Democratic gym patron declares war on Fox News
She wants channel off TVs in exercise room

Ann Geddes doesn't want a "fair and balanced" workout. But the 49-year-old worker for a nonprofit agency is having no luck getting the channel changed in front of her favorite rowing machine at a Columbia gym.

The television happens to be tuned permanently to Fox News. Geddes, a liberal Democrat and former legislative aide to a Howard County delegate, said she can't stomach the conservative lineup that appears nightly as she gets her exercise. Even though the sound is off, the words scrolling across the bottom of the screen infuriate her.

"It makes my blood pressure go up," she said.

Befitting the democratic (with a small "d") pedigree of a planned community founded on the principle of races and classes living side by side, Geddes has taken her complaint up the chain of command, from the attendant at the gym run by the Columbia Association to the new president of the giant homeowners' group.

She's had no success. Now she's going public.

Columbia Association officials say they won't heed Geddes' request to remove Fox from the cable lineup. In order to provide choices and eliminate squabbling among patrons, they say that every gym monitor is tuned to a particular station and can't be changed. Of the 40 large-screen televisions in the general exercise rooms in Columbia's three gyms, three are set to receive Fox.

"There is no way that we can stop showing one channel because of one person," said Phil Nelson, the president of the homeowner's group, in a written response to Geddes' request.

Geddes said she's feeling brushed off and doesn't accept the explanation from association officials that Fox is the highest-rated cable news channel. She says that can't be the case in liberal-leaning Columbia, and she insists she is not giving up.

"When it became really upsetting to me was this summer with all the town hall meetings," she said. "I literally just close my eyes, but the problem I have frankly is, I see out of the corner of my eye. You can't help peeking," she said.

Freedom lovers might want to drop management a line and congratulate them for holding the line against this whiny Dem.

Typical leftist. She doesn't want it so everyone else MUST conform to what she wants because she knows best.

The orthopaedic surgeon always has CNN running on the set in the waiting room. I don't whine to the nurses to change it.

So does about every airport in the country. But it's OK because when it's liberal, it's always acceptable.

This is so typical of these people. They just can't fathom that there are actually views and opinions that differ theirs. This reminds me of something Bernard Goldberg wrote in Bias when he heard Pauline Kael say that she didn't understand how Nixon could have beaten McGovern because she didn't know anyone who voted for him...even though Nixon won 49 of the 50 states.

Remember - they know best. They know best what we should watch - think - do - how we should best spend our money . . . .

Unfortunately liberals are pulling this in many area. Remember when the left whined about the military playing FOX? My daughter works in a bank that plays FOX all day.......some of the customer have hissy fits about it.
With liberals it is there way or no way. I am now of the opinion that I will not budge an inch...Don't like is, tough!

I dislike any television in public spaces myself because it forces us all to be confronted with something we didn't agree to watch. Sports bars are an obvious exception since people go there to watch sports. But the encroachment of tv into airports, doctor's waiting rooms, gyms, restaurants, etc., is irritating. It's also mind control in that we're being pitched social and political messages and told what products to buy and we're usually not allowed to change the channel or turn off the tv. Makes me wonder if businesses are being paid to have televisions set on a certain station. Does anybody know if that's the case?
