here's an even better idea: can we all stop getting "offended" so easily?

Be glad that there is at least one channel which airs the regular shows. Do you really want to see the same Presidential speech on ALL the channels??? Ypu can only watch one channel at the time, can you? (Or you must have a Zooropa video wall in your living room )

And what is it with people who call others a racist for no reason?

Sorry, didn't want to offend you, but that's what I think!

This has occurred during several of his press conferences. CNN, MSNBC, and CSPAN carried them, while Fox News did not. I don't watch Fox, I only discovered this by chance. For all I know, they haven't shown a single one of his press conferences.

Anyway, it doesn't bother me. They're free to show whatever they want. They're doing the smart thing, clearly their viewers don't like and aren't interested in listening to President Obama.

I think the issue here wasn't "do our viewers care about Obama yammering on" as much as "crap, this is going to pre-empt American Idol and we're going to lose a bazillion dollars."

I can't speak to Fox News itself, but that'd be a reasonable explanation as to why they didn't air it on the main Fox network.

Well, unless he is declaring war to the world or something like that I don't really see why all the channels, especially the regular ones, should have to preempt their programmes.

But maybe that's because here we would need such a topic at a press conference for our TV channels to show that instead of their regular programmes.

Oi.

This is so NOT about racism. You might be able to make the argument that it's about politics (i.e. Fox would have pre-empted for a Republican candidate) but to make this about racism is just sheer nonsense and serves only to reinforce the ideas our conservative posters have about liberal whining.

I think the thread title was just meant to be funny/ironic

It didn't help that the topic itself was barely worth a thread.

(No offense intended, CTU2Fan.)

Well, I saw Genean Garafolo on MSNBC and she called me a redneck, tea-bagging racist, so I guess its true.
