4. Most of the nation doesn't watch cable news in the middle of the day, either

If people want to see it, there are several ways they can.

20. I did watch it on my tablet, but there is no escaping the fact that these historic hearings

were deemed less newsworthy than other "breaking news". It was the networks' contribution to the normalization of Trump sleaze and the dumbing down of political discourse.

21. You may think this hearing is "historic" but everyone doesn't feel that way - even some people on DU

claimed it was a useless waste of time.

You may not like the network's editorial choice, but not showing this one hearing live in the middle of the day is hardly proof of the "networks' normalization of Trump and the dumbing down of political discourse."

Frankly, it just seems that some people simply want to complain, no matter what.

23. True - and then there are those of us who prefer not to overreact to every

little thing because we understand that everything isn't a conspiracy or plot. Sometimes sh#t just happens and there's nothing more to it than that.

12. I found it and changed the channel. I just needed a shout out to remind me that it was on.

I am packing to move and that is the perfect thing to listen to that will piss me off enough to pack faster. Thank you MM.

19. Yea, it's not fun. But it gets a purge going.

I was right too. Listening to the GOP NOT looking for facts, has me working really fast. The good news is I have the windows open and the TV blaring so if my neighbors aren't listening to it on theirs, they are listening to it on mine.

8. Simple 99% heard Barr say there was no colusion

and no evidence of obstruction. It's all about ratings, there is no audiance for it. Once Barr intercepted the Mueller report it was killed.

10. That really ticks me off

DirecTV only has C-SPAN 1 and 2... not three.
TBH, untill reading this thread I didn't know a #3 existed.

It might be streamed online somewhere but my satellite bandwidth is limited.
What a crappy thing to do... pull the rug out from under those of us who were watching it.

But my DirecTV rollover date Wednesday and the Internet has been superslow for a few days already, with pages taking up to 60 seconds to load.

27. Because it isn't an investigation?

At least not today.

There's no witness who was involved... no investigator to testify... no administration official to interrogate.

It simply isn't newsworthy of live coverage.

They'll produce a couple of soundbites that allow the networks to put the word "Watergate" and "Impeachment" into the script and that will get them some of the ratings that they want.
