How widespread is the "Fox News Default" at Holiday Inns & other hotels?
I recently stayed at a Holiday Inn Express here in Oregon. If you turned the room TV on, it would go to Fox News, no matter what channel had been on when you last turned it off. Also, in the hotel's breakfast room, where guests eat the "free" morning meal, the TV was on and tuned to Murdoch's all-propaganda channel.
I'm guessing Fox throws a little $$ to the Holiday Inn Corp. for this Orwellian policy. Has anyone else looked into this? I'm wondering if this is Holiday Inn's policy nationwide, or just in certain hotels. I'd like to contact the Holiday Inn public relations people, but I need more information first. Thanks.
