Glenn Beck and the Long TV Game
A combination of trains, planes, automobiles and the fact that the sinister cabal that runs PJMedia has been updating the website to include subliminal suggestions designed to turn all readers into freedom-loving patriots has made it virtually impossible for me to blog this week. Even now, I'm writing in a hurry, so forgive me if I sound rushed. Tomorrow, I should have time to make some incredibly fascinating remarks about the film Safe House — incredibly fascinating to me at least! I'll let you judge for yourself.
Meanwhile, consider two interesting TV stories out this week. One from Gallup via Breitbart's Big Journalism on a poll showing Americans have lost confidence in TV News and are tuning out. This — no matter what anyone says — is because the vast majority of TV news distorts the facts to support statism and undermine American-style liberty. Why watch disinformation unless you happen to love having your leftist prejudices confirmed?
The other story, from page one of today's Wall Street Journal (behind a paywall), is on a dust-up over the cost of cable TV now that Netflix, Amazon and Google are providing some relatively cheap video streaming.
Put these two stories together and what we learn is: the more TV options there are, the more viewers turn their backs on left wing liars. Huzzah.
