  1. Why isn’t it on cable tv? MSNBC and other legacy networks are on. CBS is noticeably absent. I like CBS but can’t find it

  2. John,
    A comment from Nebraska.

    I realize the world is moving forward. However, we in the sparsely settled area of the country have a major problem. Internet, affordable that we can stream with. Second, a smart TV. The tv is on the list when one dies that we have. We don’t just buy new because we want it.
    Our internet is really questionable. Being seniors on a budget, we are still using DirectTV, and AT&T does not provide internet here.
    I would love to watch you show. I know CBS is moving to streaming services. We have not kept up and it saddens me. I don’t see the Broadband funding doing much for us.
    I’ll keep checking

  3. It is so refreshing to watch you do the wrap-up on the day’s news. You are the best part of my day. Thank you for your thoughtful, critical look at the issues.

  4. As stated above, I dont understand why this is not on the cable channel. SHOULD BE! John is THE voice I want to hear for the important issues of the day. Streaming is so so, I want to be able to record/watch on a dependable schedule rather than trying to search out his broadcast. Come on CBS!!!

  5. A note I posted to John’s fb post:
    Thanks for the link but I don’t understand why CBS doesn’t also use its other broadcast channels for your show. Monday at 7:00 I’ve got The Closer, Sell This House and Everybody Loves Raymond on channels 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4…and not to put those shows down but I’d think your content would be more valuable to advertisers. Come to think of it, it should be mandated under Broadcast Standards & Practices to use the new subchannels for counteracting online misinformation. They don’t call it mass media for nothing, so not to do so is just stupid since OTA viewership is up to 23%. A few years ago it was in the mid teens, so if we’re going to make our country smarter, we need smart content from the smartest people transmitting 1:millions (over the air) versus 1:1 streaming, where a single transmission is required for each viewer. This would also balance viewership socially since the lower socio-economic strata are more likely to have a free antenna over a paid monthly service.

  6. I just can’t understand why Trumps face is on constantly. He gets press and more free press. Report the story then move on. If CBS hadn’t cow towed to him in past election. Spewing lie after lie. No fact checking. It’s a disappointment how things have run on major news stations.

  7. John, Has no one noticed that Trump is actually claiming he declassified highly sensitive national security information that if declassified as claimed it would do grave damage to our national security? Isn’t that an important point to make to the public and the media at large?
    Also, why isn’t his ridiculous claim that he can declassify by just saying “it’s declassified” being challenged by critically thinking journalists like yourself. I mean really, declassifying such documents without documentation or communication to the appropriate authority is absolutely laughable!
    Finally for this comment, what does it say about Donald Trump’s level of cognition (and fitness for duty) to be guilty of the facts of this case regardless of what you believe about the DOJ and whether or not you have contempt for so much of America and so many Americans like he does.
