Hollywood stars, athletes driving away
viewers with political activism, poll finds

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/21/2018 3:12:57 PM

Actors and athletes increasingly using their forums for political activism are turning off viewers, according to a newly released poll. A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

Gee what a surprise. s/o That´s all well and good, but I wish it impacted those filthy leftists where they really felt it. Until they are severely hurt financially nothing will change. Even then that´s probably doubtful.

I wonder how much was spent on this "study" I could have told you the result for free.
Remember the "old saying" shoemaker , stick to thy last.
Meaning, do what you do and do it well, don´t muck about with things you know nothing about or aren´t proficient at.

Really? Wow, I´m glad someone finally figured it out. I could have told you this years ago when I quit watching late night TV comedy. It turned from real comedy in the tradition of Johnny Carson to vile venomous left-wing tasteless hate jokes by all the jokesters that are on now. Musician and athletes lose me for good when they inject their politics into the show or sporting event. Take a knee for the National Anthem? Buh-bye, I am outta here. Make a left-wing rant at a $100+ per ticket music concert and I´m shredding your CDs and burning your bands Tshirts. You know who you are.

Being "in the money" this one pitfall never occurred to them. When, old, wrinkled, and unemployed, it might at last come back to hit them on the head.

I am so tired of being lectured to during almost every program on TV. Whether it´s gays, transgenders, Muslims, refugees, illegal immigrants spousal abuse, guns, animal rights, the "benefits" of marijuana a long diatribe will be given by at least one character while another is "shamed" into action or agreement.

A few of my old favorites are on the cusp right now. Old movies, reruns and streaming services are our refuge.

My wife and I used to go to almost every movie made, had Academy Awards parties, etc. Now we have not set foot in a theater in over a year, and we find that we don´t miss it. Don´t watch any of the awards shows or late night TV. And no NFL, starting with Kapernick.

I wasn´t polled (thank goodness! I hear it´s painful!)... but:
- I used to watch at least the opening monologue of Kimmel´s pretty regularly. Not so much any more.
- WHAT is the deal with Jim Carrey? I´ve been a fan since Fireman Frank, for cryin´ out loud! And now he fancies himself a left-wing "artist" - you know, with "art" you can hang on a wall?

You´d a-thunk they would´ve learned something from the Dixie Twits, but apparently some people are slow learners.

They´re free to spout... their fellow citizens are free to vote with their pocket books.

Last Man Standing, HGTV, cooking shows and old movies are the only things worth watching on TV. I haven´t been to a "new"movie in years. I am not the least bit interested in what comedians, talk show hosts, or celebrities have to say about anything. They´re a bunch of ejits.

Hard to believe it took a study to find out why we left shows and Sports events in droves. We are sick and tired of the LEFT and everything attached to it! Enough of the Commercials showing Two daddies or a mixed Race couple in Bed. Enough of the majority of new shows having at least one Gay person. We know it happens in real life, we don´t need it shoved into our TV viewing time. We want to be entertained, not be indoctrinated! As for Sports, I think many fans may never return. We were so disgusted by the kneeling of Black Athletes, and the way the League and Owners handled it, that we don´t feel like wasting our time watching people who have such a lack of respect for our Country!! I think it will take a lot of convincing from the offenders to bring us back.

Anyone capable of understanding logic, reason, or facts already knew this.

But since LIE-berals are missing that part of the brain that processes logic, reason, and facts -- but have a very large capacity for understanding FEELINGS instead -- it´s easy to see how they would miss this (and will probably argue with this even now)!!!

99% of the ads on TV feature smart, savy Blacks, and if a caucasian happens to be in the ad, they´re always stupid and ignorant.

Somewhere in the process of communist indoctrination not only were their positions shaped but the commandment to evangelize was also embraced.

Got to give them credit, it´s a genuine religion where the cause is held above more easily defined self interest.

At very best, half of your customers will like your position and half will dislike it. Angering half of your customers is ulta stupid. In many cases, like country music, it is likely to be way more than half unhappy.

In its first stint, I was not a big fan of "Will and Grace." It was okay, but nothing I would go out of my way to watch on TV.

However, in its second stint, I am finding it fairly entertaining -- with one BIG exception. I am tired of all the jokes suggesting Mr. Trump and his voters hate Latinos, are all about money, etc., etc. -- you know, the usual Lib accusations against Republicans.

The last episode that aired crossed the line. It wasn´t just jokes about orange hair. (I see nothing wrong with those kind of jokes because Mr. Trump DOES have funny hair. And he knows it.) It essentially accused a big swath of America of being haters.

And that ain´t funny, McGee!

It´s hurting them financially in a big way already. They will keep the numbers secret but wait until the football season starts this year and you begin to see big discounts, empty seats and disappearing sponsors. I won´t see it because I will never watch again but it will be hard to hide when the season begins. As sponsors pay less money and gate receipts begin to hit rock bottom, the primadonnas will begin to complain about their incomes and not being able to afford a new Mercedes this year. They killed the Golden Goose but will continue to blame Donald Trump. By the time he spoke up I was already gone.

I watched Jimmy Kimmel almost every night for multi years, but no more. People like Jane Fonda, Sean Penn et al. were always off my list, no matter how talented, but a whole new group of "stars" who, because they live with the like minded, feel perfectly fine mouthing off politically, not on issues but just on how they hate Trump, have joined the pantheon of those whose films etc. I will not pay to see. ( I am not keen on Trump´s boorishness or his "Little Whomever" tweets but also feel that if he didn´t have that forum his administration´s accomplishments would never be known.) There is no balance, just vitriol from people who live with armed bodyguards and, like the Obama´s, build high walls around their residences. I also laugh at Biden excoriating Trump re: women when he is the oh so creepy Mr. Hands On over and over and forces his female FBI guard watch him swim nude each warm day, What bloody hypocrites!

I believe that the actors, musicians and athletes spout their garbage is that they live very insular lives and guard themselves so closely to avoid the lunatic stalking fans and invasive paparazzi. As such, they have no sense of the every day world. Other than a few, most are poorly educated if at all. Finally, one way to get headlines is to make horrible statements against Americans.

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker´s assessment of Strzok´s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok´s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
