Meghan McCain penned an op-ed for the Daily Mail on January 6 regarding one of her favorite shows “Yellowstone.” In the lengthy piece, she gave her take on the popular series and why she doesn’t think it’s an award-winner, despite its high viewership. (For context, Succession has received both Emmy and Golden Globes noms.) “The critics ignore it but Costner’s non-woke ‘Yellowstone’ has crushed the elites’ favorite show “Succession” in the ratings because it’s the one that captures the true soul of America,” she wrote, adding that “left-leaning pundits and columnists” are under “the impression that it is the American right that lives in a silo, unencumbered by the opinions of the left.”
While she called right-leaning Fox News as “powerful,” McCain argued that “America’s media is dominated by left of center views.” To McCain, the fact that “Yellowstone” airs on the Paramount network and isn’t as highly regarded as “Succession” is because it’s right-leaning. Reactions to McCain’s piece were split, with one person commenting on the article, “LOVE YELLOWSTONE AND THE MAJORITY OF US WILL NEVER WATCH ANYTHING WOKE AND BORING KEEP IT UP GO WOKE GO BROKE.” Another argued, “So I guess the soul of America is a dysfunctional family that will do anything including murder to protect their own selfish interests.”
A few more clapped at McCain for having to “politicize” everything. In this case, it’s safe to say that people can agree to disagree.
