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

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.
