choose to do so. You're free to stay in your room and play My Little Pony if you want.

I have two theories: one - nothing will happen.  The second is scarier and it leads to a constitutional crisis because we find out a sizeable amount of high level government officials (Supreme Court members, senators, etc) actively tried to commit treason.

Any way we look at this bleak days are ahead.

I know. With everything going on in the country today, I'm sure the American people will look fondly on the dems for putting on a show in primetime over something that happened two years ago and resulted in nothing. Absolutely no way this will blow up in their face.

Really? Because I would be pacifying them with a message of "relax, we've got it under control*" to run out the clock until it's time to apply the lessons learned during the 2021 dress rehearsal to the next election.

So a squabble between two odious rich people gets six weeks of coverage, but a direct assault on the United States' transfer of power merits less than six days.
