The Dark Secret About Why Dish Network May Have Dumped Fox News

DISH Network and Fox News have been at odds after DISH removed FNC from their channel line up December 20th. Both organizations have been blaming the other, with Fox News releasing an ad accusing DISH of censorship. DISH blames the blackout on contract complications.

Either way, it stinks for the 14 million DISH subscribers. (At least, the conservative ones.) MRC’s Dan Joseph seems to think it’s more than just a “contract problem.” As it turns out, Dish Network’s founder and chairman Charles Ergen is a huge donor to the Democratic Party and has a history of pushing his own political agenda.

From MRC via IJReview:

According to Open Secrets, Ergen donated a total of $64,000 to the Democratic Senatorial campaign Committee in 2014.

In the 2014 cycle Ergen gave almost exclusively to Democratic candidates particularly to endangered Senate Democrats including Kay Hagen(NC), Mark Pryor (ARK.), Mark Warner (Va) and Mark Begich (Alaska).

Of course, Mr. Ergen’s generosity to the Democratic Party in the last cycle does not necessarily mean that he is targeting Fox News due to a disagreement with the network’s content.

But, Ergen may have a history of abusing his position of power to promote his political preferences.

This isn’t the first time Ergen has run into trouble. In 2012, company executives filed a federal complaint against him, arguing that he used intimidation tactics to bully them into donating to his preferred candidates. If that’s any testament to the kind of man he is, it wouldn’t be a stretch to assume that similar things could be happening with the DISH and FNC relationship.

The claim was filed by an unnamed company insider who accused Ergen of “forcing” Dish Network’s Chief Operating Officer Bernard Han to donate to a Democratic Party candidate in the 2009/2010 election cycle.


The complaint also claimed that Han was “encouraged” to attend Democratic functions and fundraisers and that other Dish employees were strong-armed by Ergen in a similar way.

What do you think? Is it just a coincidence?

That didn’t take long: Fox News scores HUGE victory over Dish Network

Over the last few weeks, Fox News has been in a major contract dispute with Dish Network, one that eventually saw the satellite cable provider drop the news outlet from it’s programming packages.

As it turns out, this was a HUGE mistake. We’re talking a bad move of epic, possibly even biblical proportions because subscribers decided to let Dish Network know in no uncertain terms they weren’t happy with the decision.


Well, thanks to the tactics from Fox News and the support of viewers, Dish has finally reached an agreement to put the channel back on the air, and it looks like the deal for Fox is a sweet one.

From Mad World News:

Fox News Insider reports that the three-week long war with Dish Network, which has been more of a mudslinging competition than it has contract negotiation, has finally come to an end with Fox as the victor and Dish being put in their place. The two sides finally came to terms with a multi-year agreement for carriage of the Fox News network and its sister station, Fox Business Network, which will now be available to subscribers who have qualifying programming packages.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Fox made out much better in the deal than Dish. The two Fox networks will appear side-by-side on the channel lineup, giving Fox Business a much better shot at being watched. Fox was also given a 50 percent increase in its rate per subscriber, up from $.75 to $1.50 each.

The lopsided agreement is likely because of the nearly instant revenue loss Dish experienced when 90,000 subscribers canceled their service after Dish announced it was dropping Fox with another 350,000 sending strongly worded emails to the cable provider, according to the Conservative Tribune.

Boom shakalaka!

I bet that really burns the biscuits of every liberal across the nation who was hoping Fox News would take a serious dive in ratings as a result of the contract dispute.

Well, all I can say to those individuals is the following:

How do you like THEM apples!

The one thing liberals hate most–capitalism–is what made this deal happen. A vast majority of subscribers weren’t happy with Dish and used their dollars to make that point clear.

Rather than risk losing a huge chunk of profit, the satellite cable company decided to to take a “softer” approach toward the negotiations and give Fox more of what they wanted.

Notice the government wasn’t needed to come in and make sure things were done “fairly.”

When the free market is left to itself, it’s capable of doing all sorts of magical things.

Sarah Palin Calls Lena Dunham A 'Pedophile,' Blasts Media Over Treatment Of Duggars
The Huffington Post | By Ed Mazza

ASSOCIATED PRESS
Sarah Palin is lashing out at the media for how it has covered the sexual abuse revelations about "19 Kids And Counting" star Josh Duggar while giving "Girls" star Lena Dunham a free pass.

Writing on her Facebook page, Palin compared the media storm over Duggar, whose parents confirmed on Fox News this week that he had “improperly touched" some of his sisters when he was a teenager, to that of Dunham, who wrote in her book "Not That Kind of Girl" that, as a 7-year-old child, she gave candy to her 1-year-old sister in exchange for kisses and a look at her vagina.


"I’m not an apologist for any sexual predator, but I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics," Palin wrote. "Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham's sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she's rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family."


The former Alaska governor's post began with an all-caps rant targeted at Dunham:

"HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE'S SEXUAL 'EXPERIMENTS' AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU"
Palin, who was the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, slammed
"(t)he media's hell-bent mission to go after the entire Duggar family for one member’s wrongdoing, while giving a total pass to perverted actions of someone like Lena Dunham -- or any other leftwinger celeb caught doing awful things."


Read her full post below:

The intolerant left's destructive personal intrusions and narrow-mindedness applied to their chosen targets are bad enough, but their double standards are beyond the pale.
I’m not defending the Duggar boy's obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago. The main victim in any story like this isn't the perpetrator, it's the innocent ones so harmfully affected. I’m not an apologist for any sexual predator, but I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics. Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham's sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she's rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family.
The Duggar debate needs to shift from solely the boy's obvious wrongdoing when he was 14 years old to now include:
1) The shocking, unethical leak of a private, legally protected counseling document by a politically motivated law enforcement official. Media - time to go after her or him for illegalities and for destroying the public's trust in law enforcement.
2) The media's hell-bent mission to go after the entire Duggar family for one member’s wrongdoing, while giving a total pass to perverted actions of someone like Lena Dunham - or any other leftwinger celeb caught doing awful things. Remember reports of the pedophile billionaire our former democrat president has been friends with and hung out with on the pedophile's "orgy island” full of underage girls?
Such obvious double standards applied to equally relevant stories underestimate the wisdom of the public, discredit the press, and spit on the graves of every American who fought and died for the press's freedom.
I hate for anyone to go through this game liberals are allowed to play, relentlessly attacking on an uneven playing field until a conservative's career, relationships, and reputation are destroyed. To the media's targets I encourage, "Rise above by never claiming 'victim', tell the truth, and keep the faith!"

And, for what it's worth, "Welcome to my world; believe me - what doesn't kill you makes you stronger!"
Let’s Get This Straight, Liberals – What Kinds of Molestation are Acceptable?
June 4, 2015 by Bristol Palin
Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 7.51.10 AM
I can’t believe how crazy the media is going over the Duggar family compared to the big fat yawn they gave Lena Dunham when she wrote in her book that she sexually experimented with her sister. I’m sorry to have to do this, but let me remind you:
In her new book called Not That Kind of Girl – according to Bradford Thomas — she writes about “experimenting sexually with her younger sister Grace, whom she says she attempted to persuade to kiss her using ‘anything a sexual predator might do.’ In one particularly unsettling passage, Dunham experimented with her six-year younger sister’s vagina. ‘This was within the spectrum of things I did,’ she writes.”
It gets worse.
She also – according to her own book – used her sister, “essentially as a sexual outlet, bribing her to kiss her for prolonged periods and even masturbating while she is in the bed beside her.”

That makes me want to puke.
Remember the liberal media outrage?
Oh that’s right. It didn’t happen. The liberal media darling Dunham was praised for her “honest and witty” book.
The double standards make me sick. Josh Duggar touched a sleeping girls breast – a terrible thing to go. But now their ENTIRE family is punished and their hit show is canceled? He’s labeled as a pedophile? His family is crucified!
Liberals in today’s media can do no wrong, while conservatives can do no right.

White Concert Goer Beaten to a Pulp by 40 Blacks - NO MEDIA OUTRAGE


Image



You’re not likely to hear of this story unless you read it hear, because the mainstream media routinely ignores any incidents of black-on-white violence.

A hip-hop festival in Cincinnati erupted in violence this weekend, when a group of black concert goers spied a white man in the audience. Apparently, he didn’t get the memo that only African-Americans were welcome at the public event.

The man was reportedly beaten so severely by the mob of 40 black assailants that he had to be saved by police.

After attacking the white victim, the rioters turned on the police who had stepped in to save the man’s life. Assailants threw bottles at the officers and even got in a few punches before two arrests were made.

The incident unfolded in Fountain Square, where a summer showcase for local talent was taking place.

Here’s a Big Reason Why Liberals are DESPERATE To Distract You With Flag Controversies
Written by Allen West on July 13, 2015

We’re distracted in many various ways by the liberal progressive media. Their attempts to keep the American masses under some inane state of mindlessness or faux rage becomes more and more evident with each passing week.

I remember how the progressive socialist world went apoplectic because I stated the left has a propaganda machine that would even make Goebbels proud. I made that statement due to a member of the leftist media asking what I thought about a recent poll that showed many Americans believed the GOP controlled both houses of Congress. At that time, the GOP only had a majority in the House of Representatives. As predicted, the leftists ran stupid because they believe themselves to be the purveyors of what can and cannot be said. Their aim was to promulgate their coordinated media message that I was comparing the Democrat party to the Nazis. It’s just that it’s the media’s cultivation of mass hysteria that’s enabled the left to dominate the American political intelligence quotient. This is a purposeful endeavor, and anyone challenging them and illuminating the American people to the contrary is the target of their angst and their assault.

Well — with all due respect — they can “kiss my grits.” There are so many hard truths the liberal media’s avoiding and we all know why. I’d love to do a “man on the street” interview about the current Iranian negotiations vs. the Confederate battle flag and compare the general public’s awareness of each.


One of the hard truths the media seeks to sidestep is the fiscal state of the Union. They fail to cover the fact that when Barack Obama took office, the debt of the United States was $10.67T; today that debt’s exploded to $18.3T. However, there’s an even greater concern when we include the unfunded liabilities of the mandatory spending side of our budget. The mandatory side of the budget, as opposed to the discretionary side, includes Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security an net interest on the debt — what we’ve borrowed. That number expands Americans’ debt to nearly $100T. This is a great concern. All estimations point toward United States debt close to $20T at the end of Obama’s presidency. I want everyone to understand what that means: Barack Obama will have singlehandedly added more debt to the United States than all previous presidential administrations combined.
