Should ABC,  Disney (Jr.), and all the ESPNs all be banned because the parent company Disney was a partial owner of Viewers Choice, which finances several adult entertainment films?

 

If you don't like it don't watch it.  By the way as stated above in the NYC market Al Jezeera is a secoundary channel from the RNN local channel.  Verizon carries it on channel 481

Hi everyone,


I just want to remind you all that this is not the place to discuss politics.  Please keep your discussions on topic.

 

Thanks,

I'm hopeful that the numbers of viewers (that there are very few) will lead you to remove this station.  Everyone has the right to air their opinion, but in this particular case, Al-Jazeera has been openly supportive of terrorist organizations.  It remains to be seen what changes they will make to Current but if Verizon is looking to keep channels that viewers actually watch I think this will disappear due to lack of viewership.

There seem to be a few different threads about this same topic.

Are you kidding me?  I can't stand fox news, but I wouldn't try to get my TV provider to remove it from my package - I simply won't watch it.

I also hate fox news and simply removed it as a channel i receive on my tivo,so it never shows up in my guide or goes to fox when i scroll through my channels,for example when i'm changing channels and i'm on channel 617 my tivo will automaticaly bypass channel 618 (fox news) and go to the next number 619 weather channel,YOU can do that with any channel you dont want on tivo,but i dont know if the verizon fios box canalso do this since i dont have one.

Please boycott Verizon if they add Al Jazeera to their tv channel line up. We cannot have this garbage come to America and be successful

I'll boycott you instead. Nothing more UN-American than censorship.

 

No chance in hell do I leave Verizon if they keep Al Jazeera, just like no chance in hell do I leave Verizon if they add the Blaze.

Is Al Jazeera "Fair & Balanced?" you decide:

 

"As Al Jazeera America gears up for its launch in America, twenty-two of the network’s Arabic language staffers resigned this week saying that the network’s management had instructed them to provide coverage of the recent events in Egypt to favor the Muslim Brotherhood."

A "News" Agency promoting a specific party/point of view!!!! Unheard of!!!!!!! MSNBC promotes far left Liberal views, Fox promotes Conservative views and the Blaze promotes far-right wing radical Conservative views. So why are they any different?
