Some guy in the lounge today was hellbent on getting the TVs turned to Fox News because the only thing showing was CNN. 🙄🙄

Anyone in a lounge hellbent on anything is probably worthy of an eye roll

I'd be moderately more interested in lounge tv if they were playing HGTV/DIY/etc instead of CNN or Fox nonsense.

I’d take ESPN or CNBC as well. That said, I’m usually on my laptop or phone anyway, so I don’t pay too much attention

More power to him! Makes me sick that CNN garbage is played on loop in all airports, nothing about CNN is fact.

And fox is what then according to you? I’ve got real new my friend.. they all suck, they are are all selfishly pandering to their loyalists. None of these are about presenting facts or reality to people.

I’m not exactly following why someone changing a tv channel is worthy of an eye roll.

What’s interesting is that the actual “News” programming (all of 2 shows?) maintains relatively decent journalistic standards. The issue is that most of their content is not news at all but rather opinion shows with talking heads pandering to tin-foil wearing/ Qannon/ Trump sycophants. Fox News Network is a cable channel which means it can call itself whatever it wants without the FCC being involved in regulating it, whereas local Fox stations fall under Fox Broadcasting Network which are regulated by the FCC as over the air broadcast stations are. Which is why local stations actually report news content and special interest pieces as opposed to being talking heads/ entertainment

It is odd that CNN actually has contracts with most airports in the US to only play CNN on all their TVs. They are finally getting a little competition, thankfully

It'll be interesting to see what happens over the next few years as the current CNN airport contracts come up for renewal. I think SLC said they weren't going to renew when their contract expired, or at least that's one I remember seeing a headline about.

@OP: Was the dude successful? My understanding is that per the normal contract, CNN actually controls the tvs and gate staff usually don't have remotes.

every time a consultant glorifies their coffee addiction and reveres Starbucks, it grinds my gears. But this is cruel - close the damn stores.

It’s interesting how America spent trillions of dollars on wars and glorifying soldiers when the biggest threat to its wellbeing these days is a pandemic. Let’s invest more in our healthcare sector!
