Well over a dozen Democrat senators (and an independent) have sent a letter to Senate leadership describing another area of the economy that deserves a government stimulus:

I’ve heard of at least 1 broadcast media company furloughing workers.

The Media's demand for stimulus packages as they allude to be frontline workers is the most outlandish demand I have heard. If they think the risk is too much they are at liberty to stay home.

If we could have a robust local media without the insane MSM I’d take that swap. Sadly it’s not an option.
