Not sure what your point here is... US news channels edit and don't show videos in their entirety so that we can make an informed decision... and somehow that is better than seeing an entire video and forming a proper opinion? I don't want to see such things in their entirety as a rule, I don't like seeing fake violence to that degree even in movies... but it would be nice if the choice was there. I do remember how after the 9/11 attacks, the US news channels kept running the footage over and over of the actual plane crashes... so that people saw the full effect and knew the proper level of damage and lives taken... so, it seems like if the bad guys are making videos that show them being evil, you'd want more people to see that so they can see the extent of the evil... sanitizing it would only serve to put doubts in people's minds, no? Sure about that? I just saw a docudrama the other day about Hitler and how he was a struggling artist as a youth... seemed to be making him out to be a bit of a sympathetic character. It happens all the time as time goes by... people see ALL sides of a tyrant or an evil person and realize evil is more complex than just being evil. The guy who kicks puppies might also help old ladies... he's still evil, but more complicated than that. You mean like how the US-based news channels operate too? Where they claim to be giving the facts, only to omit some of the facts... FOX airs what serves their views... MSNBC airs what serves their views... and so forth. You really need to watch multiple channels to try and piece together the real truth about things most days. Are you sure about that? I remember lots of people saying that the people in those prisons "had no rights" and were "criminals" and "terrorists" and "deserved" whatever they got... I also remember that we still have prisons outside the US that are detaining people indefinitely... and I have no doubts that many of them are still being mistreated. Make no mistake... I do not support terrorism in any form... underscore "ANY"... So you saw clips too... you haven't really watched the channel... you've just seen more clips on the internet than I have. How come no outrage over beIN sport then? That channel has the same ownership I believe... so the same rules should apply... but it is a sports channel, so nobody is complaining that the "evil empire" owns it. Wait, what? So... there are only 2 different points of view for any issue? Really? The world is WAY more complex than that. To declare "we have MSNBC and FOX" and "that's all we need then" seems rather limited to me... there are far more things going on in the world, heck our own back yard... and I like having more options for my news... not less. Yes... exactly. 100% correct. But there is a distinct difference is saying "I will not watch Current" than "I will not watch any channel you carry if you also carry Current, which I will not watch." Who gives you the right to say what I or anyone else can watch just because you don't want to watch it? IF enough people don't watch it... then viewership would be low, and disinterest would result in the channel going away... But a large group of people not only NOT watching but PRESSURING companies not to carry even if enough people exist to watch it? That doesn't seem like capitalism to me... seems more like some of those oppressive countries we like to say we are better than... Wow... you really said that... You, who are actually trying to get a channel you don't approve of off the air are saying *I* am against free speech that I disapprove of? Really? Exactly... and in fact, you should read my very first post... I clearly said it is your (and anyone's) right to express dissatisfaction with the channel and to not watch it... and even to leave Dish, DirecTV, Time Warner, or whomever IF they don't drop the channel. Those are absolutely your rights. No one has said otherwise. BUT... I caution you... today, it is you who disapproves of Current's new ownership... and maybe you will succeed in pressuring DirecTV to drop it by threatening en mass to leave... Yay you! Then next month the Christian groups will make the same threat, to leave IF they don't start censoring HBO for nudity and language... and then a large group of Democrats will threaten to leave DirecTV if FOX News isn't taken off the air... and so forth. Your rights end when they infringe upon mine. You have the right not to read a book... you don't have the right to try and force bookstores not to carry that book for others. As I said... be careful what you wish for... IF successful, you may kick off a trend of groups threatening your provider to take down content they do not approve of... and then where will we be in this "free" country? Apples and oranges. This is a private forum setup by the owners... it is like their house. You have to obey the rules of the house you visit. There has never been a free speech guarantee in the house of someone else. But to use your example... to be fully a fair comparison... the staff here would not only have to stop you from cursing here BUT petition so that you could not curse anywhere. I'm not trying to force you to watch Current tv... but you are trying to make it so I cannot. FYI, full disclosure... I actually am not interested in Current tv... but I also refuse to persecute it just because of random things I read on the internet or hear on other tv that may or may not be accurate.
