Media meltdown in progress.

Michelle Malkin writes today:

The numbers don't lie. Across the entertainment industry, viewers and fans are tuning out. It's no coincidence ratings are cratering as unhinged celebrities crank up their anti-Trump and anti-American antics.
Pro tip, Tinseltownies: Swapping your jazz hands for middle fingers and waving resistance fists at your customer base is bad for business. Let us count the waning ways.

She goes on to list some of the things I've been talking about the last little while. The Emmy Award, the NFL, TV shows, all the shit in our lives that is becoming so UN-entertaining that people are cutting the media cord in their millions.

This is my favorite bit here, because I love me some Algore bashing:

Al Gore's man-made disaster. Among the summer's hottest messes? Environmental scare-monger Al Gore's climate change sequel to "An Inconvenient Truth." The original green Chicken Little flick raked in nearly $50 million in 2006. The follow-up this summer, in release for a measly six weeks, scraped up less than $3.5 million in domestic receipts. Paramount tried to prop up the film with trailer endorsements from Bono, Randy Jackson, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Shailene Woodley. But their Hollywood helium couldn't lift Gore's cinematic lead balloon.

Emphasis all mine.

One of Rush Limbaugh's greatest triumph's ever: "ALGORE! Fetch me another brain!"

So, we can look forward to a future of empty football and baseball stadiums, empty basketball courts, empty movie theaters and empty bookstores. To compensate there will be full hockey arenas and NASCAR race tracks, NHRA drag strips, and so forth.

One thing will not change. There will still be nothing on TV.

Update, forgot to mention, first seen at Small Dead Animals. Because Kate wakes up before I do every day.

Well, at least maybe this will help stem the gushing of taxpayer money into new stadiums... tho historically, they've excused empty stadiums with "we must need a new one to attract people".

Hey Rez.

Taxpayer money for new stadiums will go to the Next Big Thing that comes down the pipe, probably hockey arenas if I had to make a prediction. The NHL could make an expansion as the only watchable franchise left.

Why? Hardly any black players, and lots of Canadians who won't put up with disrespecting their national anthem or anyone else's.

The one constant is the never-ending drive of the rent-seekers and thieves. They are hungry for that free cheese.
