Re: Glenn Beck Announes "The Blaze" Coming by end of M

Why am I paying this nutjob's salary?!

We need Current TV on Cablevision just to balance out this addition that I will never watch (along with Fake Fox News).

I don't think it's possible to balance out Beck's crazy..

Wonder where they will put it?

Maybe in the 90's somewhere. or the 100's in the teens.

We can get this, but we can't get WLNY rolled out?

Joking or not, it can't be done. Logo is 179, while 178 is TVONE and 180 is OWN. Best bet would be in the 160's.

They're probably paying CV to carry the channel.

Questions about the sanity of Glenn Beck aside, I agree having to pay for channels you'll never watch or have issues with is frustrating (in nearly the same way as having to pay taxes to fund things you'll never use or agree with is). Sadly, I don't think its going to change unless/until we can get more choice as to individual channels we receive. I don't think that is at all likely without a huge technology change to facilitate it.

While generally one to keep posts apolitical, I have to say the knee-jerk reaction from the left never ceases to amaze me when it comes to 1st Amendment issues, particularly how opposing viewpoints are and ought to be treated. Guessing that the tin-foil crowd doesn't have to worry about the possibility of Cablevision having been taken over by the right...likely a simple business decision that you may or may not agree with. If you don't agree, don't watch, voice your opinion to Cablevision, or cancel services.

I have no problem with Glenn Beck but again I ask: where are the remaining Showtime and Starz HD Channels ??

Funny how the most vocal groups screaming at the top of their lungs to be tolerant. Are in fact the most intolerant.

If you look at the ratings, even with a 70:1 ratio of access. The one still beats out the 70. So it reasons that any lowering of the ratio has to challenged and shouted down.

I have no problems paying taxes for social security to help less fortunate.
I have a problem paying my CABLE TV BILL to help a radical extremist promote his political agenda of fear, uncertainty, doubt and gold.
