My local fox network is playing "The King's Speech" (the movie!)

And NOT airing any of the RNC.


(If you havent seen the movie, it's superb and the timing is great)


Edit to clarify: the movie is a about King George and how he copes with a substantial stutter. Sheer brilliance.

who overcomes a speech impediment to ascend to the throne, much like Joe Biden in 2020.

They see the polling. I think they believed it was more of a risk to air it than not.

Omission is a powerful form of censorship.
