CNN Airport Overload; FOX Where Are You?

Ever been to an airport and had to spend some time in the waiting area?

Ever traveled on a cruise ship or a riverboat, and tuned in to catch a little news?

Ever stay in a hotel, particularly in a foreign country, and settle in to see what’s happening in the world on the TV? 

What all those places have in common is CNN. The fakest of the fake news channels is the only news source you will get to watch that is an American-based station, covering American News.

My curiosity was piqued, so I asked places why they have CNN instead of Fox News when Fox has much higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC combined. CNN has made contracts to have their stations play in airports, allowing the airport to advertise for themselves on the stations in each airport. The airports have said that they sign multi-year contracts with CNN and they receive TV equipment and money for allowing them to have exclusive rights to show their cable news to the airport audience. The news is a bit different than what you’d see at home. For example, they don’t show news about airplane crashes. If you’ve ever watched it, it is still Anti-Trump and full of bias and inaccuracies.

When I am on a cruise ship, a riverboat, or in a hotel, foreign or American, that shows only CNN, I think of all of the minds listening to the malarkey that is being said, and the vitriol toward our President that they spew 24/7.

News affects people. It affects their opinions, and their attitudes and their behaviors in many instances. News is not benign. CNN knows it.

Think of the millions of people that fly. They pass through airports, they are somewhat of a captive audience, and they hear CNN. People go to bars and restaurants, and they get CNN.

Bartenders have told me lots of people ask for the channel to be changed to Fox News, but they are not allowed to or can’t even get it. It took the longest time before I could get it in most hotels in the US, but definitely not internationally still.

So my question to FOX NEWS is, where are you? If we all agree that news shapes opinion and that news is a very powerful and important tool to help shape those opinions, why is Fox not in the game?

If Fox believes in what they do, and if they believe that their message is a better, more honest, more patriotic message than their competitors, they need to be in all of the venues they can be in.

As evidenced by the ratings, Fox is the preference of Americans for cable news. They have a more conservative message, they are more patriotic and support (for the most part) our President, our police, and our military. Their motto is “fair and balanced news”.

In a national climate where there is so much dissension, and in a world climate where our allies and enemies devour news from America, it would be a powerful tool for conservatives to be able to spread our voices to people that may not normally tune in to Fox due to their political bias or lack of time, or any other reason. To be able to touch millions of people with a more conservative message, a more honest version of American news is an opportunity that Fox should be totally invested in and do whatever it takes to get those contracts in their own hands instead of CNN’s.

Imagine the impact on the tone of our discourse if the news had less vitriol towards our President. What they hear on European channels affects European thought about America. Let’s put our best message forward to the world, not our worst.

Fox, we need your message. Let’s change what we can change in the political climate and the fake news campaigns and give more people a chance to hear a better network than CNN when they travel.

It can only help Fox’s ratings, and more importantly, it can help uninformed voters and influencers to hear more honest news reporting done without the extreme liberal and socialistic slant. It may make the world a tiny bit kinder and more tolerant. Fox, what are you waiting for?

Deceptions of Government and Corporate Elite Threaten America

Deceptions of Government and Corporate Elite Threaten America

Today’s pervasive government and corporate corruption will result in more amorality among the public. When a country that is historically moral, tolerates leaders in the political and business worlds who are proven to be chronic liars, a previously honest general population begins to feel free to adopt deceptive practices as well, resulting in corruption becoming dominant in America…

As the Dismantling of America Continues… Judgment Is Coming, but for Whom?

The year is 2022, and you can be sure judgment is coming. The curse of deception is now judging all those who have spurned our God-given guidelines for holy living. The powers that be seem in their own eyes just and good, when in fact, they are wretched and oppressive. But a time of renewal may also be at hand because an ever-expanding army of righteous soldiers are returning to our roots…

Beyond the Fireworks & Bar-B-Ques… America’s Military Vets Take Note

No matter how much money and covert influence our enemies try to pump into America, there are millions of American veterans who once took an oath to protect and defend America that has no expiration date. You can push them so far, and eventually, you’ll reach the point where they push back. They’ve remained quietly on the sidelines, for now, observing and taking note of…

America Returns to the Days of King George

America Returns to the Days of King George

It seems the American people have not learned from their history. Rather we have reverted to a state of servitude similar to the colonies in 1776. I wonder if, when those 56 men pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor in support of the Declaration of Independence, they ever conceived that not only would the American people return to a life of dependence, but that we would do so willingly…

The Most Patriotic and Accomplished President in Modern Times

The only president who – despite the most maligning, deceitful, and aggressive media against him 24/7/365 x 5 years – delivered what he promised the American people if elected. The least unemployed Americans in over 50 years. Made America’s energy, oil, and gas independent of oil cartels for the first time ever. In fact, he made the USA a premier exporter, helping make the price of petrol…

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Peter McCullough and Malcolm Out Loud – The outrage regarding the FDA and CDC approving and promoting the vaccines to our youngest is being heard from coast to coast.

Florida’s Gov Ron DeSantis & Lawmakers Bring 145 New Laws Into Effect July 1

It’s been noted that throughout the governorship of Ron DeSantis during the health crisis of COVID-19, thousands of Americans have relocated from all across the nation to reside in Florida because of the conservative God and Country values that DeSantis stands for. The Florida governor signed 269 bills in the year 2022, 11 of those measures were vetoed and 145 are new laws taking effect…

Why Roe v. Wade Will NOT Impact the Election

The media is trying very hard to turn the upcoming midterm elections into a referendum on abortion…A large segment of the left is once again losing its mind and proving to independent voters what independent voters were already figuring out – that the political left is led by a radicalized group of thugs who want to burn down our nation and make us live under an ultra-authoritarian communist tyranny…
