Day after our “Insurrection of the Capital”. I didn’t post yesterday’s post to my Facebook feed as I didn’t want to stir up every one or anyone on this particular day. But feel free to read the post from yesterday. Ted Cruz got in some trouble yesterday with his words on the senate floor. Of all people – Tucker Carlson called him on it. Immediately the Lincoln Project pounced on it and had an ad ready to run. I posted the ad below but if you’d like to watch the entire segment – you can see that here.
Though the whole comparing the Insurrection to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Cmon. Be reasonable.
How many streaming networks are you subscribed to? Or are you just a mainstream cable subscriber? Why were all the networks fast to push for their own streaming platforms? Fewer rules and regulations. For the longest time, HBO/Showtime (Premium cable networks) had the advantage that they could drop an F-bomb and have nudity on their shows. Ya know, just like life. But NBC, ABC, CBS were content companies and they had a very different set of rules they had to follow. Sopranoes came along and won award after award. Now with the streaming platforms (Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, Peacock.tv, ESPN+) they are on an even playing field. It truly is a great time to be a viewer as there is so much content. This little nugget dropped their trailer that’s coming to Peacock.tv. Looks decent perhaps.
A member of our family (Tom) got me hooked on Mr. Mercedes on Peacock.tv. Quite good. Based on the Stephen King novel and if you watch closely, Stephen King does make an appearance. Don’t you love when somebody recommends something and it turns out to be good? It seems you always ask two questions: What are you watching that I should be? What network/streaming service is it on?
