Yes we need to really start doing something about that. It pisses me off that CNN buys these huge contracts to boost ratings. Very few people fucking watch their shit so they buy viewers and force feed us their fake waste of time programming. Not sure how to change this, but I would support any cause to stop it. The people SHOULD have a choice, you are right.

I've just started, so I'm not sure what will happen. I foresee an uphill battle because it involves both local govt and money. I've written my local airport operations as they are so far the only email address I could locate. They do have a webpage that lists the airport trusts members, but no contact info. If it turns out they have to hold some sort of public meetings, I'll try to garner support, including maybe petitions, and attend that. Also might start rattling the local tv and newspapers to see if I can get attention that way. I'm not much of an "activist" so I don't have experience on the best tactics so hopefully I can get some local support. This seems like something that would be of some well-spent effort. We'll see.

I would certainly help you in any possible way. This is sadly a topic that's been left alone, but now that CNN is finally getting shown as the frauds they really are.. Maybe it's perfect time to get some traction and fight with it. Even Democrats probably get tired of stupid fucking fake news while they are sitting in an airport or working out at a gym.

I canceled my monthly car wash because they kept having cnn on in waiting room. They changed to hgtv so I told them that's why I was back. Money is your voice don't fund the enemy.

Other waiting rooms I break white people law and grab the remote and change it. Not exactly George Washington material but it's a start I can do.

So we're supposed to simply use a different airport?

Or don't use any airport. Do the probably Huwhitest thing out there and road trip.

I think it'd be cool if they set up machines under the TV(s) that you could slip your boarding pass into, select what station you want, out of preselected choices, then retrieve your pass. Then, every thirty minutes or so, the machines would change the station on the tv to whichever station had the most votes in the past thirty minutes. That way, the majority of people got to watch what they wanted to watch.
I get that this is a "fuck CNN and their fake news bullshit," but, just figured I'd share something I'd always thought would be cool.

Sounds good, find a way to package that and install it at zero cost to the airport operator and you'll have something going there.

At my local gym, as a regular member, I always ask to change the channel anytime I see CNN. I am doing my part in society. What are you doing?

Download tv remote app on your smartphone. Change channel at will. Better yet turn off tv. I do it all the time in doctors offices. The zombies don't even notice.
