Being white is bad?

I was thinking the same thing. I don't want to get into a political discussion (I stay away from those, even with my friends and my coworkers, considering it is such a personal thing)...

However, I do need to speak up here and wonder why "white" was put in front of a list of negative character traits, such as "fear-mongering" and "hate-fueled"? That makes it sound as if being born white and into a comfortable economic situation automatically makes that white person a hateful racist.

That's as wrong as saying "black inner city criminals", as if being a black person born in an urban environment automatically means they will act like criminals.

Granted, there is fear-mongering that is done on FOX news. However, it seems that describing it as a "white, privileged, fear-mongering, hate-fueled propaganda show" is casting people in a bad light for simply for "being white".

The HD versions of both Fox News and CNN are still out here in Maryland BUT the Standard Definition versions are still viewable.

Woke up this morning, turned the channel to CNN and received a display saying it wasn't part of our package. I went ahead and hit the reset button on our box and now I'm not getting a signal. Called Direct TV about the problem, they said they're having some difficulties with some channels.

This sure seems coincidental. All the talk about media bias and attacks about CNN and Fox not being fair to Trump seems like there could be a possible connection. Why were two news channels affected, and why did it happen over night? It's been 5 hours now and I'm still without a signal. Strange.

Maybe someone with a bit of knowledge about how to take them down got tired, sick to death, of all the slime being broadcast about both sides and decided to give us a day off from the blather? Will the world end if both are off the air for 24 hours?
Mine won't because I don't watch cable tv, haven't had it in over 20 years. The crows in my yard are more entertaining and intelligent.

On the way home from work I listen to Fox News on SirusXM. A few times this week it has been interrupted or crossed with what sounds like music from maybe another station. I've never had this happen with SirusXM but I can see how it could happen. Day before yesterday I'm watching Fox News on TV, at home, and the same thing happened again. I thought this was weird because it was on TV, not the radio.

You hadn't gotten the memo ?

Being White is bad, being male is bad and being of the mind Government should be smaller and less intrusive is also bad....

But, I must admit confusion... Because...

Racism is also bad.. Sexism is also bad.. And being "yourself" is good..

Perhaps it's a matter who is practicing them ?

Here in Maryland, the Standard Definition channel for Fox News just went dark. There is no programming at all.
The Standard Definition channel for CNN just switched to NBC GOLF.

What's going on here? Has to be a satellite hack.

Standard Def. channels are back to normal but HD channels are still out.

Just do the math.

Who owns DirectTV?

AT&T owns Direct TV


Who owns CNN?

Time Warner owns CNN


Who wants to merge into one massive company?

AT&T and Time Warner

Hillary Clinton will allow the merger to happen so they NEED for her to win the election, hence why they are blocking Fox News which is one of the only news channels actually talking about Wikileaks, hence why CNN has done so much to help Clinton.

They can't have the people know about the Clinton cartel, so they are controlling information. The merger will only make things worse in the future fyi.

Why would ATT/DTV block Pro-Clinton CNN if they want Hillary to win and their deal to go through?

Just as Fox and Friends was supposed to begin the last two days in Houston Texas, the channel is suddenly replaced with the Fusion channel. If you switch to the Fusion channel, you will find that the channels have been swapped. Then they switch to a "experiencing technical difficulties" screen.

Direct TV is censoring Fox News morning show Fox & Friends?

It doesnt appear to be happening to any other channel. I find it odd that only a highly rated conservative morning talk show would be affected days leading up to the election. Does anyone have any other information?


Same here in Charlottesville, VA.

The message says "I have not purchased this channel".

Are you flocking kidding me?!?!

And I rarely watch Fox News Channel...although they do have some good stuff there from time to time.

Probably just a glitch but I *so* hate coincidences...

ETA - they are definitely having issues.
Tried to switch to CNN and it's a golf tournament - the Dominion Charity Classic...really?!?...lmao

Substitute "conservative morning talk show" for "white, privileged, fear-mongering, hate-fuelled propaganda show", and you'd be correct. a reply to: liveandletlive

Welcome to your first day at ATS. What a wonderful time for you to join us. Very fortuitous for you.

Sorry Mkennel I somehow ended up quoting you incorrectly.

Fox was the only one affected here. All the other channels worked fine. I thought it was suspicious when it happened yesterday. It went off right as Fox and Friends was starting and wasn't fixed until the show was almost over. Then when it happened again this morning I knew something was up. I wasn't aware that CNN was affected as well. When I switched to CNN they were actually saying negative things about Clinton, which surprised me. Regardless of who it was or why, it definitely wasn't an accident in my opinion.

If you expect Government to assist you are delusional. They will only aid.

That's ok. Perhaps you heard about a little grassroots organization called the American revolution???
