Perhaps they can get a member of QAnon to host.

8. This will swing no new voters his way. Sinclair attracts people already voting for him.

It's a waste of time but totally in line with his thinking over last four years. Give red meat to base while getting his fix of adoration.

Enlarging the base? Huh? What does that mean?

Brilliant.:sarcasm"

2. And how many local stations will this be played on that won't give equal time to Biden?

Doesn't this violate some kind of campaign law?

3. Biden should just hold a competing event

On a major network. It would dwarf whatever Sinclair can put out on CW.

10. Yes! He will have more viewers than 45

The same thing that happened with the double town halls. It will really upset 45.

And yes, it would cut into Sinclair numbers. If they're the only show, more folks might tune in, just to see the circus; but if Biden was on, more would be watching him.

5. Good idea, moron. Preach to you extreme, right wing choir.

That should swing a lot of new voters your way.

9. Bolling, the far right guy Fox got rid of because of sexual harassment allegations?

Sure, he is Trump's base.

On August 4, 2017, HuffPost reported that several years before and on separate occasions, Bolling allegedly sent unsolicited lewd text messages and lewd photos to three female colleagues at Fox News or Fox Business Network.[22] He is also accused of making "wildly inappropriate" comments to female employees.[23] After the article was published, Caroline Heldman, a former Fox News guest, alleged that Bolling made numerous unwanted sexual advances towards her.[24]

Bolling denied the allegations against him.[24] The day after the article was published, Bolling was suspended from Fox News pending an investigation, which the network commissioned the law firm Paul, Weiss to conduct.[25][26][27] A few days after the article was published, Bolling filed a summons[28] and "notice of an intent to file a defamation lawsuit" in New York state court for $50 million against freelance writer Yashar Ali, who wrote the story for HuffPo.[29][30] Bolling's summons did not specify the statements he contended were defamatory,[31] and he did not bring an actual complaint against Ali.[32] Ali and HuffPo stood by the accuracy of the article;[28][33] Ali's lawyer, in a letter to Bolling's lawyer, wrote that any lawsuit would be frivolous because Bolling is a public figure, because "Mr. Ali conducted a thorough investigation and verified his information with 14 independent sources," and because "truth is always a defense to defamation."[31]

On September 8, 2017, Bolling was ousted from Fox News.[25][34][35] In a statement, the network said that "Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably." As a result of his departure, Fox News Specialists was canceled by the network.[36]

Career after Fox

Bolling joined the Conservative Review's CRTV in the summer of 2018.[37] CRTV merged with TheBlaze to form Blaze Media in 2018; in December 2018, Bolling signed an agreement to stay with Blaze Media through 2021.[38] Bolling hosted the television show America on TheBlaze.[39]

Bolling began hosting America This Week, which is produced by Sinclair Broadcast Group and carried by their stations as a Sunday morning talk show, in 2019.[40][41] In 2020, Bolling conducted an interview for America This Week with Judy Mikovits, a discredited researcher featured in the video Plandemic.[42] The video promotes baseless conspiracy theories regarding the coronavirus pandemic, including false suggestion that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government's chief infectious disease scientist, "manufactured" COVID-19.[42] In the segment, Bolling also interviewed Mikovits's lawyer, the right-wing conspiracy theorist Larry Klayman.[42] During the interviews, Bolling made no meaningful attempt to challenge Mikovits or Klayman on their claims.[42] After the plans to air the segment on local Sinclair stations across the U.S. generated an outcry, Sinclair postponed the segment to "rework" it[43] before dropping the segment entirely two days later.[44] Bolling said he did not endorse Mikovits' claims.[44]

He's the closest thing in the media to Trump himself.
