Wall to Wall coverage of the UK -- little for Biden

and Democracy.

It says everything about the RW owned media that the very stations that didnít cover the Presidents address a week ago are stopping in their tracks for the UK.

This isnít about the Queen or whether I ďlikeĒ the UK (I do) itís about the media.

Fuck the RW owned media. 🖕🏾

1. You have to give it to england and their rich history and pomp and circumstance

I bet most viewers are enjoying the break from constant politics.

2. I just read that there will be a 10-day mourning period in Britain

I certainly hope our own MSM doesn't follow suit bc I'm already tired of the continuous loop coverage.

9. Ugh!



I get the interest in many quarters but this saturation coverage is ridiculous. Sounds as if I'll be disconnecting the TV.

3. It's a historic moment in world history

Although TV has become saturated, there is some good news - reading yet exists.

People are feeling a smidgen of what I feel not wanting to hear people not very expert drone on and on about Trump for hours on the daily with little new to say and bereft of any insight.

The Queen gets one day, and cable news addicts are ready to burn it all down.

I'm amused.

missing which affects our country and democracy.

13. People who have cable have internet

Seriously, cable news is a vanishingly small audience.

The only people being deprived right now are that tiny fraction of the population who watch cable news all day everyday.

I'm sorry if they're affected, but my sympathy is low. Sometimes being forced to go cold turkey can be a good thing. I say those most affected should embrace the opportunity!

15. Anyone complaining here on this site does have access.

So thereís that.

Anyone with a library in their town can access the internet.

The coverage of the Queens death will continue unless something takes it off the news. Best find yourself something else to watch?

25. With today's news media, those contents are missing anyway

Thereís no either or. Itís not like if they donít cover the queen then theyíll go over to some fair coverage of Biden. Like those people saying we should take the money we send to Ukraine and pay for blah blah blah with it, or whatever. Itís not the way it works.

7. "Why isn't the media covering what *I* think is important?"

I was guessing it would take at least 48 hours for the first rant to appear.

12. Biden is in Columbus OH today

At the official groundbreaking of the Intel chip plant. Itís a BFD !

I donít watch TV news during the day but I wonder if thereís any coverage of this at all.

Iíd rather not listen to puke DeWine who Iím sure is there to offer his blather for the cameras

Maybe let UK have their moment and Biden will get back to getting on with it next week.
