Are the shows worth anything? I’d say no. But the networks and cables have dead air to fill…so they fill it with dead air.
They would not know live air if it knocked them over and declared a paid bonus.
As long as they can charge for the advertising… it will limp on. And the networks and the whole of media know they scored big $$$$$ with the SCOTUS ruling on political speech. It hardly matters, looking over 2008 election, to say nothing of 40 years of elections prior, public financed elections were always a vaporous pipe dream.
We have hit bottom when Ivanka Trump and her molded cheeks (all 4 I would suspect) is on … think it was ABC’s GMA with Robin Roberts and Steph (despicable pair of handmaidens, send them to a diary farm for re-education!)… and she doles out POLITICAL COMMENTARY — along with Mort Zuckerman.
One would think Mort, at least, would have something better to do. But no.
We’re sucking down dirt.
