When your God-King has no flaws, any suggestion the God-King is flawed is heresy.

Even if said God-King needs help standing up after using the toilet.

Conversation with my mom when the first hearing was announced went something like this:

Me: "The first hearing on January 6th will be next week."
Mom: "It's all BS"
Me: "I'll be watching, it's probably going to show some pretty wild things we didn't know about, if even half of what I've been reading is true."
Mom: "Well, there's one who will watch I guess. It's all BS."

She stated her position and intent clearly.

Willful ignorance is like narcissism and sociopathy.  They're in ROM and cannot be reprogrammed.

oh we're well past that.

I think we got there when Trump lost over 60 claims of election fraud, and the reason was that the Democrats and Big Tech were conspiring with the Judicial Branch of the government to prevent Trump's lawyer from presenting the evidence.

Wait until they find out that outlets like Newsmax and the Washington Examiner are tiring of their shiat, too.

Newsmax host basically told Rudy that he was a wuss. "That didn't look that bad"

And then we have the post about the Examiner calling out Trump.

No, it's not perfect. The Newsmax guy still let Rudy duck out of it, but it's starting to crumble.

I still like when Jordan Klepper was showing them hearings and they were shocked and called Ivanka a clone or a deep fake. Some of them looked like their brains broke and had to reboot.

I'm sure "It's all hearsay" will be her reaction the next time I bring this up.

I lost my mom at a too-young age that was a trauma I'll never get over, but having her go mad and become a dangerous zombie fried by far-right propaganda would be worse. It's bad enough that I lost my brother to extremist religion when he married an Evangelical.

The rest of those show numbers are pathetic. Shows a marked result of a decade or more of cord-cutting. I remember 60 Minutes would get up into the dozens of millions of viewers.

Actually, can't really blame the networks trying to get in on the streaming action, instead of letting Netflix and Amazon have all the fun.

Im surprised it's not more since America has plenty of scared, old white people. That's probably 90% of their daytime audience. The other 10% are the unemployed/unemployable who are convinced that furriners are the reason their lives suck.

The infuriating thing is that Murdoch could have killed this thing at such an early stage, aborted if you will, that barely anyone would have been affected.

If this is the same article I read today, then those numbers were from last week.

I don't know if the blowback from yesterday has registered in data points yet, but Fox News had it on the front page of their website for the whole testimony. Later, some of their anchors were openly questioning if they thought his actions were not only wrong, but qualified as sedition.

Sounds like mommy Fox and daddy Donny are getting the ol' D-I-V-O-R-C-E

That's been their entire existence for like, 40 years at least. Ignoring anything that makes Glorious Leader (be that Reagan, either Bush or Trump) look bad is pretty standard conservative behavior.

My mom was in her 80s and started watching Faux and then getting angry and hostile towards everyone.  She was living with my sister at the time, so my sister just programmed Fox out of the channel menu.  Mom could never figure it out and started to calm down again. Back to the Matlock/Murder She Wrote channel.

Oh, yeah; real-time viewing is negligible these days, and has been for a few years. That's why they try to push Live-Plus 3 and Live Plus-7 ratings data and, as you mentioned, networks and channels are all trying to establish their own (or partnered) streaming platforms now.
