Lights! Cameras! Action! January 6th Committee Hires Professional TV Producer For Televised Hearings

“will reportedly work behind the scenes with the committee and its staff to craft messaging and production during the hearings, which begin Thursday night during prime time”

Democrats are deeply invested in the January 6th Committee. They hired a seasoned, professional television producer to help supervise their prime-time hearings this week.

They clearly want this to be the television event of the season, like the finale of a popular series.

Dominick Mastrangelo reports at The Hill:

Former ABC News president helping Jan. 6 committee with presentation of prime-time hearings

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol has enlisted the help of a veteran network news executive as it aims to make its case to the American people during prime-time hearings this week that former President Trump incited an insurrection against the U.S. government.

James Goldston, who worked for nearly two decades at ABC News as a senior producer and eventually president of the news division, has joined the committee as an adviser specializing in media production and presentation, according to multiple reports.

Goldston will reportedly work behind the scenes with the committee and its staff to craft messaging and production during the hearings, which begin Thursday night during prime time.

Axios reported on Monday that Goldston aims to help with presentations during the hearings that are “raw enough so that skeptical journalists will find the material fresh,” using a mixture of live witness testimony and pre-taped interviews.

This has been confirmed by multiple people.

While we’re on the subject of the January 6th Committee, you may not have heard that they’re now delving into other areas, like the foundation of America’s election system.

Axios recently reported:

Scoop: Jan. 6 committee’s private divide

The House’s Jan. 6 committee has split behind the scenes over what actions to take after the public hearings: Some members want big changes on voting rights — and even to abolish the Electoral College — while others are resisting proposals to overhaul the U.S. election system, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: Televised hearings begin Thursday night. Committee members are in lockstep about capturing Americans’ attention by unfurling a mountain of evidence connecting former President Trump and those close to him with the attack on the Capitol…

The big picture: Disagreements arise whenever proposals are raised such as abolishing the Electoral College, vastly expanding voting rights like same-day registration or tightening the Insurrection Act to make it harder for a president to deploy the military domestically for use on civilians.

So we have to abolish the Electoral College to prevent another so-called insurrection?

Is that what they’re really trying to tell us?

Nothing proclaims this isn’t a propaganda riddled show trial like hiring a professional TV production staff to broadcast this farce in prime time. Holy Orwell, Batman!.

    Maybe they can get Zellensky’s Producer. He does a good job.

    Some sage said the revolution wouldn’t be televised. I wonder…

    ruralguy in reply to CommoChief. | June 7, 2022 at 5:05 pm

    The cost for this propaganda production likely far exceeds the damages done by the Jan 6th protests: $1.5 million.

    By contrast, these woke scolds burned down whole sections of Minneapolis and St. Paul, during the George Floyd insurrection, damaging or destroying 1,500 businesses/stores. The same people chairing this committee cheered on this destruction that caused over $2 billion in damages nationwide. If you account for the lost of civility in this nation and the defunding of police, the damages are far higher. Every one of the left-wing jokes should be put on trial for treason, when the Republicans gain control of Congress, serve serious prison terms for this insurrection, and deport for good once their sentences are served.

A scripted JOKE.

    MattMusson in reply to 2smartforlibs. | June 7, 2022 at 11:31 am

    Like Joe Biden?

      Paul in reply to MattMusson. | June 7, 2022 at 12:28 pm

      He’s such a joke he’s unable to even read the script.

      Barky sounds like the idiot that he is without his teleprompter, but at least he sounded smooth while reading it. Biden* sounds like a senile mental retard. Oh, wait….

Have any of the Democrats, including Cheney, ever acted in a trench before?

Operation Kangaroo Court is now in full swing

#*&@^ them all and the horse they rode in on.

Tucker Carlson has announced he’s airing a special at the same time, to examine the unanswered (and un-asked) questions surrounding this incident.

Meanwhile, the Dims are promising to “block and shut down” the Supreme Court to prevent it from announcing it’s Roe v. Wade decision. Muh Insurrection!

    n.n in reply to Paul. | June 7, 2022 at 2:31 pm

    The rite of planned human sacrifice for social, redistributive, clinical, and fair weather causes will not be denied. That said, Roe, Roe, Roe your baby, granny, yourself… down the river Styx.

This is a kangarro court with a show trial designed by Hollywood to intimidate conservatives

    taurus the judge in reply to Steven Brizel. | June 7, 2022 at 12:41 pm

    That’s unlikely (for the following reasons)- this is assuming it will be done fairly ( which I doubt but obvious attempts to railroad will be seen by all and have an adverse effect)

    First, it wont “intimidate” conservatives- if anything it will incite them to get more serious about November.

    This event is basically a 1 shot “flash in the pan” so its doubtful it will carry any significant weight in things like changing voting laws, abolishing the EC and all that.

    If I were to analyze this in terms of a psyop as far as goals and objectives, I would guess:

    The immediate goal of this “event” is a Hail Mary to drum up numerical support for the left based on the falsely held belief that the “people” actually support them but they don’t get the message out. It cannot be to take the “peoples” attention away from inflation, gas, immigration because those are well embedded issues the people see and feel every day and no prime time special is going to have any effect on that any more than a mini-series would.

    The end goal would be (hopefully) to spawn something to help them in the mid terms.

    Personally, I am glad they are doing this because it shows the fear they have and the uncertainty they share- this will most likely hurt them even more.

Liz Cheney is determined to lose her seat in record setting fashion. Abolishing the Electoral College relegates Wyoming to being a backwater territory with no political power whatsoever. How close to 0% will her vote total in the primary?

A bigger farce than the televised HUAC hearings where Santa Claus was declared a. communist.

    Did they really do that?

      stevewhitemd in reply to Paul. | June 7, 2022 at 12:57 pm

      No, the HUAC barred Jerry Rubin, who was dressed as Santa Claus for one of their hearings. He also dressed once as a Revolutionary War soldier. He was a commie but an entertaining one.

        The Gentle Grizzly in reply to stevewhitemd. | June 7, 2022 at 1:14 pm

        HUAC also used a publication called Red Channels and some others as “authority” of who was communist or a communist influence. Santa Claus was listed as one such.

        A real shame is: many conflate the BUAV circus with Joe McCarthy’s tel hearings and write him off. I was guilty if that for many years.

Just remember your taxpayer money is paying for this. I doubt everyone attached to this is doing it for free.

“We had faces. There aren’t any faces like that anymore. maybe one-Schiff.” Norma Desmond

“Alright, Mr. Demille, I’m ready for my close-up.” Adam Schiff

Will they break for commercials I wonder?

taurus the judge | June 7, 2022 at 12:51 pm

This is going to turn out like a real life version of “My Cousin Vinny” without all the charm.

I expect this will blow up in the left’s face.

taurus the judge | June 7, 2022 at 1:02 pm

Slightly different note observed reading Chad’s tweet string.

I see Tulsi popping up a lot on “conservative” things yet as of this post she is still a liberal regardless of what sounds she may make.

That’s not to say she cant take ( or isn’t on) a road trip on the Damascus highway and have a “Come to Jesus” moment. (I would like to see something like that happen)

The reality is that as of now, the best that can be said is that she is between a chameleon and a Manchurian conservative. That’s exactly the kind of “beguiling trap” the left would set for us.

Ye shall know them by their fruits.

    gonzotx in reply to taurus the judge. | June 7, 2022 at 2:39 pm

    Peole are desperate for leadership amd anyone who is a liberal also sounding sane makes conservatives get giddy, like Rogan, he is extremely lefty, extremely, yet he quote along with bill Maher all the time as “sane”.
    Calling BS. You should hear the crap Rogan says about Trump and Americans who fly the flag. Just recently by the way. Stomach turning.
    Don’t be fooled.

Well, they have to do something to try to distract from what an epic, total failure their pedophile has been.

SETUP UP LADIES AND GENTLEMEN PLACE YOUR BETS PLACE YOUR BETS!!!

Kizinger cries – payout 1 to 3
Cheney whines about MAGA – payout 1 to 2
Schiff lies – payout 10000 to 1 if he DOESN’T
Schiff snidely implies he has special secret classified documents that prove what he’s saying, but refuses to show them – payout 1 to 10
They lie about ‘4 heroic cops dying’ – payout 1 to 2

Nobody’s going to watch it.

    Olinser in reply to Othniel. | June 7, 2022 at 2:07 pm

    Not a lot of people are going to watch it, but you can rest assured that a couple cherry picked OMG YAS SLAY KWEEN moments are going to be played perpetually on Democrat media for months.

Joseph McCarthy’s HUAC star chamber committee hearings were televised in 1954. But in that case, there were committee members (such as Flanders and Symington) who were willing to stand up to McCarthy. Those televised hearings led to McCarthy’s downfall.

In the current witch hunt, Pelosi nixed all the duly appointed Republicans, and appointed two “useful idiots.” So no one on the committee is likely to stand up to Rev. Samuel Parris, who will be played by Pelosi, and Rev. John Hale, played by Schiff.

These hearings will be held under the Beria procedures, summarized by Beria’s code of justice, “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” Even in cases where they can find no crime, the person will be charged with Contempt of Congress, which doesn’t require any crime.

    Olinser in reply to OldProf2. | June 7, 2022 at 2:39 pm

    But the biggest difference is that MCCARTHY WAS RIGHT.

    Communists HAD infiltrated the government at every level. But his opponents didn’t care. They wanted McCarthy gone because he was causing too much trouble for too many rich and connected communists.

    gonzotx in reply to OldProf2. | June 7, 2022 at 2:40 pm

    McCarthy was right however

    theduchessofkitty in reply to OldProf2. | June 7, 2022 at 5:22 pm

    McCarthy was in the US Senate.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to OldProf2. | June 8, 2022 at 6:23 am

    With respect: you are doing that conflation of McCarthy’s hearings in the Senate, and the 3 ring circus HUAC hearings in the House.

theduchessofkitty | June 7, 2022 at 5:23 pm

Show trials. Just like in Stalin’s times.

Even the Nazi show trials were filmed for posterity. People condemned to death. In film. For real.

I hope they pre-empt the finals. People will love that.

It’s going to be a circus

Camperfixer | June 8, 2022 at 5:59 am

What if nobody shows up, tells these reprobates in congress to go pound sand, The Nan can’t send her gestapo and Navarro all of them. Optics.

Schiff and Kinzinger… now THERE’s a pair to draw to! Sheesh.

Keep a close eye behind the distraction of “The Schiff Show” BS on Pelosi and Schumer.
