Small Talk: Kings and Queens

Recommended Posts

I am on my cell phone in cannot figure out how to share a link. But there is a report of an attack and murder being committed at the Sydney Australia center.

I was under the impression that Scientology had been outlawed in Australia.

Thanks iluvobx.

The article I read, from a different source, said that the 16 y/o boy/perp was trying to see his COS mother, which may be the domestic incident they were referring to.  I wonder if this is a case of disconnecting.

If you guys haven't read Mike Rinder's blog you should really check out the 1/5/19 article where he outlines CO$ new attacks on A&E and their extraordinarily twisted account of an encounter at a Doctors office in Florida where CO$ claims they just wanted to talk but he violently beat his ex-wife during the encounter.  Mike explains his ex, their kids and two PI's ambushed and surrounded him and that evidence including a police report states the ex got a scratch on the arm.   I especially enjoyed him pointing out the hypocrisy and so many of their statements.

Does A&E broadcast presidential adresses? There is one scheduled for 9:00 p.m. tonight and I'm sure most channels will be carrying it. Me? I could not care less! I'm just hoping it's not going to interfere with the CO$ Aftermath programming.  Tonight they're going to be talking more about CO$ money collection policies.

How ironic.  I'm sure the presidential address will be about getting billions of dollars, and so will tonight's Aftermath program. I could make all kinds of connections, but........nyah.

I was wondering the same thing - I never, ever watch a Presidential address no matter what party, I prefer to read the text of the speech later it takes out the grandstanding, unnecessary applause and inflections meant to shake your emotions (again I feel this way about all politicians no matter what party/ideology they represent).  Honestly I'd prefer these things be limited to news stations so people can tune in or not as they prefer.

But, to get off my soapbox and return to the issue at hand - Selfish as it might sound to some I was very much hoping that A&E is not in the loop for these and we get CO$ as usual with no interruption.  Was planning to watch the show live and rumor is the speech is only 8 minutes but in case A&E does broadcast it and it drags on or they have coverage before and after maybe I'll just set the DVR to record past 10pm or just watch the show on demand tomorrow.

 Don't forget the pundits following these broadcasts who have to tell us what we just heard and interpret it all for us. 

 I'm with you. I would rather read the content. 

Personally I believe all politicians are in one way or another tainted. By the time you been elected dogcatcher you have sold your soul to somebody, and cannot be trusted.

Usually only the cable news channels and over-the-air broadcast networks carry presidential addresses. Run-of-the-mill cable networks like A&E, TNT, TBS, etc. typically don't carry these.

No.  Only the four NON cable networks (CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX) are semi-required to carry it though the three cable "news" networks (CNN, MSNBC and FOX "so-called news") will as well of course.  PBS may or may not, don't know about them yet.  And I say semi-required because they could technically under the law refuse but then they would get sucked into a political storm and attacked if they refused. 

I would like to think (obviously don't) the timing opposite Leah was arranged by CO$ to try to cut into her ratings though because I too can see similar style connections too, heh.
