I've wondered at what point the ubiquitous cable news broadcasts would start disappearing from public places. A few months back I had my 4 and 8 year old boys in McD's for a quick breakfast, sitting about ten feet from a CNN broadcast in which the anchor was discussing ISIS beheadings, mass executions, etc. This was adjacent to the kids play area. And a few days ago, MSNBC was on maybe 20 different screens in my gym, when the host quoted The Mooch back to himself, reminding him that he not too long ago told Bannon to "suck his own penis" In those words.
At this point cable news has become the background soundtrack to everyday life. It really needs to stop. Good for them.
I quit cable news some time ago and I don't miss it. My dad, however, has MSNBC on 24/7. He's even starting to look like Rick Madcow. I mean, "Rachel Maddow." ;-)
