- Five out of seven new House seats go to red states after reapportionment (Daily Wire)
“Texas has gained two seats, while North Carolina, Florida, and Montana gained one seat. Oregon and Colorado also gained one seat. California, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, and West Virginia all lost one seat. … According to The Washington Post, the 2020 Census shows that the United States population grew at the ‘second-slowest pace in history.’”
“The 2021 Oscars ceremony was watched by the smallest audience the award show has ever received. On par with the performances of the Emmys and Golden Globes during the pandemic, the Academy Awards struggled to pull in mainstream viewers. Only 9.85 million viewers tuned into Sunday’s ceremony… That’s a nearly 59% drop from the 23.6 million viewers that turned on their TVs for the program last year.”
