    It's what passes for 'research' in today's journalism. Make your conclusion, then go out and look for supporting info all the while ignoring the info that doesn't support that conclusion.

    Every radio/tv yakker on both sides of the political aisle has been doing it this way for years.

    When I was reading I thought the very same. Mike White did it.

    Indeed. Somewhere it transitioned from "worst company to work for" to a "bash dish" piece.

    Peace,

    Which is why some of us have avoided posting on this topic altogether.

    It may be slanted toward Dish being a bad company or Ergen being a bad person as a CEO. But how many people don't like Ergen or Dish. So it can't all be slanted toward bad or good. And No I don't work for Dish OR DirecTV.

    May be a bash piece, but if even half of it is factual, it is pretty horrible.

    The direct quotes from people who worked closely with Charlie are pretty damning.

    The article sounded accurate to me. A perfect example of why I won't do business with Dish or have any affiliation with them.

    Shouldn't this be on the Dish discussion board? Threads are removed here all the time if they don't pertain to DirecTV. Why is this different?


    By the way, the only reason DirecTVs rates are as low as they are is because of competition from Dish. So I like how he keeps costs down.

    Dish is a horrible company and I'm glad I stopped doing business with them years ago.

    Dish is only one variable in the equation. You are giving Dish way to much credit.

    The author had an agenda and then a Directv employee came here to post it, shocker.

    I'd love to have a beer with one of Charlie's five kids.

    Scariest line of the article: "He’s also made it clear that he’d like to try again to merge with DirecTV "

    Obviously, I'd drop D* the second Charlie took control.

    Remember the early days of Home Shopping Network? A goofball would be behind a desk with a "Tootie" horn? It was like an old SCTV skit, and that's what I think of Charlie and his mean companies.

    You mean like when XM (the bigger and growing) company took over Sirius?
