    Original message The Sears store in our town had Fox News playing on half the TV sets in the electronics section.


    Edited on Mon Jan-17-11 12:41 AM by county worker
    We went to look at appliances and I asked the sales person to please change the channel on those TV's. She said she had to play what the home office tells her to.

    I ended up sending the home office this email:

    I went into the Sears store in Lompoc, CA today. My wife and I need to buy a new refrigerator and washer and dryer.
    I applied for a Sears charge and got $5,000 credit. I noticed that about 10 TV sets in the store had Fox News Channel on. I asked the sales person to please change the channel on those TVís since Fox is not news but extreme right wing propaganda and lies.
    She told me that she has to put on what the home office tells her to put on. I asked for the number of the home office ad she said she would have to dig it out.

    The lies on Fox news is helping to fuel the class war in this country that is responsible for the disappearance of the middle class and for the shutting down of businesses in Lompoc, CA.
    I will not be buying my refrigerator and washer and dryer from Sears as long as Fox news in on the TVís in the Sears stores.
    Please have the store in Lompoc change the channel from Fox news and let me know when they did it.

    This one sounds stupid enough to be true but ya never know...:D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Remember when the ABC or Disney (can't remember which) told the Baptist who was threatening to boycott to shove it or something like that?

    Yeah, those were good times. Seriously, I'm an equal opportunity "Go fuck yourself." kind of guy. Raw class, here.

    I saw this t-shirt in Kaufman Tires and wanted it for my own:

    Sears will probably be relieved with your decision. Once they figure out from your email you are a DUmmie, they will realize that they would have been out the $5,000 worth of credit the ebil corporate bastards extended to you.

    Seems there are a number of posters calling BS on this as well.

    IMHO the DUmmie made it up after reading about this:


    Some federal workers complained that FNC leaned too far right. But Wallner had nothing to do with the satellite feed or what channel appeared on the big-screen. That decision is left up to the U.S. General Services Administration which is in charge of all federal courthouses.

    The GSA at the Hatfield U.S. Courthouse heard complaints from people who don't even work in the building. The League of Women Voters of Portland actually took the matter up at a board meeting. Betsy Pratt, the league's president, said "more neutral media sources" were available. The League is officially a non-partisan group which participates in naturalization ceremonies inside the courthouse. When asked by Fox if she thought it was dangerous for newly sworn-in citizens to watch Fox News,

    Let's be honest. Sears is where the intellects shop so watching FOX is a good thing. Im sure Glen Beck was giving a history lesson.

    I see you're still being the condescending prick that you are. Sears has been in business for a long time so I guess they're doing something right.

    WTF does that even mean?

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't "go shopping", I go buying. I don't go to a place like Sears wondering what I am going to buy, I have already picked out what I want.

    Consequently, when I am in Sears or Best Buy or any other store and find myself annoyed by the garbage they have on TV (and it's usually entertainment garbage not news garbage) I turn it off.

    I am so tired of being bombarded with noise everywhere I go, that if possible I turn off anything within reach. I love getting old, not one person has said a word to me about this practice.

    Now, because they live to annoy, Walmart has some kind of system that turns the TV sets back on if they have been turned off, and the ones near the check outs cannot be turned off without damaging them.

    Tampa General hospital has two waiting rooms. A quiet room and a TV room. Good job. BTW, any doctor who has one of those TV's that runs endless commercials in his waiting room can come out and plug it back in after I leave. It's not my fault they disabled the controls and I had to unplug it.
