Gee, they removed some of the lamestream media and keep the real offenders (NBC, CBS and ABC) as if that is going to serve a purpose? I'm not sure what the real problem is when most people are phone zombies anyways...and a little angst is good for you, for 8 years non liberals had to suffer with the Obamanation and his corrupt looter gang...

    As someone who frequents an LA Fitness...
    1) Spend a bit more cleaning the showers!
    2) This is great because on 6 TVs you would see ONE FOX channel, and every other form of Drivel
    3) The FOX channel was not even on the other side where they had only room for 4 TVs
    4) Now if we can get them to remove ESPN!

    News channels are pretty useless as far as helping people live THEIR lives. The purpose of the news channels seems to be to get you to sit there through the commercials waiting for the "breaking news" which doesnt affect me, at least. Turn them off.

      Good assessment, I cannot handle any news channels at all even Fox gets short duration exposure.....to much hype and frustration as gasbags vent their stupidity as genius, like listening to the Pope lecture on religion after the latest priest scandal breaks...

        Fox is changing with the firing of bill o Reilly and all this politically correct sexual harassment nonsense. They have way too many liberals on their panels in an attempt to be “balanced”. I wonder if they would have felt the need to interview hitler, Stalin, or saddam in order to be “balanced” ?
        Maybe this is what we get wihen the goal is emotional manipulation to secure viewership paid for by ads. Something is definitely wrong. Maybe it’s the passive desire to know everyone else’s business instead of active desire to concentrate on one’s own business

    I served as a naval officer during the Vietnam war, and in the wardroom, where the officers dined and met, there were three strict "must obey" rules: Never discuss religion, women, or politics. I recall thinking: What else could be as interesting as those three topics? Today is seems like a good rule, in many circumstances.

    TV has become a wasteland. I cannot stand to go in the dentist office which has which has Kelly and her beefcake of the week, or Dr. Phil, who is anything, but professional, on any morning. If I had to listen to mainstream garbage news, I would quit the gym, if I needed a "group" to keep me fit. I am so happy the jX-Files is back on, Hallmark is on as the great escape into a time of values, and yes, usually FOX (although some of their dimwits are pretty liberal). I still find it amazing the libs can ignore the criminality of both Obama and Hillary, and fuss over Trump. We were too tolerant, obviously when we put up with without enough protest..

    I don’t watch tv news anymore since I’d have to pay extra to get FoxNews. Sometimes I’ll watch NewsMax on my Roku. I don’t miss it. All of them are very slanted. I grew old thinking journalists were supposed to be objective. When I was a kid my dad watched Walter Cronkite on CBS. I was too young to recognize if he was slanted or not. An objective newscast would simply report the news of the day without slanting it. But the mere choice of what is considered news is also one way of slanting things. News shows that offer opinions should offer opinions from both sides and most don’t. Or don’t let one side finish. It’s complicated. 😩

      Maybe we should spend less time on “breaking news” of what’s going on with other people, and more time concentrating on our own lives. Really, what difference does it make to my life if Puerto Rico has power or not

        That is because EVERY other person in the world is your brother, and YOU are their keeper. The Politicians have pushed this for over 100 years now, first at the barrel of a gun, then with boatloads of fiat dollars, now with angst and guilt, and non-education. Watters World used to show it up really nice...

    CNN, Fox News, et al carry "newsand opinion" 24/7. ABC, CBS and NBC never carry the new a ssmall amout of opinion and the entertainment.
    I guess its ok to have entertainment on while you workout..
