Heidi Harris Show Podcast #21: NBC Refuses to Adapt to Consumers

If NBC had half a brain, they would make the 2018 Olympics far easier to access. I downloaded the NBC Sports app, thinking it would help. But the APP is useless, because they want you to have a CABLE provider to access their Olympics coverage. With all the millions of cord cutters, (including me), they are losing millions of eyes, yet again.

The most basic rule of marketing is to make it as easy to use your product as possible. The days of everyone waiting 8 hours after an event to watch truncated prime time coverage of ANY sport, (when we already know the results) are OVER. Sorry Katie – no one cares.

Anyone under 40 never had to wait to watch cartoons or anything else as a child. They popped a VHS or DVD in whenever they wanted to see something. They don’t even comprehend “prime time” TV as our parents defined it.

And of course NBC will blame the time difference for the lack of viewership. You need to play by MY rules as a consumer or lose me.

NBC should hire some 30 year-olds to program the network. THEY understand how real people consume media these days.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #20: When Management Doesn’t Have Your Back (Megyn Kelly)

Megyn Kelly is an example of many things, the main one being that the people who hired her didn’t understand the changing dynamics of her fan base, and now want to blame HER for what’s happening to her show. THEY should have known that the people on the right no longer like her, the left never accepted her, and those are the people watching daytime TV! If the show goes down in flames, bully on THEM.

What she asked Jane Fonda months ago about plastic surgery was fair, and so was her response to Jane’s outrage, but now NBC execs are hanging Megyn out to dry, because they’re afraid of Jane Fonda!

The NBC execs have blown this again. Remember how much they paid Conan O’Brien to go away? I’ll remind you – $40 million.

Score one for the GOP (for a change). Dems collapse like cheap tents!

For ONCE the Senate Republicans played hardball, stood up to the left and got them to back down on the government shutdown with no assurances of anything in return. It’s a HUGE win for the GOP, because they are usually back on their heels, on the defensive. Trump gave them the courage they seemed to have lost in the past, by blaming the government shutdown on Senator Schumer.

Now the Dems are fighting among themselves. They’ve not won the war, but the skirmish goes to the GOP! Well done, Trump administration!

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #17: What is a Conservative?

The “culture war” starts in your home, and if you’re off in DC or caught up in local politics instead of raising your KIDS, you’ve been swallowed up by the cultural stream. You’re just another dead fish, going with the flow. Your EGO says you’re ‘fighting for your kids’ future’, but in reality YOU are the greatest influence on your kids’ future. What happens in YOUR house is more important than what happens in the White House.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #16: Trump’s health is better than the left would prefer.

Trump’s health is fine. Sorry, libs, and CA is worried about the Justice Department’s request to have the Census Department ask about legal status of residents in 2020. Can’t wait to see what it will cost them in Federal funding and Congressional seats when we see the REAL numbers.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #15: S**thole countries? Yes, they exist.

President Trump is in trouble again, for saying (according to some in an immigration meeting) that some countries are s**tholes. Yes, some are, and we all know it. Here’s how I define them.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #14: Can Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions really do anything to stop the marijuana industry?

Hasn’t that marijuana horse already left the barn? My guest, Luke Niforatos, from SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana), applauds Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to rescind the so called Cole Memo, and doesn’t think it’s too late to stop the green wave washing across the country.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #13: Bundy charges dismissed! Now what?

The Bundy Bunkerville Standoff Trials(s) in TWO states were a disaster and a waste of our tax dollars. The Federal prosecutors tried to make an example out of these people and failed miserably. The judge finally decided the prosecutorial mistakes were too egregious to continue.

I still don’t agree with their supporters’ tactics, but come on! You guys had your chance to put them away and you blew it. My guest, author and columnist John L. Smith, was IN the courtroom for the proceedings. He has some interesting nuggets about the case.

Heidi Harris Show podcast #12: Bannon v Trump

This whole battle between Steve Bannon and Trump is a dream for the lefties, and a nightmare for…Bannon. The left will love the new book Bannon contributed to, but frankly, I don’t have time for anyone’s book designed purely to bring someone down.
