Those blockbuster Jan. 6 “hearings?” are getting such low ratings, NBC decided to dump them and air golf instead. (Hey, it is the U.S. Open.)
Just before 3 p.m. on Thursday, NBC anchor Lestor Holt announced that the network would not be airing coverage of the show trial on its main network, but would instead be moving it to Peacock, its streaming service, in favor of golf's U.S. Open.
Americans are so interested in Pelosi's illegitimate January 6 hearing that NBC just cut away to golf pic.twitter.com/KVqbvQWrlr— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) June 16, 2022
If that doesn’t tell you anything about how little the American people actually care about this political charade, I don’t know what will.
Lefties screamed bloody murder over the program change, with many saying it was a sign that NBC was showing its true political colors and ignoring it’s responsibility to democracy.
So NBC has stupidly decided to put on a golf tournament in place of the most important & vital government hearings since Watergate??? A huge mistake. I see where your own political leanings are. Ridiculous!! #January6thCommitteeHearings— Jose Correa (@__JoseCorrea__) June 16, 2022
@NBCNews ended it’s coverage of the January 6th hearings to cover a golf tournament! Is it any wonder that our democracy is hanging by a thread? We prioritize pass time activities over the essential work of protecting the democracy that gives us the freedom to have pass times.— Diann Rust-Tierney (@diannrt5) June 16, 2022
Apparently NBC thinks golf is more important than watching the second hour of the January 6th committee hearings!!! NBC seems to not care about democracy, and these historic, revealing and very meaningful hearings that are attempting to save our country!!!— Michael Byrd 🇺🇦🇺🇲🇺🇦 (@byrdm35) June 16, 2022
The fact that these people have this much displeasure over a sham of a trial says a lot about what they value, and it’s quite sad. All you can say is "Fore!"
A tourist interrupted a press conference to ask why he has to travel 2,000 miles to hear news that the leftist media refuse to cover. pic.twitter.com/Eq4jjXb27F— MRCTV (@mrctv) June 17, 2022
