Santa came early this year....

Let's hope we can have an even happier New Year...

Fox News viewers being duped, as the network seeks to raise customer Dish prices: It appears Fox News is increasing fees so much so, that Dish will have to charge more for their service. Viewers lose.
"It's like we're about to close on a house and the realtor is trying to make us buy a new car as well," Warren Schlichting, Dish's senior vice president of programming, said in a statement. "Fox blacked out two of its news channels, using them as leverage to triple rates on sports and entertainment channels that are not in this contract." Dish said it offered a short-term contract extension to keep the channels in its lineup, but Fox countered that Dish disconnected the channels "in an attempt to intimidate and sway our negotiations."
Suckers…Fox News has a much different take, one I'm sure their viewers will believe instantly-hook, line, and sinker:
"It is unfortunate that the millions of Fox News viewers on Dish were used as pawns by their provider," Tim Carry, executive vice president of distribution at Fox News Channel, said in a statement. "Hopefully they will vote with their hard earned money and seek another one of our other valued distributors immediately."
Who knows how to spin a yarn better than those at the upside down propaganda network, Fox News. Of course they would love to send you to the cable networks, who are paying the triple rates.
