The fact that someone would pay 9 bucks for a device that blocks a channel that he could simply "not watch" amazes me and makes me wonder if perhaps we did descend from primates.
It is SO scary to me that there are people living in this world that have such small brains. Doesn't evolution filter people like this out?

The "Fox Blocker" is a little cable filter that blocks the Fox channel. The creator's justification for creating this is that Fox has a conservative journalistic bias and it is more opinion than news. As of March 26th, the creator has sold a little over 100 pieces.
It's not that Sam Kimery objects to the views expressed on Fox News. The creator of the "Fox Blocker" contends the channel is not news at all. Kimery figures he's sold about 100 of the little silver bits of metal that screw into the back of most televisions, allowing people to filter Fox News from their sets, since its August debut.
The Tulsa, Okla., resident also has received thousands of e-mails, both angry and complimentary — as well as a few death threats.
"Apparently the making of terroristic threats against those who don't share your views is a high art form among a certain core audience," said Kimery, 45.

I am shocked that this has been "invented". This could seriously affect fox and its income. I will not buy it but for those of you who do, it's $8.95 and it is available online. This is the official site of the “Fox Blocker”: www.foxblocker.com:81...
Who would like to buy one and why?
