Skip to comments.Democratic gym patron declares war on Fox News

Ann Geddes doesn't want a "fair and balanced" workout. But the 49-year-old worker for a nonprofit agency is having no luck getting the channel changed in front of her favorite rowing machine at a Columbia gym.
The television happens to be tuned permanently to Fox News. Geddes, a liberal Democrat and former legislative aide to a Howard County delegate, said she can't stomach the conservative lineup that appears nightly as she gets her exercise. Even though the sound is off, the words scrolling across the bottom of the screen infuriate her.

Funny, that’s how I feel when I’m forced to watch CNN in the Atlanta (and just about any other) airport.
Perhaps she’s angry because can’t read...........
Give her a real row boat.
With holes in it.
I feel the same way when I see ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, etc.
Columbia, nonprofit...why doesn’t she take a netbook computer with her so she can read the NYT 24/7?
Another humorless, perspectiveless, infantile liberal.
You beat me to it (every airport but Atlanta, at least).
Find another gym. Case closed.
Bite me, Anne Geddes.
Maybe there shoid be a separate exercise room for liberals- showing endless loops of Teletubbies. For me torture is 3 hours stuck in an airport with CNN.
Wifey and I recently spent almost five weeks just driving around the country......I’d estimate that only just over half of the hotel/motel channel lineup had FOX - but 100% had CNN.
“Geddes, a liberal Democrat and former legislative aide to a Howard County delegate, said she can’t stomach the conservative lineup that appears nightly as she gets her exercise.”
Now she knows how WE feel with CNN pumped in everywhere..... lol!
She’s really going to be hot if she starts to read the unsympathetic commentary accompanying the story online. The newspaper gets reamed too for featuring this as “news”
Ann Geddes —> unstable...
Truth hurts in an industry of lies.
It looks like CNN really seized the market in the hotel and travel industry. But I bet the one travelers watch voluntarily is Fox!
If she can focus that much energy on the television, she isn’t working hard enough on the rower. I do not understand why people feel they need the visual distraction of a TV or magazine when they’re exercising. Focus on your fricking workout for 45 minutes and you might actually start seeing some results...
