"The Rise of Terrorism" on my local Sinclair station

Oy vey.

Just turned over to Saturday 6 p.m. newscast and caught the tail end of some bullshit program called "The Rise of Terrorism." Oh the D-R-A-M-A!!!! It looked like fear mongering at its worst.

I still watch the local news on this ABC affiliate. As far as I can tell, the Sinclair crap hasn't seeped into the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts. They must air all that Sinclair "required" content at 4 a.m. in the morning or something. This local channel appears to use more ABC national segments than anything that sniffs of Sinclair.

And what's up with that flag waving graphic for everything? Is that meant to imply that other channels are not as patriotic?

These people are so transparent. Yuck!

Ivanka shilling "tax overhaul"

Watching the regional 4 p.m. news and the lead story was Ivanka being in Greenville, SC to push how wonderful the tax scam was.

I SERIOUSLY cannot stand that woman talking. Everything about her annoys me to the core. The pretense and affect are stifling!

Anyway, looks like she is out on tour trying to talk this up and paint a rosy picture for women. All the Republican lackeys were there of course. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) praised Ivanka for her 'strong, powerful backbone.' UGH. Nothing but an invite-only pep rally to the faithful. I guess no one wanted her in Davos, so we were burdened with her presence.

Here's an article from Greenville News:

Anthem at today's Presidents Cup presentation

I mentioned this in a post in another thread, but do you think they'll play the anthem after Trump presents the cup to the Americans?

Lord help us. Wrapped in flags and hands on hearts as one big "F YOU." I don't think the International Team is going to win.

Could be.

Think about it. It's a long holiday weekend where people have their attention elsewhere and newsrooms have light staffing. If Trump is going to rip the Band-Aid, it would be a strategic time to do so. It would be Wednesday before people came out of their holiday fog.
