Before the mistake became president, It's A Wonderful Life would be on television several times in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Several different channels would run it a few times; and, if you wanted, you could watch it a few times before Christmas.
Now, if you even hear that it's going to air, you better watch it that time; because, if you don't, you won't get to see it at all. And they show it on a Saturday night, when fewer people are watching at all.
Makes me think there is some message in there, that they don't want anybody to see. And I haven't seen my favorite, The Bells of St. Mary's, in about five years.
