TV News Shakes Up Schedules to Cover Jan. 6 Committee Report on Capitol Attack
"It’s easy to think of the whole thing as a potboiler drama, something that might entertain as easily as an hour of “Law & Order.” But there’s so much more at stake, says Costa, who hopes viewers will give the proceedings more attention than they might normally during a weeknight. “This is deadly serious. This is American democracy. This story deserves more attention. It’s a primetime story, but it’s not a one-and-done special movie. This is real life. This is democracy under the microscope.”
Expectations are running high, he says. “I have been walking around the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate all Monday, talking to lawmakers in both chambers and asking them, ‘What does this all mean? What are we going to learn?'” he says. “Lawmakers are telling me in both parties that they are on edge about what the Committee has found.” He interviewed Rep. Liz Cheney, the Republican who is a member of the House Committee, for “CBS Sunday Morning” and says “she is confident that they have found material and evidence that paints the picture, and I’ll be watching to see what happens.'”
pb is going to chime in on this beforehand hand, from the perspective of someone on the side that believes that widespread vote fraud by the left to elect the Doddering Old Fool is a proven fact.
Our truth is that the Dems cheated. But very few care any longer about what happened between election day and the inauguration.
Considering how widely the Jan 6th show will be aired, pb doubts that many will watch...
...and almost no one will be won over.
You Blue MAGAs here are already convinced. pb's been saying that there's nuthin new here. His opinion is set.
Our minds are made up.
As far as anyone else? What matters is shrinkflation, empty shelves, record high gas prices, moms and dads grammies and pap paps panicking over feeding babies and fear of rising crime.
Me, I'll be mad that my LAW AND ORDER rerun will be pre-empted.
But, if you Blue MAGA Swampcult progressives think that people are going to be outraged and stream to the polls to vote for Dems,...
...get over it.
