AOC Shunned By NY Dem Politicians, Gets Booted Off Progressive WFP Ballotby Shifra on May 15, 2020
Looks like 13 is not a lucky number for ‘Sandy’ Ocasio-Cortez; ‘thirteen’ is the total number of signatures she got from members of the progressive group Working Families Party, and she needed fifteen signatures to get on the ballot. But thirteen may be lucky for NYC; this makes it easier for her primary challenger to become the Democrat nominee for her district in November. Bye bye AOC? Meanwhile, poor Sandy is being shunned by her fellow NY Democrats, who do not want to work with her. As POTUS would say: SAD! 🙂 Via NY Post. New York’s elected officials are avoiding spotlight-loving firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez like, well, the plague, opting to craft their coronavirus response efforts without the lefty...
‘Snitchers’ On COVID-19 Violations Discover Their Complaints Are Onlineby Shifra on May 11, 2020
Snitching on the snitchers? Well, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander…or something. Having local governments encourage citizens to snitch on each other is outrageously un-American. But looking on the bright side, at least we all now know what Stasi means. Via Reason. Hundreds of St. Louis citizens who snitched to the government about businesses that defied closure orders are discovering that their messages are not confidential and their identities are subject to sunshine laws. As part of the effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus, some city and state leaders have forced businesses they deem “nonessential” to shut down. St. Louis County encouraged people to report any such businesses that are still open via an...
Backfire? AOC’s Efforts to Oust Incumbent Dems May Cause Elimination of Her House Seatby Shifra on February 24, 2020
If incumbent Dems who will control redistricting after the 2020 Census succeed in eliminating Ocasio-Cortez’s seat, Sandy may find out what irony really means… Via BPR. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement of a group of all-female progressive candidates could mean an end to her own congressional stint in office. The freshman New York lawmaker and self-described democratic socialist “may not last in Congress,” according to a New York Post editorial which warned that Ocasio-Cortez’s new political action committee supporting candidates challenging Democratic incumbents could spell her own demise. “Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats,” the editorial, published Sunday, stated....
Flashback: Joe Biden Calls Group Who Display Confederate Flag ‘Fine People’by Shifra on December 9, 2019
Remember the vicious lie perpetrated by Biden and the MSM, that President Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people” ? Here’s Biden calling a group of Confederate flag-wavers…fine people. Oops… Via Daily Wire. Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden praised a pro-confederacy group “who continue to display the Confederate flag” as “fine people” in newly resurfaced video highlighted by the Trump campaign. The video is significant in large part due to the number of times that Biden has engaged in smearing President Donald Trump with the patently false claim that the president said white supremacists and neo-Nazis were “very fine people” in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy in 2017. The video of Biden, from 1993, happened...

CNN is planning to cut up to 300 jobs, “many being older employees with years at the network,” according to a report on Monday. According to FTVLive, a website that monitors the television industry, “Word is that just under 200 people will be pink slipped and just over 100 will be offered a buyout.” Staffers are reportedly calling the cuts a “massive brain drain” because so many veteran employees are being given pink slips…. Aidan McLaughlin, an editor for Mediaite, tweeted that, according to a CNN source, the cable network is not making...

Among prime time cable news shows, Fox News’ Hannity led with a total audience of 3.086 million, followed by FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tonight (2.834 million) and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (2.630 million).

CNN Ratings Fall To 15th Place, Lose to ‘Food Network’by Shifra on April 12, 2019
Looks like people are catching on that CNN was “feeding” everyone a load of garbage for two years with their Russia-Collusion-Hoax. SAD! 🙂 Via Breitbart. CNN, the chief co-conspirators behind the Russia Collusion Hoax, has fallen to 15th place in primetime with fewer than 750,000 average viewers. Throughout all of cable TV, during the week of April 1, Fox News grabbed the most primetime viewers with 2.3 million, MSNBC came in second with 1.6 million, and way below them, way below number one and number two, way below HGTV, the Food Network, Investigative Discovery, and the Hallmark Channel, sits the far-left CNN in 15th place, with only 745,000 primetime viewers.

Poll: 0% Democrats Want Michael Avenatti To Run In 2020by Shifra on November 14, 2018
The poll was conducted with 773 Democrats, and Creepy Porn Lawyer would have had to get only 7 votes to hit 1%. Ouch. That’s definitely going to leave a mark. Via Breitbart. Left-wing attorney Michael Avenatti is the choice of zero Democrats as their 2020 presidential nominee, according to a Morning Consult poll. While “other” earned three percent in this poll of 733 registered Democrats, and some guy named Steve Bullock grabbed one percent, in a field of 20 names, the cable news star and lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels came in dead least at number 20. What’s more, nearly a quarter of Democrats, some 21 percent, said “Don’t Know/No Opinion” over Avenatti…. The poll’s big winners were two...
“The Conners” Beaten By Everything, Drops in Total Viewers and Demoby Tammy on November 1, 2018
Looks like the end is nigh. Via Showbiz 911. “The Conners” dropped in everything last night–total viewers, key demo. In the nightly ratings battle. the “Roseanne” spin off continues to trend downward. Last night, “The Conners” was beaten by everything- “NCIS,” “The Voice,” etc. This was their first really objective run, no World Series, nothing to distract potential viewers. But the key demo sank, which isn’t a good sign. And the total viewers were down by 180K, which is a lot, frankly. People are leaving and they’re not coming back. ABC has ordered 1 extra episode to the original order of 10. Sounds to me like a finale. Someone wakes up and says they dreamt Roseanne died. There’s a cackle...
Roseanne-less ‘The Conners’ Loses 25 Percent Of Viewers From Series Premiereby Tammy on October 24, 2018
As expected, 1 out of 4 viewers were simply curious and the nature of what they were doing didn’t hold the viewers. I would expect this decline to continue as the novelty wears off. Via Fox News. The second episode of ABC’s “The Conners” – which is the Roseanne Barr-less spinoff of “Roseanne” – lost roughly 25 percent of viewers who tuned in to last week’s premiere, according to TheWrap. “The Conners” picked up a 1.7 rating and 7.9 million viewers, compared to the debut’s 2.3 rating and 10.5 million viewers, according to the Hollywood trade publication which cited fast-national Nielsen statistics. Industry insiders speculated that many of the premiere’s viewers simply tuned in to see how Barr’s pro-Trump character...
Kavanaugh Confirmation Week Ratings: CNN Loses… To ‘Home and Garden TV’by Shifra on October 14, 2018
SAD! 🙂 Via Daily Caller. Fox News maintained its position as “King of Cable” last week during the dramatic confirmation hearings and subsequent vote for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Fox crushed rivals CNN and MSNBC in all demographics. Nielsen Media Research reports that, from October 1 through October 7, Fox News more than doubled the viewership of CNN and MSNBC in total viewers for both primetime and total daily viewers…. Even with the booming ratings from the drama around the Kavanaugh vote, CNN was unable to crack into the top 5 for cable networks. CNN was beat by Home And Garden TV in total viewers and just barely bested The Hallmark Channel.
Omarosa’s Book Bombs ‘Bigly,’ Sales Drop 40%by Shifra on September 2, 2018
When the title of Omarosa’s book, ‘Unhinged,’ was announced, I thought she had written an autobiography. Now, it’s tanking. Karma! Via NY Post. Omarosa Manigault Newman could probably use a few tweets from President Trump right about now. The former reality star-turned-White House senior adviser has reportedly seen a dramatic dip in book sales since her Aug. 14 release of “Unhinged,” which recounts her brief time as a staffer. According to the Washington Post, hardcover sales dropped by more than 40 percent after the first week — when she managed to sell 34,000 copies following a Trump Twitter tirade….
CNN Ratings Fall To 7th Place, Lose to ‘Ancient Aliens’by Shifra on August 15, 2018
History Channel’s ‘Ancient Aliens’ has been criticized for presenting “pseudoscience” and “pseudohistory.” Which apparently is more popular than CNN’s pseudonews. Via Breitbart.
