Veterans are outraged after a KMPH FOX 26 News investigation reveals the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Fresno was caught blocking the Fox News Channel from a hospital waiting room.
Is it a mistake or something more?
Veteran Bob McLaughlin says, It was just beyond amazement because I know Fox News has been pretty heavy on any of the government things coming out, especially the Veteran Affairs Hospital scandal.

It is a key element of Communism don’tcha know?
Remember when the shortwave bands were littered with Russian jamers back in the Commie days?
You go into a DR. office or hospital waiting room in Assholecusetts..you get CNN or NPR ..period.
“You go into a DR. office or hospital waiting room in Assholecusetts..you get CNN or NPR ..period.”
Forced propaganda...How else would the Commie News Network, or National Pubic Reeducation have any listeners?
In 2002, the local Air Force Base was transmitting CNN in every waiting room including pass and ID
There was NOTHING that could be done about it
Why should there be even a TV ?
In the hugest VA hospital, I can tell you, not only is there enough funding to place and mount big screen TV in every hallway, waiting room, ER treatment room, work station, pharmacy, social services center, clinic and lobby, but in the USA, if you tried, just attempted to switch the channel away from CNN , there would be all kinds of retaliation, backlash, Lois Lerner stalking, dismissal from VA priveleges and safety
That’s since at least 2002 that I know of
‘Do not attempt to touch that dial’
Even if you choose to not have your three year old to be hearing stories of perverted sex stories, militant Islamic be headings, CNN IS in charge
Don’t kid yourself (selves)
Jane Fonda was married to Ted Turner, founder
I am never in the VA long enough to even sit down much less watch a tv show. The Baltimore VA must be one of the best in the country. After hearing all the nightmares, I am thankful I am able to use Baltimore VA.
According to some one I spoke to in line at a grocery store it is the same at passport offices. CNN was on the last time I went to the DMV also.
If you travel on business what newspaper is outside your hotel room door in the morning? And if you look carefully at the bill you are getting charged for it whether you want it or not. If not listed ask them to remove the printed value from your bill as it is buried under there somewhere.
Wow! I knew that we all got slamma hamma’d at the airport.. guess Ted is not as dumb as we think!!
Let’s ask JR...he used the Fresno, CA VA hospital recently I think. See any Fox News while you were there? BTW: I have heard from several people that the care at the Fresno VA is pretty good, as opposed to Phoenix or elsewhere...what say you Jim?
The one in Milwaukee is pretty good. Guess if we ever move, I need to more than check where the nearest one is, but how good them are!
Even in Texas in DFW when I worked at a hospital a few years ago a hospital wide policy was put forward that all tv’s were to have on CNN and not Fox as obviously too many dems and minorities took offense. Might have only been a few but we know how it goes. I would just turn the TV to Fox if I wanted to and I don’t think anyone cared. But still - infuriating for people to be told what to watch and have everyone buy into the idea that CNN is in the middle and thus more appropriate.
In venues such as hospital waiting rooms, etc., just who is the TV for?
The employees, or the patients and their families?
I have changed channels because I believe the TV is for the publics’ enjoyment/amusement. I am the public, so I change the channel.
Flew through Houston last year - Fox news & even a Fox news store.
One of the Fortune 500 companies I worked for had a giant screen TV in the cafeteria. Since us conservatives came in at 5:00 we’d change it to FOX. Then the blacks from the production floor (many of whom had been hired off the welfare roles as a condition for getting the building for $1/year) would change it to CNN. They were very vocal and in your face about their CNN preference.
Mostly what we get at the VA waiting rooms is
Divorce Court, Judge Whosis, or talk shows going
on about liver bile and how to avoid wrinkles.
I would prefer Fox but I’d take Cnn.
