Kimmel whines about being censored

Without any sense of self-awareness, Jimmy Kimmel went on Twitter (of all places) to whine about a Dallas TV station cutting his monolog off in mid-sentence.

The unfunny late-night host used his spot to blame Republicans for the Uvalde Massacre.

The New York Post reported, "Kimmel was reacting to Tuesday’s massacre of 19 children and two adults at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. An 18-year-old, Salvador Ramos, is alleged to have used an assault rifle to mow down classmates and teachers.

"A few minutes into the segment, however, the local television station airing the show in Dallas, WFAA-TV, abruptly cut to a commercial.

"Kimmel, a supporter of gun control measures, posted a tweet just after midnight on Thursday in which he vowed to find out why WFAA-TV stopped airing the final four minutes of his nine-minute-long monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Tegna Inc. owns WFAA, which is an affiliate of ABC, which is owned by pedo-friendly Disney.

Kimmel's reaction was highly amusing. 

How dare they do that!

He will find out!

Heads will roll.

I am laughing my arse off because Kimmel and his supporters are the same nincompoops who lectured us that Twitter is a private company that can do what it wants when Twitter banned President Donald John Trump.

Sadly, the station denies censoring Kimmel.

The local Fort Worth paper reported, "Kimmel’s six-minute monologue was cut off by a string of commercials, beginning with an in-house WFAA/Channel 8 news spot. The ABC affiliate played several more commercials before cutting back into the end of the monologue, which Kimmel used for a three-minute Everytown.org commercial. The gun violence prevention organization aims to enact '“evidence-based solutions' to curb gun violence.

"A source at WFAA says the commercials aired and cut out part of the monologue because the 10 p.m. newscast ran long. It wasn’t just the monologue that received off-kilter cuts to commercials. An interview with Seth MacFarlane was chopped up into mangled segments between spots. The station posted an explanation of the technical issues on its website."

I suspect someone will apologize profusely to Kimmel who obviously is a money maker for the affiliate.

Still, his tears quenched my thirst this morning.

  1. Well, special Ed was on the highlights thread defending CNN after my comment. I'm sure he can find it in his heart to defend Jimmy as well.

  2. I haven't turned on my TV for quite a while, but if I were force to watch and only had two very bad choices, I'd pick 60 minutes of commercials to 3 of Kimmel.

  3. Our local Comcast/Xfinity cable provider seems to have a lot of audio problems during some news interviews.
    Like some comic described many years ago. You're watching the movie, the murderer is about tp be revealed, and some guy on the PA system breaks in with The snack bar will close in five minutes.

  4. I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…
    :)
    AND GOOD LUCK.:)

  11. I haven't watched late night TV since Jay Leno retired. He has more talent in his pinky than the entirety of all the current hosts combined.

  12. If a newscast runs long there are three ways for a TV station to handle it. Seeing as WFAA is an ABC affiliate they could've done one of the following.

    1: Time delay the following programs and JIP World News Now. The problem with this is many of the commercials are bought for a specific time frame and this pushes them out of it, thus making some of them "no good",. Those clients either get a refund or a free ad later on.

    2: Time Delay and compress. If they have to hit a later program at a specific time they'll time delay, get rid of all promos/PSA', push the commercials up and shorten the breaks by recueing the program to the next segment during the break hole. Best used if running under 5 minutes long.

    3: If a break was missed in a newscast and you need to air it ASAP for it to be good you should time delay programming and cram the extra break in between the newscast and the following programs.

    WFAA did none of these things. I suspect they're hugged and the hub master control ops don't have the time to be that fiddly with one station when they're riding herd on 60.
