    Moving to PRSI in 3…2..1…..


    Isn't "distorted or inflammatory rhetoric" Fox's tagline?

    I thought it was "We distort, you comply"

    It would have been wasted ad money. "Think" is something Fox viewers don't do for themselves. As for "progress"...:rolleyes:

    They don't advertise on those arab channels that broadcast live beheadings either.

    I think this is a good decision... But, it sure seems like all of the people at tea parties could use some ipods. :cool:


    A few showed Saddam Hussein being killed. But the more reputable ones (e.g. Al Jazeera) didn't.

    Nor did they ever. However, they have abandoned Fox News BECAUSE of Glenn Beck, who is incidentally now going after Christians as not being American enough :rolleyes:. Time for Fox to pull the plug on the man.

    Well, given what they're doing on the Texas Board of Ed, he may be on to something.

    That's the point. Apple shouldn't support extremist propaganda, from either side. Though I'm not sure why they would have supported it up until now.

    Heavy..

    ----------

    Avertisers pulling the plug is a nice backdoor way to combat political extremism, and to be fair, Glenn Beck makes the news even over here across the pond like that stuff he said about Obama hating white people. GJ Apple, maybe Faux news will start to reel in their broadcasting.

    If Apple doesn't want to advertise because of network "talent" that is a misinformed blowhard, they'll need to start their own channel. I haven't seen any of the nets' performers that aren't utter fools, regardless of station or position.

    They're all nothing more than folks purposely rousing the rabble, which brings in more ad revenue (of which there's plenty to go around). I seriously doubt any of them truly believe half of what they say.

    Basically, that's why I don't watch any of them.

    This a hundred times. I get headaches if I watch CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News for more than 20 minutes.

    Fox and Beck

    Fox is the fastest growing news station out there. Beck does not need apple. I really enjoy my mac but don't care for some of the liberal issues they support. I know people that refuse to buy mac products because of some of their liberal stances.

    Beck does not need apple, neither does fox...dont worry about them...they'll be ok...
