Pop Culture Downplays the Trump-Kim Summit

from Rush Limbaugh,

CALLER: … It’s almost like if it has to do with history right now, it’s not talked about. It’s almost like they’re just — and even my wife who’s on Facebook and talks to conservative people, even said to me that whole night and the next day there was nothing on Facebook. I thought this was a huge thing and it’s almost like it’s been swept away. I don’t get it.

RUSH: I’m glad that you said this. Because in social media, in Drive-By Media, they are sweeping this under the rug and not talking about it. I’ll give you the story again. We look at CNN, and we see that they can’t even put together 700,000 viewers in prime time.

And apparently Fox blew the lid off. I mean, five, six million viewers. In some cases, two and three times their average nightly audiences. And CNN I think bumped up over a million in this night, on Monday night.

Now, CNN on an average night can barely scrape together 700,000 viewers. But around the world on CNN International, they are it. I mean, the U.K. has Sky and Sky B, but CNN International is pretty much dominant. And CNN International is a duplicate for CNN. And the point is there is nothing positive about Trump at any time, ever, on cut-and-run international.

Therefore, people renewed the world only see the CNN version of this country and of Trump and of this summit. And all of this is by design. Trump is essentially nonexistent. When he’s doing something that might make him look good or be good for America it isn’t gonna get covered…

Okay. Here’s the scoop. ABC, I think a couple other networks, interrupted their prime time programming at nine o’clock Eastern on Monday night for 10 to 15 minutes to just get a little coverage of what’s going on with the Kim Jong-un-Trump summit, and then they went back to regular programming.

Now, the program that ABC interrupted was The Bachelorette. And apparently the fans, the viewers of Bachelorette went nuts! They lost it! They bombarded ABC and their local affiliates demanding that Trump and Kim Jong-un be taken off the air and The Bachelor put back on. But the good news is that Fox, the Hannity hour, outrated The Bachelor. That was sweet. So the networks didn’t spend much time on it at all, and when they did, their low-information voters wanted to know nothing about it.
