Cable news viewership:

Aug 31, 2021

In the 25-54 demo, Fox News averaged 394,000 viewers, down 38%, compared to CNN with 191,000, down 58%, and MSNBC with 163,000, down 55%. In total day, Fox News averaged 1.42 million, down 20%, compared to MSNBC with 732,000, down 41%, and CNN with 621,000, down 39%.


I think with Dems mostly running things, lefty voters are taking a break and watching less news in general so it makes sense that the more left-leaning channels are losing viewership.

Explaining the need for a national vaccination mandate to 2nd Amendment extremists

and other patri-idiotics

"Present arms!"

Explaining the need for a national vaccination mandate to 2nd Amendment extremists and other patri-idiotics.

Before I get to that, let's not forget that 99.99 percent of we Americans have had our polio and small pox shots in the arms, and our kids have to receive more than a dozen immunizations before they can even step inside a school room. These successful national vaccination mandates are never mentioned by Fox News hosts and the conservative media.

The Reality: we are under siege . . . by a virus. The COVID virus makes it's way mostly unseen through cities, schools, factories, retail businesses, restaurants, homes and anywhere people gather. Those of us who have been "armed" with a vaccination are afforded some protection that the unvaccinated are not. However, the unvaccinated make life far more dangerous for everyone because the unvaccinated are unarmed against this invading virus. Being unarmed against this invader allows for COVID to spread out through homes, schools, sports teams and businesses rapidly. Once established in a populated area this viral invader camouflages itself as new variants to infect and potentially kill its victims while the unarmed and unvaccinated stand by and say "I'll never be attacked" or "the numbers are faked, doctors get paid more if they say victims were killed by COVID" or "Fox And Friends hosts know more about viruses than Ouchie Fauci" or "a friend of a friend of a friend got vaccinated and died!".

A Story for us all: Imagine an invading force of people with rifles and other firearms making their way through schools, factories, homes and businesses whose only goal is to kill us. The President of the United States takes a bold step and mandates that all citizens over twelve years old take up firearms to fight back against this invading force, but half of the population says, "No, we will NOT take up firearms to fight off this invading force who wants to kill us!" These unarmed (unvaccinated) citizens are a danger to everyone. The invading force wounds or kills them, then slips by with ease to kill other unarmed citizens, filling the hospitals with so many wounded, sick and dying citizens that there are no beds for cancer patients, accident victims, new mothers or others in need of emergency services not caused by the invading force. The unarmed (unvaccinated) are allowing the invading force to gain control of vast regions of 'pro-freedom / anti-mandate' counties and states, and crippling their economies. Job losses and production of goods comes to a halt in many sectors. More people are killed than during the entire Civil War. Those who are armed (vaccinated) and fighting off the invading force then blame the unarmed (unvaccinated) for the damage and death caused by them for not fighting back. Protests against the national mandate ensue. This causes an unnecessary culture war between the armed and unarmed, vaccinated and unvaccinated, masked and unmasked. This continuing culture war delays and hinders our collective need to fight against the invading force (ie: COVID) to this day.
