The recent 60 Minutes interview with Marjorie Taylor Greene was a flop in ratings. But the truth is, her message of conservative values resonates with millions of Americans who feel like their voices are not being heard.
Marjorie Taylor Greene has been a champion for the conservative movement since she was elected to Congress in 2020. She has been an outspoken advocate for gun rights, religious freedom, and traditional family values. Her unwavering commitment to these principles has earned her both praise and criticism from both sides of the aisle.
New York Post reports. “60 Minutes”‘ controversial interview with Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who shocked correspondent Lesley Stahl by referring to Democrats as “kiddie lovers,” was a ratings disappointment.
Its second-lowest audience in its 55th season drew just 6.6 million viewers on Sunday evening.
According to TVLine, Sunday’s interview had just a 0.3 rating in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 demographic.
As a result, unlike previous weeks, “60 Minutes” did not have the luxury of sports programming leading into the 7 p.m. hour on Sunday
In spite of the slippage, “60 Minutes” continued to dominate Sunday primetime, outdrawing rivals including NBC’s Magnum PI and ABC’s American Idol.
60 Minutes did provide a solid lead-in to the CMT Music Awards, which attracted 5.7 million viewers.
Fox News reports, in response to a federal judge’s temporary halt to Tennessee’s strict ban on adult cabaret performances in public places, Kelsea Ballerini took a shot at the law.
As she performed her 2022 hit “If You Go Down (I’m Going Down Too)” with “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alumni Kennedy Davenport, Manila Luzon, Jan Sport and Olivia Lux, the country singer appeared to show solidarity with the drag community at the CMT Music Awards Sunday night.
Ballerini was surrounded by colorful mid-century outfits worn by the queens.
Later that evening Ballerini tweeted a shoutout to them with a photo from the performance, writing, “if you go down, i’m going down too,” followed by a pride flag emoji..
Marjorie Taylor Greene’s commitment to conservative values is inspiring many Americans who feel like their voices are not being heard by politicians in Washington D.C.. Her willingness to stand up for what she believes in despite criticism from both sides of the aisle is admirable and should be commended. With more people like Marjorie Taylor Greene speaking out on important issues facing our nation today, we can be sure that American ideals will never fade into the background, as long as we have those who are willing to speak truth to power.
