Posted on 02/08/2010 4:46:21 PM PST by Three if by government
I have been working out at a LA Fitness in the area noticed the other day that MSNBC and CNN has replaced Fox New.
I spoke with management they said that the corporate headquarters now directly control whats broadcast as the boxes were pulled from the gym.
He specifically asked corporate heads for one TV to air Fox his request was denied.
Every other channel are the same except for Fox News which was on 4 tv's being replaced by MSNBC and CNN.
Is this the future of America?
I have found one story back in 2009 that speaks to the same censorship of FOX.
Maybe its a gradually strategy? If anyone is having the same issue with this gym let me know.
I have been trying to get through to their upper management for comment.
If your interested here is LA Fitness headquarters on this topic below is the number.

Their TVs, their channel selection.
if so they are stuuuuupid. They are running ridiculously cheap deals right now. $15/mo approximately. They must be hurting bad for business. Alienating fans of the most popular cable channel would be pretty stupid.
they will change if member cancel. That would make me cancel my membership
My treadmill has a tv in front of it that is tuned to FOX news for the majority of my 63 minute walk. My gym ,my channel !!
Go somewhere else.
My cable company dumped Fox altogether. Their internet division blocks online FNC feeds also.
‘Their TVs, their channel selection”.
and my right to speak out against it
Write the corporate headquarters and tell them you’re done with them if they don’t change. I was in a unique position with Starbucks to be the first customer to go off on their MSNBC pilot program - directly to the executives who set it up - and a month later it was gone.
I am going to cancel thats for sure...
what’s the cable co?
Well, the one I went as of six months ago had FOX.
But if the corporation is trying to save money it could be they have gone to basic cable which where we live does not include FOX.
But the bottom line its their TV they can show what they want.
Plenty of gyms around just go some place else.
I hear ya. I go to Golds, they just took out a bank of TVs, they still get FNC but only on 1 set so you have to be in just the right place to see it.
Which cable company?
They control it through satellite from corporate headquarters.
I’ve noticed that when I stay at the various Hilton Hotels, that the Fox Channel is very high on the list, whereas the CNN, MSNBC is low and easy to find.
In my gym , we have the remotes and choose what we want to watch.
