Reading through the coverage of Wednesday night’s presidential debate, we were surprised to see QVC’s name come up in The New York Times. And we have a bone to pick about it.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Donald Trump’s son-in-law had been talking to investors about launching a cable network. That prompted a Times story today with the headline “Was Wednesday the final presidential debate of 2016 or the opening night of the Trump News Channel?”
“If you’re tired of biased, mainstream media reporting (otherwise known as Crooked Hillary’s super PAC), tune into my Facebook Live broadcast,” Trump posted.
“That ramshackle pregame show was like state television produced by QVC, with interviews by, of and for Mr. Trump’s supporters, cable-news-like graphics and a relentless sales pitch,” The Times wrote.
That was not a QVC-like production, folks. That was a Fox News Channel show.
