[Rant] If I don't get the Blaze channel then I'm going to cancel

I can't help but notice the comments of people saying "if they don't get the Blaze channel, then they are going to cancel & switch to a provider that carries it".

What is so magical about this channel that will make someone cancel, where other channels (for example, Boomerang) are not available then it's no big deal. I'm pretty sure if has to do with "If my cable provider is carrying al Jazeera then they can carry this channel".

The comment I really love is the one that says "if they don't get the channel, they will also cancel their internet service". So you're plan is going from probably a 20 + Mbps service to something slower?

I noticed the same thing. Can't decide if it's spamming to raise awareness of a channel the vast majority of people will never hear of again or people just trying to troll in the Al Jazeera threads.

It's because it's Glenn Beck's channel, which inexorably means politics and probably religion are part and parcel of any discussion about it. And both of those topics are historically and particularly adept at bringing out incomparable levels of zealotry.

He cries a lot on air.

He'd make a good preacher though.
