    Personally I like Current a lot better than HLN, but I can see why most would not want it on News Mix since it's not news all the time. I find News Mix way too small and unwatchable though.

    3 low ratings democrat cheer leading channels (CNN,MSNBC,CRNT). 3 business channels and not the highest rated news channel Fox News. I'm not surprised. OK, Libs can now start ranting.

    ???

    retired flyer, both Fox News and the Weather Channel are among the 8, not 6, channels on the News Mix channel.

    I don't know what you are seeing. You are on channel 102, right?

    I know I am seeing Current TV and not Headline News there right now.

    Lancaster,...
    I remember when HLN had news, when the Weather Channel had weather, etc.

    I don't watch HLN, but seeing Robin Meade in HD would make me tune in sometime...

    Can't believe they put Current on there. I find it a very left wing biased infonews channel. What I mean by infonews, is they have no right wing counterbalance on their whole broadcast.

    I would imagine that last night's appearance by Current on the News Mix channel was a test for tonight's first Presidential debate. HLN is not carrying the debate but Current is.

    Is Fox News on the mix channel?

    Fox News weighs to the right SO heavily, it would balance out all other news channels if they WERE left. (And not all are.) :D

    Exactly. So I'm not sure why current being there is an issue based on the type of programming.

    At least you can find some Liberal counterbalance on FOX News, with people like Pat Caddell, Juan Williams, Allen Colmes, Bob Beckell, Mark Lamont-Hill and a few others. Still looking for a counterbalance on Current, that doesn't exist.

    Folks, this is not a thread about the political leanings of any channel or a thread about the President. Let's not go there.

    CRNT is owned and run by Al Gore - and I don't have to post what that means...

    I would rather have HLN, but agree, BBC News certainly deserves the spot more than CRNT

    As I suspected, Current was in News Mix for the debate and is gone today. Expect it to reappear for the next three debates.

    I totally forgot about news mix as it isn't in my favorites list.
    I have the news channels on my Quick Tune screen.

    Just tuned to 102 and that is a waste of space. Too much space at the top that could be used for 4 more channels.

    I think DirecTV should create a mix channel for QVC and the like. :)

    Yeah, and eliminate the transponder spots and channels for these telemarketing/shop at home channels.
