Late Night Comedy Is About Politics Not Comedy

What moonbattery infiltrates, it subordinates. Take late night comedy. It once served to entertain Americans of every stripe. Now it has little to do with comedy or even entertainment, having been reduced to Two Minutes Hate sessions. Instead of laughing at jokes, audiences applaud stridently partisan rhetoric.

Jay Leno and David Letterman are left-wing, but they managed to appeal to a broad audience. Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel have no interest in entertaining those who don’t conform to political correctness. The objective is no longer to make money by reaching a wide audience. It is to shore up the hegemony of liberal establishment moonbattery.

Mark Dice documents the descent of late night comedy into leftist political rallies:

Now for the good news:

It is possible that the abundance of liberal political satire shows has opened the door for conservative Greg Gutfeld to beat these programs in the ratings game because he offered a different perspective. According to the entertainment website The Wrap, “Gutfeld!” surpassed every other late-night show in August with a total average of 2.120 million viewers.

Television isn’t everything. The most popular talk show host may actually be Steven Crowder:

According to YouTube data, the “Louder with Crowder” show averaged 1,398,575 in viewers aged 18-44 between September 2020 and August 2021. This metric doesn’t include viewers aged 45-49, and doesn’t include views on Crowder’s home of BlazeTV, views on the video platform Rumble, Facebook, or various podcast platforms. …

The viewership figures are even more impressive when you factor in that Crowder’s YouTube channel has been suspended multiple times by the powerful video-sharing social media network owned by Google, which has prevented episodes of “Louder with Crowder” from being broadcast.

Even with Big Tech moonbats trying to hamstring him,

Crowder’s channel has amassed more than 1.4 billion views on YouTube.

The information infrastructure is controlled by leftists. Think of the viewership that might be achieved if regular Americans create their own.
