The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it. ― George Orwell
If you watched cable news Sunday afternoon, you saw some very different opinions when Attorney General William Barr released a summary of the Mueller report to key members of Congress.
Fox News was saying the summary was historical and basically cheering about it, while MSNBC was saying there needs to be a full release of the Mueller report and some of their people were almost crying. As for CNN, Wolf Blitzer took the helm and directed coverage that was pretty vanilla.
That’s cable news in 2019.
Those who lean to the right are cheering about Barr’s summary and saying that President Trump is exonerated. Those on the left are saying that the full report needs to be made public and that there will be more hearings in Congress and that Trump is not exonerated.
To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world. ― Dr. Seuss
Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm and humor.
This week’s topics include Mega Millions jackpot, “Go Fund Me” for the wall update, Montana Millionaire lottery, unemployment, Christmas and social media, Donald Trump’s 2018 in numbers, most admired man and woman for 2018, the partial federal government shutdown, pay increases for our troops fact check, and much more!
All the world’s indeed a stage And we are merely players Performers and portrayers Each another’s audience Outside the gilded cage

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!
If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.
Topics that I am providing commentary about today include Jon Tester/Steve Daines taking/getting credit, Rosendale & life, migrant children – are you kidding me, the IG & Comey, The Fourth Estate, and One More Thing!
