So I blocked Fox "News" from my cable.

So I got home from work today. My conservo-religious cuckoo mother-in-law was babysitting our kids. My wife and I have been on the fence about hiring a sitter instead of letting her parents babysit. We go back and forth every time my liberal wife and her mom fight about principles. On the one hand, we appreciate them helping with kid coverage since my wife and I both work. On the other, the expense of a sitter would be worth not having the drama. We also don’t want to deprive the kids from seeing their grandparents twice a week.

That said, I come home today and found the television on Fox “News”. A few years back I had that channel blocked with the parental lock. But that block either expired or got erased by an update or something - I wasn’t paying attention. But seeing it on our living room television today, I got irritated. I messaged the wifey-poo and said: (actual text message quote.. copied and pasted...quotation marks added because I appreciate grammar)

“Omg. Fox News was on our tv when I turned it on. Puke. I’m going to put the parental lock on that channel again. I’m not having your folks watch that when they are here with the kiddos. They were here with them for most of the day. Fox News propaganda is not allowed in our house. No debate about it. It peddles hate for profit. Not allowed in my book.”

She responded: “Agreed” (she was busy with a meeting and couldn’t vent her true feelings)

The moral: FOX has no place in my house, my life, or this world. It is a parasite. It is a pest. A termite of society. It must be given no quarter. No acceptance. No mercy. It would be illegal in an ideal society. It is hateful and damaging - especially to our elderly who, for whatever reason, are lured by their propaganda.

No Fox. Never. Ever. Ever. IT IS NOT ALLOWED. And should be snuffed out in order for the future to survive prosperously.
