Sometimes the free market can be a biatch. People didn't like what you were selling and showed you the door.

Ten cents per household per month.

WOW were customers being overcharged.

Replace it with 24/7 Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, Carl Sagan and readings by Maya Angelou. Call it "Mindbleach for the 21st Century."

I believe that losing your propaganda platform is probably distressing, but I still feel like a smart lich should prioritize addressing the fact that the skin he harvested from a living victim and has been wearing for the past several years seems to be decaying and falling off, threatening to expose him as an immortal undead creature who cannot stray more than a few paces from the phylactery that contains his soul.

Is it too soon to talk about cancel culture?

We only charge 10 cents per household per month. That is a great deal by any standard, given all of the amazing content our team puts out.

Yeah, but that is very heavily subsidized with money flowing in through difficult to trace channels.

F*ck you, pay me to watch your crap. And at 10 cents a month, people are getting ripped off.

I'd be twice inclined to call my cable, dish, microwave reciever companies and tell them I'd reconnect if they dropped OAN and Fox.  And more skin and on HBO

So wait a minute. I thought a couple days ago one of their hotshot news anchors requested people to dig up dirt on AT&T's president or something.  They have to make up their minds on whether they want to threaten  or beg.
 
2022-01-22 5:02:50 PM  
Wait.  Is this his ACTUAL face?  Not some parody rendering of a saggy sack of bible thumping, money loving, racist, intolerant old bones assembled into a face?

I see founder's looks have been commented upon.  I'll just say he pretty much looks like the cesspit of a network he founded.

I have a Roku and it's on their live channels, along with Newsmax, which pisses me off.

Part of the quote from this guy in the article calls out the CEO and board chair by name.  Wouldn't be surprised if that's a subtle call out to their audience that these are the people to harass.  Not mysterious names or anything, but it's a step up from just hoping your viewers do something to specifically giving them two names to focus on.  Assume those guys are getting deluged with nasty emails from the MAGA brigades, and OAN is hoping it'll be enough to make them cave and drop the matter altogether just to make it go away.

OAN is in a weird place that makes them more vulnerable to stuff like this.

Their audience includes the decrepitly old the siphoned from FOX, they aren't tech savvy enough to get OAN from anything but the TV.

If they can't get back on the TV airwaves that's most of their money pool just GONE. So watching the flailing will be interesting, I wouldn't be shocked if they tried bribes behind the scenes to get back in there.

If he waited that long to close it, it was already too late.  He just missed out on the cool special effects.

Sorry. Cut the cord with Comcast several years ago (in spite of SWMBO's protests) because I was spending $80/mo and not watching TV at all.  Moved my internet to FIOS because it's cheaper, faster and more reliable.

No more likely to watch OAN than Home Shopping Channel or any of the God-bothering channels they use to pad out their offerings.

I've got half a mind to call Spectrum and tell them I'm cancelling if they pick up OANazis.

Yeah, I primarily use Firestick and my tv's built in streaming stuff now, but remember last time I stuck in my old Roku.  Ugh. Newsmax on their list gave me the heebies.

I live 2 miles from their headquarters. It's weird knowing that they are just down the street, spewing their nonsense from the middle of San Diego of all places.
