Drop your subscriptions to pay tv, whether it be cable, satellite, or digital.
DEFUND THE LEFT.
You pay for Time-Lies-Warner-Turner-CNN and Viacommie-SeeBS-MTV-ComedyCentral-BET-LOGO-Nickelodeon whether you watch them or not.
I might suggest a small idea, find the most hyped up products of the most serious MSM channels and make a daily list to boycott those items, find out what the most expensive ads are and counter them.
However I also recommend buying any device that allows a user to skip commercials, I use my PVR of my Dishnetwork a lot and we very rarely watch anything live.
I like it.
We all have network affiliates in our cities. We should be in front of them every day protesting.
This problem involves the worldwide MSM, and not just the U.S. MSM and for a very long time.
File a complaint with the FCC that these leftie channels are not performing their duties as descriped in their license. Or get rid of the FCC.
Also, when 17 Feb comes and the over-the-air TV goes black, the left won’t be able to control the useful idiots. That’s one reason the government is paying for the convertor boxes.
I would also suggest a boycott of General Electric products. I wish our Republicans in Congress would do everything they can to stop General Electric government contracts.
I don’t agree.
If you get your American news from the British media (BBC, The Telegraph, The Globe, The Times and The Sun) and Australian media (The Age, SMH, The Australian) and supplement with (believe it or not) Pravda (yes, you still need a to read it with a filter to cull out bits where it’s being Putin’s tame media outlet, but these are fewer than you might think when it’s covering matters not directly involving Russia) you can get a pretty good, objective reporting of events.
For world news, the British and Australian media read along with AFP, will do nicely.
We dumped satellite and TV almost a year ago.
Even my formerly TV-addicted wife now admits our home is happier, more peaceful, and more productive without the Scream Box. And when something comes along that we actually want to see, we watch it on the Web or via DVD.
Having a TV is like subscribing to Pravda at the height of Stalin’s reign. Get rid of it. You’ll be glad you did.
