I don't always see eye to eye with Mr. Long but, in fairness, when he has expressed political beliefs they tend to be pretty conservative. His comment here does not seem to have anything to do with Fox's political leanings it is more of a comment on how they include footage that might not meet the definition of family fare. In the end I think Fox was chosen because it is cheaper than many of the alternatives and it's overall political perspective seems to fit the demographics of the Dish Family Pack. butt his Family Pack isa peculiar bird. It is not part of the main DISH line and there are indications (from the recent HBO promotion) that DISH does not include those customers as subscribers for some purposes (although I will be that they show up when the total sub number is quoted) . In the end i think that DISH just chose the news channel that seemed to most closely fit with the goals above. But they don't control its content and I don't know how many people share JL's concerns.
