I Have To Shut My Cable News Programs Off And Watch Something Else....

The cable news shows are getting nauseating. They keep going over the same stuff - program after program. The talking heads keep saying the same stuff - program after program. How many times do we have to hear this. Kornacki is just annoying. Analyzing and re-analyzing. As far as I'm concerned - the polls they are touting mean nothing this close to the election. The political ads for candidates are driving me crazy. I can't believe that they ever influence anyone given what we know about how they put them together and spin.

Boy - I'll be glad when this election is over. Only 4 more days. GOTV!!!!!!!
Make this election historical. The highest turnout of any election ever before in the U.S. GOTV!!!!!!

1. I recommend not watching any cable news until after the election

 

They all suck. Yes, Rachel and Lawrence are exceptions but Republicans are so Nazified it makes it impossible to watch.

2. I'm enjoying 'Double Indemnity' on TCM

TCM and the Retro channel are my sanity savers.

3. Totally agree.

Audible has been my friend since 2016. Have been entertained and educated by large number of books I listen to while working. TV just gives me a headache and nausea.

6. Try the live stream at CBS News

 

I find it excellent when Im not in the mood for all the arguing.

https://www.cbsnews.com/

I think its a web only service though - not sure if their phone app has this live content.

7. I'm with you....

 

I'm hearing more about Trump's caravan bullshit than anything else. Even if the host thinks it's bullshit, this plays into Trump's hand.
