So we're coming up on 1 am Monday

there are three 24 hour news channels, but MSNBC and CNN are doing jail and crime stories shot in the past. Do you know who is still current and giving coverage to advance their political goals? Do you wonder why we lose on messaging?

1. I'm not sure that demanding our own shills is the answer.

4. I'm not asking for shills

I truly believe that even outside of prime time the news (also known as "truth" should be reported. Why is only the democratic weekend based on reruns and reality shows while Fox brings in multi nationalists fascists?

2. The United States has no true TV news anymore.

Mostly tabloid garbage or opinion-based dreck.

I have to go out of the country for fact-based news reporting. Pretty sad fact.

3. It's up to US to send out messages;

at this hour, they're filling in time.

Just watched The Post.

5. I don't understand why they aren't using these for

specials like the Ukraine report Ari did awhile back. Use the time to educate the public.

6. I know the Fox folks are covering special forces guys

including nut jobs to normalize "special operators" like they are normal US vets and they do not come close. It's fun and games to target enemies with these people-but they don't even come close to reflecting normal US troops

7. I wake up early every day and go straight to DU.

I can't read all of the morning news paper on line, so I come here so I won't miss any new big stories. Sunday and Monday mornings are the best times to log in.

8. Sometimes THIS whole political thing needs a rest.

Jail and crime stories ain't the solution either. Welcome to the asylum.

9. I would avoid the Infotainment Cable Noise

I am sure that C-Span will cover the hearings when they start.

10. i hate the news on weekends..lots of warmed up left overs except for you know who....

..but because of nothing to watch I caught the end of the Sounders-Toronto MLS game! Ive never cheered for a soccer team before but wow I think I'm liking the Seattle Sounders a lot! And...in Seattle fashion... seismologists recorded movement when the nearly 70,000 crowd cheered them as well!
