This just seems wrong. Is this the new policy?

From a purely business perspective, they should probably put it on a channel that is at least somewhat less political. I imagine conservatives would have the same response if the lounge was playing Rachel Maddow when they walked in.

Bottom line is that the TV's should be on any one of the news channels: CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, etc. I prefer Fox, but nothing is more absurd than having some gossip show that only appeals to the staff, not the customer base. DEN is a perfect example of what not to do, as I never see any of the news channels on, instead it's ABC's afternoon programming...

cnn seems like a fair choice. fox "news" is purely propaganda. what if it was tuned to the united socialist workers news? would that be good?

Fox is too far one way, MSNBC is too far the other way. If either of those are on I just tune out. Can't stand the drivel on either of those stations. They don't seem to know how to say anything except how bad the other side is doing. I am purely middle of the road.

I suppose they should change the Fox News Channel Store at IAH as well?

I am NO fan of Fox News but this may be the least substantive threads I've seen in some time. Just ask to have the channel changed and I'm confident they'll do it unless someone really wanted Fox News

This is going to be sent to OMNI faster than can you say Iluv2fly.

I think remotes should be left in the tv rooms.

I'd say more like 90/10%.

This is an issue that has come up in the past as well. PMUA also had Fox on in the RCCs at times. It's not new, but choice of TV stations in the club can make for interesting marketing discussion.

This thread will be moved or closed quite quickly if the conversation degrades to insults and political discussions. I've removed one post. Let's keep the conversation respectful.
