Jeopardy! Viewers Skew This Direction Politically

What is right-wing?

The show has a “mostly ‘conservative’ audience” and its “viewers are quite a traditional bunch,” says a source quoted in this story — Katie Couric is ‘ruled out’ as permanent host of Jeopardy after asking Bill Maher ‘how are we going to deprogram the cult of Trump?’ – amid fears she has offended the show’s older audience.

That the show’s viewers skew right-wing comes as no surprise; “Individuals who identify as Republican have greater probability knowledge,” “higher verbal reasoning ability,” and “better question comprehension,” according to this peer-reviewed paper — Cognitive ability and party identity in the United States.

Archbishop Upbraids Biden

“It is deeply disturbing and tragic that any president would praise and commit to codifying a Supreme Court ruling that denies unborn children their most basic human and civil right, the right to life under the euphemistic disguise of a health service,” Archbishop Joseph Fred Naumann said — US bishops urge Biden to reject abortion rights after ‘deeply disturbing’ statement.

“Public officials are responsible for not only their personal beliefs, but also the effects of their public actions,” His Excellency continued. “Roe’s elevation of abortion to the status of a protected right and its elimination of state restrictions paved the way for the violent deaths of more than 62 million innocent unborn children and for countless women who experience the heartache of loss, abandonment, and violence.”

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Concerto for Oboe in F Major Performed by Emma Black & Netherlands Bach Society

This “is a reconstruction of an oboe concerto, based on the keyboard concerto in E major,” we learn. More:

    Oboists did fairly well out of Bach, as his oeuvre contains more than two hundred oboe solos. They often concern one or two oboes in opening choruses and arias in the cantatas. But the true solo repertoire is sparse. For example, no solo concertos for oboe have survived. There are indications that Bach did indeed compose oboe concertos, whose manuscripts and parts have been lost over the years. For a complete oboe concerto, however, we have to rely on reconstructions, such as this…

Is It Racist to Hold the C.C.P. Responsible for Covid-19?

These families don’t think so, as Sophia Yan reports — Wuhan families harassed as they fight for their day in court over China Covid cover-up.

“It’s very clear the authorities concealed the situation at the time and committed a crime that amounts to murder, one that meant my father died,” said the first to sue. Another “argued that the lockdown was illegal, and forced the public to pay for the government’s mistakes.” Another said of her brother, “I want to hold the medical staff accountable; during the last phase of his life, he wasn’t treated like a human being.”
