Poll: A Majority of Americans Agree that the Mainstream Media Publishes Fake News 5/26/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

This is gonna upset Fake News CNN. DailyCaller.com reports that a new poll from Harvard-Harris shows that almost two-thirds, 65 percent of Americans say the mainstream media published a lot of fake news, and some channels it’s the only thing they report. I made up that last part, but it’s true. Eighty percent of Republicans, 60 percent of Independents and 53 percent of democrats say the media has a fake news problem, but don’t except the fake news to report on their fake news problem anytime soon because they’re too busy reporting fake Trump news to take anytime for some self-reflection.

New Study Shows ESPN Losing Conservative Viewers Over Politics 5/25/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

In 2014 on this very show I said that ESPN was becoming the “Liberal Sports Progressive Network” and I guess a recent study agrees with me as a new Deep Root Analysis study as reported by FreeBeacon.com indicates that ESPN saw a decline in conservative leaning viewers between 2015 and 2016 in 34 of 43 TV markets.  ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN News all saw viewership declines among Republicans. If you’ve watched ESPN lately this probably isn’t too surprising to you as sometimes if you aren’t careful you might wonder if you are watching MSNBC over ESPN as many of their shows go political on topics instead of just sticking to sports. When people watch sports they’re watching to avoid politics, to relax. No one wants to hear a discussion on ESPN about politics. There are plenty of channels for that. The further left the channel goes, the further their ratings will go down. Hey Fox Sports 1! If you wanna increase you ratings, gain some ground on ESPN? Make Sports Fun Again by reporting on sports and not politics!  It would give you an advantage. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Innocence and Beautiful Young Lives Lost at Ariana Grande Concert 5/24/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript and may contain errors:

I always dread the days I have to come on here and discuss a tragedy that occurred and once again, here we are, all having to witness another tragic event. This time in Manchester at the Ariana Grande concert. So many beautiful, innocent lives lost, some as young as 8 years old. It’s hard to even find the words to say about it. So many parents lost their precious babies. I cannot even begin to imagine how much pain they must feel. Once again this is just another reminder that evil exists in the world, and evil must be defeated. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. In honor of those lost, today I’m ending the show with a moment of silence. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary. (Silence).

Is Dwanye 'The Rock' Johnson 2020's Ross Perot? 5/23/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript (May contain errors):
 

Do you smell what The Rock is politicking? As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has hinted that he may run for president sometime, and now those rumors are becoming more widespread that he may run in 2020 against Trump. Imagine that. Hollywood movie star versus Hollywood TV star. What a world we live in. No doubt the democrats need someone to run for them in 2020 since they have no one on their bench or anyone that can match the charismatic personality of Obama. So, The Rock fits that check off box for them: he’s charismatic, likeable, hip, I mean he’s a movie star, right up the left’s alley. What more could the left want?! It’s not surprising that he’s beating Trump, a man with a political record, versus a guy that no one knows what he believes except that we all agree that he’s a likable dude. No way he’ll be the democrat nominee in 2020, but if he actually wanted to run and not just have a cool P.R. stunt, he could help the democrats win if he went third party. Remember Ross Perot? The billionaire ran third party and helped Bill Clinton win, and if The Rock did that, he could pull in just enough votes to help the democrats come close to beating Trump.

Conservatives Should Impeach the Mainstream Hollywood Media 5/22/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The Following is Rush Transcript (May contain errors):

Today I call for the impeachment of the mainstream and Hollywood media for the high crimes of libel, slander and reputation attacks that they commit on a daily basis of not only President Trump, but countless others as well. Now of course, we cannot actually impeach the media, since technically they’re not officially government officials, just he P.R. department of the democrat party, but it’s true, that on a daily basis they make up fake information, false facts, and just outright lie about people from Trump to conservative media figures and religious people. The list could go on and on. As I said, we cannot actually impeach them, but you can vote against them by daily not visiting their websites, watching their channels or movies, buying their newspapers or books. If enough people did this, they may receive the message and change their tune so they can be re-elected by the American public by us watching them again.

Conservatism Lost a Giant and America Lost a TV Genius with the Passing of Roger Ailes 5/19/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript (May contain errors):

On Thursday, America lost a giant in the conservative movement. Roger Ailes, the founder and former Fox News head is probably second only to Rush Limbaugh in regards to those that have had influence in the conservative movement over the past few decades. Mr. Ailes helped Nixon, George H.W. Bush, become President. Worked with Ronald Reagan, executive produced The Rush Limbaugh TV show and in 1996 was hired by NewsCorp’s Rupert Murdoch to start the Fox News Channel. Over the past 20 years, FNC provided conservatives a place to hear their point of view, and in the process created the most important news organization in cable TV, but the influence of Fox goes well beyond that. Fox News is one of the most important media outlets in America. Fox would’ve never become what it has without him. He’s a fighter for Republican conservatism, and I’m afraid that there aren’t too many in the media left that are willing to fight politically like Ailes was willing to do. Like all of us, he wasn’t a perfect man, but being a conservative and a guy that loves the media business, I’ve admired and followed Ailes for years. Roger Ailes was a television genius. The likes of which, we may never see again. He changed television news forever with the creation of Fox. In honor of his passing, today I leave you with a moment of silence.

There are More Republicans Than You'd Wish to Admit that Would Support Impeaching Trump 5/18/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript (May contain errors):

Well here go. I’m not surprised by all the impeachment talk, I’ve said before that it would be a matter of when not if in regards to the democrats trying to impeach Trump, and the talk has only increased in the past few days, and I’m sure by the time this commentary is posted for your listening pleasure, they’ll be a new scandal or story out there about Trump. It’s something new daily now. We all know all the democats and the media if they could vote would vote to impeach Trump yesterday if they could. What’s interesting to me, and maybe it’s something you haven’t thought about, is how many Republicans would vote to impeach Trump. Some of these Republicans in swing districts in the House and the Washington establishment GOPers in the Senate no doubt would give Trump the political boot. If they believe Trump’s going down, they’re not gonna wanna go down with the ship when it’s re-election time. Don’t under estimate how many Republicans are Never Trumpers and would jump at the opportunity to have him waving like Nixon as he steps on Marine One. Even if it means they lose in 2018 or even 2020, if losing means getting rid of Trump, there are more Republicans then you could imagine that would be all for it.

Corporations Care More About Saving Green Than Going Green 5/16/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

The following is a rush transcript (May contain errors):

Monday while walking into a big-box superstore I noticed a sign that discussed how this company supports the planet and going green and all that environmental jazz. This led me to a thought that I’ve had for a while which I haven’t shared, but I want to now, and that is that the going green, the environmental movement is the single easiest way for a corporation to score some quick and easy positive P.R. it’s really an issue they cannot lose on. They can go promote that they care about saving energy, the planet, whatever, and who is gonna be against saving the planet? Is anyone anti-planet? No. So it’s a win-win situation for them. They gain positive P.R. and it’s a great marketing tool and at the same time, they save money by using less energy and becoming energy efficient. It’s a genius marketing move. Now, do the corporations actually believe in the green movement? Sure, some do. No doubt Starbucks does. Do I believe that most do? No. The corporations care about saving green, more than going green. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary

It's Gonna be a Long Hot Summer Between Trump and the Media 5/15/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

 

The following is a rush transcript (May contain errors):

If you’re hoping that this summer will be nice, calm, peaceful and more laid back in regards to Trump and politics, you are mistaken. Folks, we are in for a long, hot summer between Trump and the media. The impeach Trump effort is not gonna slow down just because the summer months are here. All of the ridiculousness is gonna continue non-stop with the media working overtime and maybe even on vacation to try and have Trump gone, maybe by the 2018 midterms, but the sooner the better. James Comey, Russia, all of this stuff, it’s not gonna go anywhere. In past presidencies the summer months were more laid back, with not a lot of seriously important things occurring, but with Trump, that’s never gonna to happen. He goes 24/7 and so does the mediacrats that are out to have him kicked out of the White House. The temperature is gonna be rising and it’s not because of the summer sun, but because of the media’s blood pressure rising as they take turns bashing Trump. They really need to take a chill pill, cool down, go to the beach. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

I'm a Millennial and I Still Believe in the American Dream 5/12/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

There has been a lot of stories written in the press about the death of the American Dream, and how it’s not possible for millennials to achieve it anymore, that America’s best days are well behind us. Well, I don’t buy into these pessimistic attitudes that are being broadcasted on the TV, and within the pop culture. I’m a millennial, and I still believe in the American Dream. I believe that if you work hard, are honest, fair, follow the rules, and treat others with kindness that not only can you have success, you will achieve the American Dream. My generation has been told a lot of big government lies that we need to rely on the government for our needs, but it’s wrong. This is still the United States of America and if you put in the effort, you still can make it. And now that we have pro-America leadership under Trump, there is even more room for optimism  than ever before for millennials, and Americans of all ages.

Millennials Wanna Dump Trump but Not His Policies 5/11/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

 The Institute of Politics at Harvard University released their spring survey on Tuesday and found in a sample of over 2600 millennials that only 32 percent of the 18-29 year olds polled approve of President Trump so far, with 41 percent giving him a grade of F. But when it comes to some of his agenda items, they like them bigly.

 The College Fix reports that 60 percent of the respondents said “cracking down on countries’ illegal and unfair trade practices that hurt American workers” would make America better. 48 percent — said “ending the ‘anti-police’ atmosphere in America and empowering law enforcement” would improve the nation.

Of course, as you’d assume they’re not big on the Obamacare repeal or temporary refugee ban. However, with some of his agenda items having such big league support, I believe it’s pretty obvious what conservatives should do.

We should find some celebrity that Millennials love, say maybe The Rock, he wants to be president, and tell them it’s The Rock’s policies and just let him be pretend president while Trump does the actual work. Sorta like a figure head. Pop stars or social media celebrities will work too, and then watch how the support among millennials goes up for Trump policies.

Good News: Study Shows Millennials are for Freedom of Speech and Religion 5/10/17 -A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Well here is some encouraging news. FreeBeacon.com reports that The Fund for American Studies, TFAS, released the results from a new national survey that showed over 90 percent of millennials support freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Six out of ten millennials would choose liberty (60%) over security (40%), but 54% of millennials support "more government" over "less government" (40%).

It’s not too surprising that millennials would favor more government over less since they’ve grown up in a world that has an ever increasing government that attempts to control areas of our lives and provide social services, with the current example being the debate on Obamacare in Congress. It’ll be hard to change millennials minds on a big active government, but at least they’re for freedom of speech and religion, so I guess two out of three isn’t bad.

Reasons Why It Would Be Difficult To Start the New Rumored Conservative News Network 5/9/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

With Sincliar Broadcast Group’s purchase of the Tribune Media Company new rumors are out there that they’re gonna use this deal to launch a new conservative network to compete with FoxNews. Since I’m getting my PhD in mass communication, I thought I’d share my thoughts on this possible new conservative network and just how difficult it would be to start it. It’s not impossible, but it would be very difficult. When Fox launched in 1996, we were living in a very different world. Cable was still king and the web was still in its early days. Now though we are living in the Netflix world and cable is on the decline. It was easier for Fox to start in ’96 because not only was cable still king, there was nothing before like it on television so it has a 20 year head start to developing a loyal audience. Now you have multiple places to go for conservative headlines including Fox, but also many online outlets, so there is more competition than ever for conservative leaning news. Not to mention younger Americans, and really Americans of all ages are using the web or their mobile phones for their go to spot for news and skipping cable all together. Because of the rise of the web and the decline of cable, cable companies are very reluctant  to adding new channels or moving existing channels into a better cable package because cable makes its money from the big channels so it’s gonna be hard to find a spot for an upstart channel in a cable lineup. Also it’s gonna be hard to find grade A talent for the network because Fox has most of them already. With an already established player such as Fox, you need some big names to help build credibility, and I don’t see Sean Hannity leaving Fox. A second conservative channel would be cool, but in 2017 with the cost of starting a coast-to-coast successful cable channel more expensive and risky than ever, I’d consider starting a OTT service for Roku boxes or a streaming channel on a website.

I Want My Facebook TV! Social Site to Produce TV Shows. (I Help Out with Possible Show Titles) 5/8/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

 Facebook is planning to launch about two dozen TV like shows in mid-June according to Business Insider. Not surprising considering video is so big on the social site and everybody else is getting into TV, so sure, why not Facebook too? So what type of shows can we expect on Facebook? Well, mostly typical shows such as sitcoms and dating shows, so I’ve created a list of possible Facebook related shows that the social platform should consider producing:

Keeping Up with the Zuckerbergs: Follow Mark around on his exciting shopping journeys as he decides which grey T-shirt to by.

Crazy Uncle Rants: Watch as Facebookers crazy uncles share their crazy Facebook post rants on topics they know nothing about from politics, to sports, to healthcare and more!

Six Degrees of Facebook Friends: We all have those people on our friends list that we know we met once, I mean, we had too, they’re on our friend’s list right? Well, watch as Facebookers learn how they actually know those people on their list who is friend of a friend that you possibly hung out with one night at the bowling alley on the Six Degrees of Facebook Friends!

On Married or Pregnant? Contestants try to guess which of their Facebook friends are getting married or are pregnant so that they’ll know if they need to adjust their news feed settings accordingly in order to avoid the thousands of engagement or baby photos.

OMG! She’s Posting Again? That’s Like the Tenth Post Today! Watch as angry Facebookers get all the frustration over their Friends that use Facebook like Twitter and share status updates all throughout the day.

My So-Called Life as a Disney Princess Watch as girls play out their fantasies of being a real life Disney princess for a day after they take one of those Facebook quizzes that goes viral and probably steals every ounce of your personal data, but man are they fun to play!

Is the Healthcare Repeal the Beginning of Trump Delivering on his Big League Campaign Promises? 5/5/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Thursday the House of Representatives passed a repeal Obamacare bill that the democrats greeted with chants of “Na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey goodbye as they believe this will make a lot of Republicans lose their seats in the midterms thus once again showing how out of touch they are with the American voter and their interests.

It’s the opposite, people are gonna cheer the repeal of O-care…if this bill is really all the much better. For that I guess we’ll have to wait and see. If the Senate somehow by a miracle passes this, and Trump signs it, is this the beginning of Trump delivering on his bigly campaign promises?

Getting rid of Obamacare and building a wall, those were two big league items he promised to take care of. If this is the beginning of him taking care of business, then it’s the Republicans that can say “Na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey goodbye to more democrats losing their seats in the 2018 midterms.

Stephen Colbert Should Be Held to the Same Standard as Conservative Hosts 5/3/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

So when does the advertiser boycotts of Stephen Colbert begin? If you haven’t heard CBS Late Night Trump Hate Show host Colbert concluded his typical and nightly I hate Trump monologue with a homophobic slur. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that FoxNews has had some trouble of late with advertiser pulling ads from The O’Reilly Factor and women groups protesting outside Fox HQ demanding that Bill O had to go. Same thing happened to Rush Limbaugh a few years ago after some on air remarks. So now we have Stephen Colbert, a card carrying leftist in good standing that has used a homophobic slur against the President of the United States. Him saying this would’ve been wrong if he had said it against anyone, including POTUS. Colbert should be treated like Rush and Fox. There should be outrage at the liberal groups that protested the conservative media that he would say this. Gay rights groups should be planning protests and demanding he be fired. Of course, none of that is gonna happen, because he said it about Trump, so it’s ok, and even funny. You let Sean Hannity say the same thing and it would be the only story on CNN. It’s just another example of the selective moral outrage from the left. If you work in the media, you can say anything as long as you’re on their team. And it shouldn’t be that way. Conservatives and liberals in the media should be held to an equal decency standard, but I know that’ll never happen. And no, I don’t believe that Cobert should be fired.

Everyday Sunday: Imagine the Change If We Lived on Mondays Like Church Makes Us Feel on Sundays 5/1/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Don’t you love Sundays? I mean the feeling on a Sunday morning at church is really a hopeful feeling isn’t it? The worship music, the preacher offering a message of encouragement. On Sundays you just feel better right? But then Monday cometh. And the stress and the deadlines and the 9 to 5 non-stop constant busyness of living life. Can you imagine how much better our days would be if we started mentally living on Mondays like we feel on Sundays?  If we all didn’t let the stress of life get in the way of living life knowing that He’s in control. It’s easier said than done, I understand. We all have a thousand things to do during the week. But I wanna challenge you, to try it. Try to make this Monday more like Sunday. Maybe switch the radio over to the Christian station from rock to hear a more positive message, download a sermon podcast and listen at work, do whatever it takes to remind you that there is more to life than the 9 to 5 and you never know, these small changes may make a big change to your stress level and mental state. You may even start looking forward to Monday’s. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Praise Jesus: Trump Cabinet Members Meeting Weekly for Prayer and Bible Study 4/28/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Christian Broadcast Network reports that members of President Trump’s cabinet are meeting weekly for prayer and Bible study in Washington. Some members of the group that attend include Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Tom Price, Sonny Perdue, Ben Carson, among others. This is a change from the last administration. During Barack O’s reign, we saw religious organizations and Catholic nuns have to sue over the contraception mandate in Obamacare, Hobby Lobby have to sue, Chick fil A being boycotted, atheism increase 16% from 2007, and the list could go on. Trump said that we’re gonna say “Merry Christmas” again and it’s good to know that we have an administration that respects, supports and will defend faith in America.

The Coming Cashless Society is Gonna be a Boom for Bank Fraud 4/27/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A new study out from Ipsos reports that a third of Europeans and Americans are totally cool with us having a cashless society and really if they’re Millennials they’re already probably living in a cashless society ‘cause we are broke! The study reported that 20% of people already hardly use cash now. Places where cash is used the most are the places that people are willing to ditch it the most. We already have credit cards and now we can pay with a phone app, but I’m not sure I wanna go cashless. Can you imagine the hacking, bank fraud that’s gonna take place when all they need to do to wipe your account out is hack an app or website? Call me old fashion at 31, but I’d still rather have some cash on hand, especially after an account I had a few years got hacked! I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.

Meet George Jetson: Uber Planning Flying Cars Test Drive 4/26/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Pretty soon I guess we can all be our own George Jetson as Uber has announced they plan to test drive in 2020 their own fleet of flying cars! In the not so distant future if this goes as according to plan, you’ll be able to beat the gridlock all together by skipping grabbing a car on the ground and instead take to the skies to make it to work on time. The flying cars would work similar to how helicopters land and takeoff.

It’s also scary to imagine that sometime in the near future you’re gonna have to look out for drones and flying cars flying above your head that could crash, or worst, a flying car being driven by a Millennial that will probably be too busy taking flying selfies or “Flyies” as I’m calling it, to pay attention to the road in the sky!
