A new channel (not available) is filling the slot vacated by NASA's move to 286. Blaze TV.

Or at least that is what the Uplink Report shows ... "BLAZE" testing on channel 212.

This is a joke, right?

Might as well put another "earth channel" there.

I'd arther have BBC World, Al Jazeera, CSPAN3, CNN International, as aooposed to a 24 hour talk channel. Not that I am against a 24 hour Glenn Beck channel, but if the ideas is to provide news in the 200 - 215 range; there are other much better alterternatives.

A Glenn Beck channel???? $9.95 a month on line???? Presumably it will be a la carte? Oh well....

BBC world would be ok.

Sorry, I wouldn't consider what he spouts "news".

Used to be good for a laugh, now it's just boring.:nono2:

Not yet ... the channel is testing. I would consider it a serious test since NASA was pushed out of the way.

CORRECTION: FOX News did NOT get rid of Glenn Beck! He left on his own so he could do his own thing without network middlemen "filtering" his program.

Love him or hate him, he has a right to say what he wants. We still have free speech in the USA. Without someone pushing the envelope (on both sides) we risk losing that right.

BTW: Dish is one of his sponsors so it's a good guess that it is Glenn's network in testing.

By leaving FoxNews GB could have lost 90% of his viewers, a guess....but I do not know one person in my area who would pay to see his interviews and rants with the likes of Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann...of course I live in California....the other America the right hates.
The guy made millions at Fox and toured with O'Reilly (pasted tense). He left NY for the friendly confines of Texas.....I believe he took a huge pay cut by... leaving.....? and in an election cycle he could be relegated to the scape heap of "has beens" and whack jobs.
I know politics is disallowed here but it is a media thing...kind of, sorry.

The right does not hate anyone. It's the other side that wants everyone to believe that is the case (just watch MSNBC for 5 minutes and you will see for yourself).

If Ch 212 is indeed THE Blase TV then you can see for yourself that nothing but love for fellow man is promoted. Glenn just had a large conference in Dallas over the summer where thousands of people got involved in service projects to feed the hungry and do other deeds of kindness (like construction projects similar to Habitat For Humanity). They never ask who you voted for when they show their charity. BTW: Glenn is not a Republican, he is a Libertarian.

There are some who would rather watch BBC World than any of the U.S. based news channels since many consider all the U.S. based networks (including both FNC and MSNBC) of being "controlled" by whoever (The Government or some other think tank/conspiracy theory group) . The Blase TV is not controlled by anyone other than Glenn and his staff. That is why many hate him, because he can't be controlled.

BTW: I would not worry about his pay being cut. For Glenn it's not about the money.
