    Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and Kamala Devi Harris were sworn in to office as US President and Vice President Wednesday morning, marking then end of now-former US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence's tenure in office. While Biden's inauguration was broadcast across MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN on Wednesday, the three networks and their talking heads took different approaches in their coverage and commentary. Fox News The Fox News Channel took a very comparative and more critical approach to Biden's inauguration than its competitors, highlighting the administration transition from Republican to Democrat control.

    I've tried to find TV viewer ratings for Dementia Joe's 1/14/2021 live speech re: his $1.9 trillion porkulus bill, allegedly for "covid relief." I can't find anything on TV ratings, how many people watched, and I certainly didn't watch. Were the ratings so bad that the Fake News is trying to cover this story up?

    The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is urging film and TV productions in the area to shut down as fears of another coronavirus surge wash over the state. “Although music, TV and film productions are allowed to operate,” the health department said according to Deadline, “we ask you to strongly consider pausing work for a few weeks during this catastrophic surge in Covid cases. Identify and delay higher risk activities, and focus on lower-risk work for now, if at all possible."

    There’s been a huge amount of concern this year about the security implications of technology that originates in China or is owned by Chinese companies. That was, after all, at the heart of the fight by the Trump Administration to ban the popular social networking app TikTok, or at least to force a sale of it. The U.S. government has also cracked down on the manufacturers Huawei and ZTE, and the omnibus/coronavirus rescue package recently passed by Congress even included $1.9 billion to help companies remove equipment from those two companies. Recently, a pair of security researchers raised the alarm...

    Forget lost puppies and horses, adult-like babies, and weird stunts involving snack foods. Instead, this year’s Super Bowl ads will prominently feature social and racial justice issues, along with Covid-19 messages, according to a sports business trade report, The NFL has already embraced such messages, placing “Black Lives Matter” on player helmets and in end zones. Super Bowl LV will be televised by CBS this year and played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. on Feb. 7 if the league schedule is not adjusted by pandemic concerns. “It’s going to be ‘Black Lives Matter,’ it’s going to be COVID....

    This Star Wars property reaches out to us as a familiar friend who wants to talk about more than the times long past. As many have pointed out, the Skywalker story and the galaxy of interconnected characters and legends amounts to the great modern myth of our time. Right now, however, being a Star Wars fan hurts. Marvel will continue to gain on and outpace Star Wars in popularity with younger generations and make more money at the box office (remember those?), but it will never mean what Star Wars does to the Force faithful. That’s why Star Wars fans...

    The NFL canceled the Thanksgiving night game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens after a series of positive COVID-19 tests. The postponement of the game, which will now be played on Sunday, was announced Wednesday afternoon. The decision, according to ESPN, came after seven different Ravens players tested positive for the coronavirus in the past three days: running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins, quarterback Trace McSorley, center Matt Skura, guard Patrick Mekari, defensive end Calais Campbell, and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee. None of them will be eligible to play in Sunday's game. "This decision was made out of...

    The 2020 American Music Awards delivered a big decline in rating and total viewership from last year, falling to record lows in both measurements. Last night’s awards show, which was hosted by “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson and saw Taylor Swift, The Weeknd and Dan + Shay emerge as the big winners, averaged a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 and around 3.8 million total viewers. That represents a 50% rating decline and a 43% loss in total viewership. For comparison, last years AMAs were down only 4% on the year prior in the ratings column, and in fact gained around...

    TV shows including This Is Us, Law & Order: SVU, and Chicago PD have started their new seasons with social justice-themed storylines touting systemic racism and portray law enforcement in a negative light. Writers are working hard to keep race top of mind after left-wing activists pressured networks to change the way they portray black people and the police. In NBC’s This Is Us premiere, the Black Lives Matter movement provokes an emotional epiphany in Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown), inspiring him to cut ties with his white therapist and confront his white family members about their silence on race....

    In a year devoid of blockbuster movies in theaters, Disney has sought to rival Netflix as the leader in on-demand streaming, but questions remain about its approach.

 Bob Chapek, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, will later today deliver to investors the entertainment giant’s annual report. Even worse than the rest of Hollywood, Disney has been hit hard by the pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. Most theme parks remain shuttered, tens of thousands of employees have been laid off, and revenue from theatrical film releases has gone from billions in 2019 to nearly zero this year. It’s no accident that today...

    Intolerant social media hall monitors are trying to enforce groupthink. ======================================================================= On Star Wars-based TV series The Mandalorian, actress Gina Carano portrays Cara Dune, a former shock trooper. And it seems that she is very comfortable “playing” a similar role on social media, where she continues to stand her ground against outrage mobs who keep going up against her in a bid to get her fired and “canceled.” And it’s not just about something Carano posted herself – now her dogged detractors are going through her Twitter likes to prove their point against the actress. The need not only to...

I am definitely NOT saying this is Biblical at all. So please, no one infer I'm suggesting that. But I DO think perhaps the writers had a little inspiration from there. Again, this is NOT Biblical. So consider this just entertainment - science fiction.

    OK, a vanity post here - With Fox having completely gone to the dark side, and not wanting to spend any money to support any of the mainstream media any more, I'm looking for a streaming service that can replace my cable. I'm looking to have local channels (which I can do with an antenna if necessary), some sports, alternative news, older movies, older shows, maybe some history.
