    Agreed... I don't think the McCain camp has the money to do this. Obama is much more heavily funded then McCain.

    Never said anybody was calling this political, just making a statement.

    Heck, this debate can't be as good as the one going on right now. :)

    Any channel devoted to Obama or McCain would be in violation of the Federal Truth in Advertising Laws... :D

    lol, no doubt. I am a very partisan person, but even I think this is just TOOOOOOOO much. Should they add a McCain channel, you can count me out on watching it, even though he is my choice. I feel sorry for you guys/gals who are in "swing states", it must excruciating.

    Looking at the screen shot...it appears to be an HD channel. Does that mean DISH will be adding that to their tally? :)

    lol

    Dish needs to do something to get some cash flow before they post their 3rd quarter numbers. I don't think they have had the turn around they wanted.

    Has anyone watched this channel. I'd be all for it if it was more in-depth thoughts from the candidate. The same goes for a channel by McCain. Now, if it's just strung together 1-minute commercials it's a waste.

    I personally think that D* should not have a channel of ANY KIND like this. It is quite pathetic that E* has chosen one candidate over another, and in my opinion it is just another way where the media (yes, E* is media broadcaster) shows bias.

    I feel that the McCain campaign should probably sue E* due to the fact that he doesn't have the same opportunity for equal time. Isn't the media REQUIRED to give both candidates equal time?

    Who's to say that Dish didn't extend the same opportunity to the McCain camp? I believe it'd be unfair to just set this up for one candidate, unless Dish is an overall Democratic supporting company. And even so, if the opportunity was presented, and the McCainiacs said no, then I don't see the big deal.

    EDIT: I see you edited your post that originally said:

    The sentiment remains the same.
