Here in St Utah, it's all Fox, all the time. Post Office, Bank, Restaurants, and probably all our sheepo,er,um nice neighbors. You knew that one of Cheney's traveling rules is any hotel he stays at must have the TV pre-set to Fox, so he doesn't turn it on & accidentally see something else? ~~ D.K.

More mind-candy for the masses, AZ. Keeps them all under control.

The pope of Fox News died today. They are all in mourning over there.

TV is the 'opium of the people', it took the place of religion a long time ago. With TV you no longer have to think, a friend described it once as 'chewing gum for the eyes'. It fills an empty space, usually the one between the ears ;-)

I don't look at the TV for weeks and then when I do, I realise that I haven't missed anything!

But we need TV. How else will we know how to think?

I rarely turn on the Tv, and when I do, I flip channels constantly. There is nothing interesting on.

The insane christian channel

Ha, ha, ha.

We have a TV but haven't got around to getting channels.

Nothing beats "democracy now."

So much for the "liberal media", ay?

By the way, my word verification for this comment is "oooka". I like that! Can I use it every time? 8^)

I notice this in public places and wonder the same thing.
