MSNBC: ‘January 6 Now! January 6 Tomorrow! January 6 Forever!’

Posted on | February 3, 2023 | 2 Comments

What is it with some people named Wallace, eh?

At any rate, today my office TV was tuned to Fox News until I got bored with endless repetition: “THE CHINESE SPY BALLOON!” So at 4 p.m., I changed the channel to MSNBC and thereby entered a time warp, as Nicolle Wallace spent the first 22 minutes of the hour “reporting” about how “lies and conspiracies” from Orange Man Bad that inspired The Worst Day in American History “are now deeply embedded in the politics of the GOP.” She went on about this, as I say, for twenty-two minutes, because apparently this is what the MSNBC audience craves — an endless diet of fuel for their fathomless hatred of Donald Trump, an all-you-can-eat buffet of Fear and Loathing that leaves them permanently fixated on January 6, 2021, in the way some nostalgic Southerners used to be permanently fixated on July 3, 1863 at Gettysburg.

I actually took some notes on the topics of the subsquent segments in Nicolle Wallace’s two-hour afternoon bloc of programming until, after she led the top of the second hour with another 22 minutes of Trump-obsessed “reporting,” it dawned on me: What is this “news” really about?


What important news have we just learned? Thanks to a letter from Hunter Biden’s lawyers, it has been confirmed that the “Laptop From Hell” was indeed his, and meanwhile there are questions about Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents, which may have been used by Hunter in his foreign business deals. So by filling her program time with Orange Man Bad bulletins and J6 nostalgia, Nicolle Wallace is distracting her audience from the scandals affecting the current resident of the White House, but her audience doesn’t know or care anything about such scandals. All that matters to them is making sure that Trump never gets back into the White House, which is why they insist that he must be criminally prosecuted for . . . something, anything, it doesn’t matter.

Well, I watch MSNBC so you don’t have to, but there’s only so much of it I can take. Back to Fox and the Chinese spy balloon hysteria, I guess.
