Just the Beginning!

The House Select Committee on the January 6th Capitol Insurrection held its first public hearing last week. It is possible that as many as 20 million viewers tuned into it’s prime time slot. The Los Angeles Times estimated that ABC had the most viewers with 4.9 million, followed by MSNBC (4.2 million), NBC (3.6 million), CBS (3.7 million), CNN (2.6 million), Fox Business Network (223,000), CNBC (158,000), Newsmax (137,000) and NewsNation (125,000). The hearings were also shown on PBS and C-SPAN. Those last two audiences are not included in the Nielsen tally.

Fox News was the only major cable that did not carry the live hearing. NPR stated that “to have shown the uninterrupted documentation of the concerted attack on the Capitol in January last year and the concurrent effort to thwart the November 2020 presidential elections would have been to present information that was unwelcome to many core Fox News viewers.”  Actually Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity have put themselves a tough spot. Many of the lies they have deliberately spread will be disproven by direct evidence and personal testimony. The criminal misbehavior of many our lawmakers and statesmen is very likely to be revealed as well.

Chairman Thompson and Vice Chair Cheney

In his opening remarks, Bennie Thompson, Chairman of the Committee stated before the nation and the world “There’s no place for politics or partisanship in this investigation. Our only charge is to follow the facts where they lead us.” He went on to explain that “the only facts” of which he is concerned are “… what happened on January 6th, in the run-up to that tragic day, and what has taken place since. That’s what we’re charged to do by House Resolution 503.”

Vice Chairman, Liz Chaney, closed the hearing with a warning to her party. “I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible: there will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain.” Cheney, the daughter of previous U.S. Vice President, Dick Cheney, is one of the first in her party to repudiate Trump’s “BIG LIE” and place her political career in jeopardy by challenging the deception. Her public actions provide a courageous example for all those who are finding themselves in this political pickle.
