Gov. John Kasich (“R”-Ohio) is shopping for contracts with leftist cable news networks for when his tenure in office comes to a merciful end.
“Kasich has signaled to close advisors and some donors that he is looking to sign with either CNN or MSNBC as he finishes his two-term tenure as Ohio’s governor, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, including two who have been close to the governor since his 2016 presidential run,” CNBC reports.
Kasich, a staunch member of the #NeverTrump crowd, spent less time governing over the past two years than bashing President Donald J. Trump. Kasich is a pro-amnesty “Republican” whose biggest beef with Trump is that Trump wants to secure the southern border. Monday is his last day in office as governor of the Buckeye State.
Kasich has signed with United Talent Agency, who will assist him in finding a new gig. He has frequently appeared on CNN, though in the early 2000’s he hosted a show on Fox News, and even used to fill in for former cable news titan Bill O’Reilly.
“We’re thrilled to work with Governor Kasich as he looks to the future by bringing his unique experience, wisdom and perspective to an even wider array of audiences,” the agency reportedly said.
The two-term governor is reportedly still considering a 2020 presidential bid. One person close to Kasich reportedly said that his interest in a television job does not mean that he has given up is presidential aspirations.
“Very seriously. I’m considering it,” Kasich told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in November. “These are earnest conversations that go on virtually every day with some of my friends, with my family.”
He has often touted the potential for a third-party ticket to reach voters who are “in the middle” of the political spectrum, as if no one has ever had that idea before. Kasich has tried to ride the fence his entire political career, which mostly adds up to selling out his Republican constituency to the political left in the name of “compromise.” The Democrats never seem to return that favor.
“Let’s just say that Donald Trump is nominated and Elizabeth Warren is nominated, and you have this ocean of people who sit in the middle,” he told ABC. “Is there a legitimate opportunity for a third party, bipartisan kind of ticket to be able to – to score a victory or to have a profound impact on the future of American politics?”
Kasich is a twice-failed presidential candidate, having run in 2000 an 2016. Perhaps a third failure will solidify for him the fact that weakness is no longer standard operating procedure for the GOP.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins
Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.
Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.
Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.
Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.
Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.
It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.
Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
