    Public Open Impeachment Hearings To Start Wednesday

    https://thehill.com/homenews/media/4...ming-for-trump

    ...
    ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS on Wednesday will preempt their regularly scheduled programming for live coverage of the House Intelligence Committee's open impeachment hearings of President Trump.
    As expected, all of the major cable news networks, including Fox News, MSNBC, CNN and CSPAN will also offer live coverage.

    William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat to Ukraine, on Wednesday is slated to be the first to publicly testify regarding possible efforts by Trump administration officials to link U.S. military aid to Ukraine in exchange for investigating former Vice President Joe Biden, a top Democratic presidential candidate, and his son Hunter Biden for business dealings in the country.
    Taylor's testimony will be followed by Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent.

    It looks like this is going to take over the airwaves nationwide. It is going to be a public spectacle par excellence. It will be hard to escape it. The media seems to want to wallow in this big time.

    Little chance that its total audience market share or total viewership will approach the numbers put up during the Nixon hearings. There are too many other entertainment options vying for attention.

    There will be much bitching and griping as people's favorite programs are pre-empted. Of course there is always the prospect that people publicly testifying may occasionally show a genius for playing to the cameras.

    I can't wait for the testimony provided post Democrat questioning and the dumb face stairs after the Republican bloviating.

    Republican: ...and this sham must end now!
    Witness: Uh... am I supposed to say something now?

    The only people to be inconvenienced here are boomers.

    I don't know anyone under the age of 40 who actually watches broadcast television anymore. It's all about that streaming, and nothing is preempting that...

    So the only people this impacts are exactly the geriatric dipshits that got us here in the first place.

    Soncry me a river if Mom and Dad have their Diagnosis Murder or whatever the fuck is on actual television these days interrupted while they get forced to watch the Corruption Olympics. They've been long overdue for the wakeuup call everyone that everyone who knows a website that isn't Facebook has been aware of since Dondolf Twitler decided to run for office: that he's a fucking criminal.

    Indeed. I haven't watched TV networks in over a decade now. I would not have even noticed this if not for this thread.

    There are a few network TV shows we watch. Not many, but a couple.

    However, Disney+ launched today, with 30 seasons of Simpsons available. Might not see the regular news for a few months.

    I haven't been able to stomach the Simpsons since season 9 or so when it became zombie Simpsons. Was such an amazing show back in the day though.
