I have received a number of complaints over actions by Comcast TV. Apparently they are only providing CNN and Fox news in their basic package. The recent move of MSNBC to digital has created great concern on the part of Democrats that the news is slanted toward a more conservative message.
Here is the message:
In the past few days, Comcast TV has moved MSNBC to the Digital line up.
What seems strange to me is the fact the the 2008 Democratic National Convention
is coming to Denver and that Colorado is going to be an important state in the
next election. MSNBC is a moderate left National News channel that features
informative interviews on such programs a Hardball, Countdown and
Scarborough.This channel is probably has a high percent of Democratic viewers.
FOX News has a high percent of Right Wing Republican Viewers but the FOX channel
remains on the less costly lineup. My question is why are Democrats having to
pay more to view their prefered programming (forced to buy the Digital upgrade)
and FOX viewers are not?
Anyone who has additional comments should call or email Comcast and let them know what they think.
