Starve The Fox

An interesting analysis— how to get the cable television companies to rethink carrying Faux News in their basic programming services. The short version: tell them you won't take their cable modem service, or if you have one, that you'll switch to DSL service, unless they stop subsidizing the Ministry of Conservatarian Disinformation. I think the analysis is pretty reasonable, and it could work if a bigger consumer education campaign got off the ground.

Now, if they can figure out how I can get my satellite television service to consider deleting it, I will be home free... maybe if I send them a letter saying I will delay or refuse to upgrade to HDTV until they put Faux News into the "positive option" category.

Update: Fixed the link.
