NBA Game 5 2020 viewers -70% vs 2019

Rut Roh! It seems that all the political activism on the basketball court has seen NBA Game 5 drawing only 5.7 million viewers, according to TVLine, representing a nearly 70% decline from the 18.22 million viewers who tuned-in for Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals when the Golden State Warriors took on the Toronto Raptors.

No wonder the NBA is promising to keep its woke activities behind closed doors in 2021.

The NBA finally figured out that fans watch sports to distract themselves from politics and financial/marital/work stresses, not have it shoved down their throats.

George Floyd arrest body cam footage

Ben Shapiro breaks down the bodycam footage of George Floyd’s arrest which shows he was saying he couldn’t breathe from the beginning. Officers listened to his request to keep the windows down, to stay with him and showed no intent to murder him.

The end result is that Floyd still needlessly died while in the custody of Derek Chauvin who didn’t need to be on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Suffice to say Floyd’s autopsy revealed that he did not die of asphyxiation as was commonly claimed by the media.

We can imagine how rioting will reignite if Chauvin is acquitted of murder and charged with a lesser crime of aggravated assault.

The mainstream media will be only to glad to whip up misinformation for ratings as evidenced by the recent open letters from former staff at the NYT and MSNBC.

We are not at the beginning of the end but the end of the beginning. It looks like another case of an overeager DA looking to prosecute charges before seeing all the evidence. That’s the problem. Going for maximum sentences without knowing all of the facts means that over-promising and under-delivering becomes toxically incendiary.
