Cable News Viewership

I didn’t realize how little viewership cable news channels got. It’s such a small fraction of our society. Where do the majority of people get their news of oh Lord, do they not get it at all?: FNC: 2.24 million viewers (up 11 percent); 453,000 adults 25-54 (up 23 percent) MSNBC: 1.69 million viewers (up […]

* This is an actual headline and story from the Associated Press: #Unbelievable: “Lindsay Lohan says Americans need to come together in support of President Donald Trump.” * Then why all the salacious and hysterical headlines? The media trying to gain readers and profits. The bottom line.: “Tom Winter: NBC’s Pete Williams reports (as we all […]

A failed, collapsed party cannot form an effective resistance.

One can spend all of one’s time and energy denouncing Donald Trump. But until the systemic causes that gave rise to him are addressed and resolved, those denunciations will do little other than generate social media benefits and flattering applause from those already devoted to opposing him. Focusing on and attempting to counter the fundamental […]
