Just saw the synopsys of tonights "World News Tonight"

All I needed to know was in the (approx 20 second) synopsis.

How many hours (multiplied by all cable news outlets) of FREE CAMPAIGN FOOTAGE did Donald Trump receive?

I know it is historic. But other than the bald facts, what do you really need to know about it?

He showed up. He filed Not Guilty on All Charges. (we knew he would)

Did we really need to see (from 6 am on the West Coast) wall to wall coverage of that?

I didn't have the TV on all day, but just went upstairs and mom was watching David Muir on World News. I actually stopped to listen (it took 20 seconds to cover the relevant information)

I'll give a pass because of the historical relevance of the Day. But it seems that the media was hysterical.

What a crazy world we live in.

I want to see a lot more documenting of what the Biden-Harris administration has accomplished, including efforts to increase manufacturing, tackle climate change, support NATO, rebuild crumbling infrastructure, etc.

I didn't watch anything, saw the headlines that was enough.I wasn't about to sit there for hours while they followed his car and gave a running commentary. I accomplished more by cleaning my house and playing with my critters.
