NPR Hires Charlie Sykes As the Post-Trump Media Shakeup ContinuesJohn J. Falco January 23, 2017 0 COMMENTS
The Lone Nevertrumper still standing has found a new home on NPR. The hire shows the New York based radio network which has stations all throughout the country are shaking things up to diversify their lineup with a focus on middle America.
Many media networks have heard the cries of those who say they were lost in the wilderness, they were being ignored by the elites of Hollywood. All throughout the industry, this is changing! As familiar conservative faces, find new seemingly liberal homes. There have already been some changes to scripts in the shows that are going to start airing in the 2017 Winter and Summer seasons and in the 2018 fall season. Some networks have already aired shows that embrace America’s Heartland. Such as USA’s new show Shooter.
ABCs American Crime is telling a story about the immigration problems in American society, but they said it had nothing to do with the current politics of our country or who was in power.
CBS The Good Fight which is the spinoff of the hugely popular Good Wife, has changed their pilot episode because they expected Hillary to win since it is about an all women run pretty liberal law firm, their reactions and the motives for doing the things they do in the upcoming show has changed.
I already mentioned how ShowTime first shook things up two years ago, with The Circus and Billions. Some may also say that Homeland is a pretty freaking Conservative TV Show.
Back to Sykes he will be hosting a new show on NPR with alternative hosts every day of the week, called Indivisible, covering the first 100 days of the Trump administration. NPR describes the new show as, “Public radio’s national conversation about America in a time of change.” If NPR is looking to lock in on the ears of Trump supporters, they surely will be disappointed but for the rest of us, It couldn’t come at a better time.
