Comments on: U.S. downturn: Cable’s okay and so’s advertising…really? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/09/19/us-downturn-cables-okay-and-sos-advertisingreally/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: John Derrick http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/09/19/us-downturn-cables-okay-and-sos-advertisingreally/#comment-352448 Mon, 22 Sep 2008 20:23:28 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/09/19/us-downturn-cables-okay-and-sos-advertisingreally/#comment-352448 Like previous posts; this is another consumer who views News Corporations (MSNBC, CBS, CNN and ABC) to be unworthy of expenditures. I discontinued buying any newspaper years ago and look to media-neutral providers of internet services.

I, like many, tend to shy away from doing business with any company who demonstrates bias in reporting…I interpret their bias as a slap to my integrity, like I can’t make decisions for myself and family without their “spin” ???

The media ceased true news coverage in the late 1960’s…since then, the media reports views of its ownership. And they expect VIEWERS like you and me to buy their services? If any other provider of a service demonstrated this; they would be OUT OF BUSINESS !!

I value Internet access far more and have no problem keeping up with programs I want to watch via the ‘net.

Paying for programming that still feeds you advertising? First thing to go.

This is one of the first things I am shutting off, since I can download what I want, and it is quite simple to get free cable if need be. Its a rip off anyways, and equates to a corporate donation every month for mass media control and advertisements
