Maybe they talk too much about race and more race

(My new American Thinker post)

Maybe it’s a coincidence, but I found this interesting.

Over at CNN, they couldn’t pass an opportunity to bring racism into the Tyre Nichols’ video. Check out Van Jones:

CNN commentator Van Jones attempted to make the case that the former Memphis police officers responsible for the death of Tyre Nichols “still might have been driven by racism” despite the fact that all five of them were Black.

In opinion piece published on CNN’s website on Friday, Jones began by recalling the 1991 police brutality case of Rodney King where four White cops were caught on film beating him. He noted that unlike King, Nichols did not survive.

The bottom line is that Van Jones is exhibit A that the demand for racism is greater than the supply. Looking for racism in all the wrong places or something like that.

Back to CNN, their ratings are a big “problema.” This is the story:

The liberal news network’s average primetime viewership plunged to just 444,000 viewers, according to TV Newser.

How bad is that? Well, Fox News pulled in just under two million primetime viewers during that same week.

And even more liberal MSNBC more than doubled CNN’s ratings, with 943,000 average primetime viewers.

The daytime is even worse for CNN. The network averaged just 417,000 viewers, while Fox News pulled in 1,387,00 million and MSNBC averaged 629,000 total viewers throughout the day.

Of course, there’s a good reason CNN’s ratings are pathetic: They’re so biased that viewers are tuning out in droves.

Yes, they are running away because they can’t watch anyone talking seriously over there. It’s either Trump, white nationalists, climate change, or racism, and that’s the programming. No wonder people are voting and changing channels.

This is for the "times flies" archives.

It's hard to believe but Claudine Georgette Longet was born in Paris on this day in 1941.   

Back in the 1960's, Andy Williams had a very popular TV show in the US.   Like many of you, I tuned in to catch the pretty Claudine Longet and her lovely kids.    

She also had a singing career and may have been a model before marrying Andy Williams.

Well, I don't know what she is doing now but she was a nice lady,

"In the beginning, the land was stained
Parched by the sun, deserts, and plains
Then the creators of the land
Created rain

I was that barren, wasted land
I was too weak to stand
Then the creators of rain created you

High on a mountain, growing there
Land was plenty, trees were rare
Then the creators of rain
Created air

I was that mountain, growing there
My life was empty, nothing there
Then the creators of air created you

There would be no land, no seas
To plants, no trees, no life, or me, without you

Life had forgot the carrying of
Dreams that were lost to fade above
Then the creators of rain
Created love

I was that dream that life had made
To search hope had fade
Then the creators love created you
Created you (created you)
Created you (created you)
For me..........."
