Forum Post: Comcast cut C-span... and gave me Plum rich lifestyles network

Yes they cut C-span from basic cable and have instead given me a network called Plum, which apparently is a station dedicated to displaying the lifestyles of elite wealthy people. I only get about four channels anyway, the other channels are always playing American Idol and Dancing with the stars on a loop or showing a program about Jesus.

Did I somehow fall into a parallel world where all my worst nightmares and apparently a subdued version of The Hunger Games is coming true?

Comcast is also responsible for the MSNBC takeover; they bought it then snuffed it out. But I guess I didn't get that channel anyway, nor do I get any other news networks including CNN, ( FAUX News-which pains me very little), and most devastatingly C-span (which is live footage of congressional votes and debates.)

What's next public television? (I'm afraid to ask that question)

Where is the Fairness Doctrine? Bring it Back!!!

Hmm day one Romney inclines in the "polls" which polls/ from where, no one really knows; most likely Koch brothers polls and studies.

day 2: Romney won the debated one em outright everyone says so even those polls (which polls/ no one knows where, probably a Koch brothers funded study group or poll)

Plum is good stuff. It's like PBS with class. Lots of my friends have worked for them. It's like the TV version of Gen Art.

costs 9 years of rent (using rent at $800.00 per month)

Guess we know what your landlord is buying with all your hard earned money and tax savings - being your rent is qualified capital gains income
