Democrats Plan a Full Media Blowout Over Hearings on the Conspiracy to Subvert the Election of Joe Biden

From a Jack Shafer Fourth Estate column on politico.com headlined “The Democrats Plan a Full Media Blowout Over Jan. 6”:

When you turn on your television Thursday night to watch the kick-off of the January 6 congressional hearings, you won’t get the usual over-lit, droning Capitol Hill proceedings to which you’ve become accustomed. Instead, the committee intends to mount a grand media event, to pinch a phrase from scholars Daniel Dayan and Elihu Katz, a publicity extravaganza orchestrated like a product launch or political campaign to engage, dazzle and obsess the minds of the masses.
