Some idiot in here is claiming the DNC convention did better than the RNC convention is doing. The facts say otherwise:


C-SPAN's livestream of the first night of the Republican National Convention has attracted nearly 440,000 views, marking a substantial increase over the start of the Democratic National Convention, which drew 76,000 views.
The numbers for Monday night come ahead of traditional TV ratings from Nielsen Media Research, which will be released on Tuesday afternoon.
According to Nielsen, 18.7 million people tuned in to the first night of the virtual Democratic convention from Milwaukee and Wilmington, Del., on Aug. 17, which featured speeches from former first lady Michelle Obama and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R)
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's speech on Thursday night was watched by 21.8 million people on TV, beating out the numbers for other major speeches at the party's convention earlier in the week.
Still, the numbers for Biden mark a 21 percent drop from presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic convention in 2016. They are also more than 38 percent lower than President Trump's acceptance speech at the Republican convention four years ago, which drew 34.9 million viewers.
The second night of the Republican convention will feature speeches from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and first lady Melania Trump, as well as President Trump's son Eric Trump.

Which is a good place to go if you don't want bullshit pundits breaking into every speech to give their two cents.

I tried EVERY NEWS OUTLET las night and every single one of them interrupted the speeches with their unnecessary bloviating.

I see no support for Biden------I see less for him than for hilliary at this time last year.

Biden lacks the ability to motivate people to go vote for him so this just leaves the cheating which the dnc and chinese are working hard at already.

Who is the inept moron and druggy Obama to say if anyone else is doing their job correctly? Obama couldn't operate a lemon stand successfully.

The best day for the democrat convention was when Joe Biden made an appearance and most of the audience probably tuned in to see Joe fall on his face.

From the Trump book of bullshit
WASHINGTON (AP) — Responding to an outcry from medical experts, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn on Tuesday apologized for overstating the life-saving benefits of treating COVID-19 patients with convalescent plasma.

Scientists and medical experts have been pushing back against the claims about the treatment since President Donald Trump’s announcement on Sunday that the FDA had decided to issue emergency authorization for convalescent plasma, taken from patients who have recovered from the coronavirus and rich in disease-fighting antibodies.

Trump hailed the decision as a historic breakthrough even though the treatment’s value has not been established. The announcement on the eve of Trump’s Republican National Convention raised suspicions that it was politically motivated to offset critics of the president's handling of the pandemic.

Hahn had echoed Trump in saying that 35 more people out of 100 would survive the coronavirus if they were treated with the plasma. That claim vastly overstated preliminary findings of Mayo Clinic observations.

Hahn's mea culpa comes at a critical moment for the FDA which, under intense pressure from the White House, is responsible for deciding whether upcoming vaccines are safe and effective in preventing COVID-19.

The 35% figure drew condemnation from other scientists and some former FDA officials, who called on Hahn to correct the record.

“I have been criticized for remarks I made Sunday night about the benefits of convalescent plasma. The criticism is entirely justified. What I should have said better is that the data show a relative risk reduction not an absolute risk reduction,” Hahn tweeted.

I’m very disappointed. Why would any sane person watch either criminal party’s convention? It’s all lies and propaganda.

Overall, 15.8 million people watched the final hour of convention coverage Monday, down 16% from Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s first night last week. Fox’s audience was up 238%, but Democratic convention viewership beat Republicans on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC.

While MSNBC and CNN combined had just under 10 million viewers for Biden’s first night, they had 3.6 million for Trump, Nielsen said.

CNN and MSNBC showed virtually all of the Democrats’ prime-time program last week, and it was clear Monday that for consistency’s sake, they would try to do the same for Republicans.

The RNC convention was a big flop. The DNC convention whipped their ass.

Those are all fake news channels, moron. Of course their viewership is down. C-SPAN is non partisan.
