In my opinion, CSPAN, as my followers know, is a national treasure, providing unfiltered, gavel-to-gavel presentations of thousands of events back to the mid-1980s with transcripts archived forever.

CSPAN is especially helpful when, as in recent days, it gives us thorough coverage of the Senate hearings on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination. There’s no way any writer can so accurately provide insight into the demeanor of news personalities better than letting us see her and them with our own eyes.

God help us.

Here is my three-minute take on the latest example of Washington’s performance art show. Let me know in the comments if you think any of these folks are earning the $174,000 we pay each for their services every year.

See you Sunday afternoon, when my weekly column posts at Everything I write for Red State ends up right here.
