People on the right often complain that late night programming is biased against Conservatives. Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert’s show’s certainly lean to the left. And even the shows of Jimmy Fallon and James Corden will sometimes skewer the right.
So the Daily Wire decided to create a show to compete with those programs. And the person they chose to host the show is right-wing pundit Candace Owens.
Owens said of the show which is set to premiere on March 19th, “I guess the best way to describe it would be like a late-night talk show. It’s going to be funny. It’s going to be lighthearted. I think the most important adjective is it’s going to be hopeful.”
The controversial Conservative continued, “I just think that people feel lost right now in this moment, not just in America but in Western civilization, everything that’s being covered is so depressing.”
“Even the late-night talk shows, everybody is obsessed with bad news. And so it becomes very easy to insert yourself as someone that says, ‘Look, this is bad. But here is the silver lining.’ And ‘The Silver Lining’ could have been another name for the show, because that is really what we’re focused on, giving people the silver lining.”
