A recent statement from C-Span said they considered the upcoming Benghazi hearings “inappropriate and inconsistent” with their public affairs programming. Of course cable news will cover it, CNN will offer their emotional anguish perspective, MSNBC will present their typical sarcastic commentary, and Fox News can always be counted on to make their usual conspiracy noises.
Without C-Span however, it was beginning to look like hardcore political viewers would be left holding their remotes. That is until Director of Programming Ray Bob “Bobber” Budnik announced earlier today that complete gavel-to-gavel coverage of the proceedings of the House Select Committee would be aired by The Fishing Channel.
“You can bet I’ll be wearing my hip waders when we get into this,” Budnik remarked, “but I think our audience will be able to relate. Fishing isn't just about catching a fish. It’s about process, it’s about technique. It’s as much about patience and persistence as it is about success. That’s why, for two years in a row, we've awarded our Hook, Line, and Sinker Award to Darryl Issa.”
This will not be the first time Budnik has tested the political waters. In 2010 he proposed a constitutional amendment making it a right for every American to own a fly rod.
