Breitbart, it seems, has gotten a huge part of what is wrong with American culture, right!
Today they’ve a couple of stories in which I can’t agree more.
Do you watch MTV? Probably not. No one really does. So how is it that a network with almost no viewers manages to not only stay on the air but produce “White People,” a white-shaming movie directed by a racist illegal alien named Jose Antonio Vargas?
Answer (and I say this with affection): morons like you and I.
Is MTV part of your cable package? If it is, you are funding MTV, and doing so directly with money coming right out of your pocket. And that money is going to fund white-shaming films directed by racist, cultural supremacists like Jose Antonio Vargas.
Like dozens of cable channels — CNN and MSNBC are also good examples — viewership has almost nothing to do with the network’s revenue.
The reason your cable bill is so obnoxiously high is because too many of us are dumb enough to pay for cable (and satellite). Yes, you are literally paying for dozens of channels you never watch, and almost as many of those channels pump toxic cultural bilge directly into your home 24/7.
These hidden fees are called carriage fees. You pay them (yes you do!), and numerous left-wing multinational media corporations make billions off of this scam.
And this scam is why you are forced into paying for expensive cable packages that include all those channels.
And this scam is how YOU are funding a racist illegal alien’s white-shaming movie.
There is a solution: cut the cord.
And, then, there’s this! A small win in the world of media for conservatives!
A perfect example of one of the many wonderful benefits of cutting your cable television cord arrived this week with the news that Keith Olbermann is out at ESPN.
One of the primary keys to bringing down the left’s death-grip on the American culture is through the simple act of cord-cutting — where you the American consumer cancel your overpriced cable or satellite package and move to streaming television services like Netflix.
You see, most cable networks don’t have enough viewers to survive on advertising rates alone. Without forcing you to pay for dozens of channels you never watch, other than a handful of networks, the whole house of cards comes down.
According to the most recent information available, whether you watch ESPN or not, if it is included on your cable package (and it is on most), you are personally forking over morethan a $1.00 a month to the left-wing sports outlet.
Yes, you are subsidizing Keith Olbermann’s multi-million dollar platform to wage war against your values, your faith, your beliefs, and who you are as a person.
Or at least you were…
Sports-TV powerhouse ESPN, a profit machine that has long towered over the media landscape, is showing signs of stress as the pay-TV industry goes through an unprecedented period of upheaval.
A decline in subscribers as customers trim their cable bills, coupled with rising content costs and increased competition, has ESPN in belt-tightening mode, people familiar with the situation say.
The company, majority owned by Walt Disney Co., has lost 3.2 million subscribers in a little over a year, according to Nielsen data, as people have “cut the cord” by dropping their cable-TV subscriptions or downgraded to cheaper, slimmed-down TV packages devoid of expensive sports channels like ESPN.
On Wednesday, the company said it was parting ways with star host Keith Olbermann. That followed the exit in May of Bill Simmons, another big name. While Mr. Olbermann’s tendency to make controversial statements sometimes landed him in hot water with ESPN and some of its business partners, including the National Football League, the decision was a financial one, a person with knowledge of the decision said.
You want to see left-wing CNN and MSNBC on the ash heap of history?
Cut the cord.
Tired of paying for racist illegal aliens to produce white-shaming films for MTV?
Cut the cord.
You have the power.
What’s stopping you?
There is a wealth of entertainment online — entertainment like Netflix and Amazon and Hulu surviving on fee-for-service subscribers not a racket that forces you to pay for shows and networks like MTV and CNN that want to see you and everything you believe in destroyed.
Streaming is also cheaper. A lot cheaper. Crazy cheaper.
Olbermann need only be the beginning.
You know, I cut the cord out of financial necessity when I was jobless for an extended period of time. About the only thing I miss is the fact that I watch some football games which I wouldn’t normally watch. That said, I’m kinda glad that’s happened. I get to see a larger view of the players in the NFL. I’m a Cowboy fan, and so, typically, on a cable package, I’d be able to watch the ‘boys play. They are high profile, so, they air them. Doing regular broadcast, being in Kansas, the KC Chiefs are typically aired … and then a random couple of other teams ….. then the Sunday night broadcast. But, that’s it.
I believe, especially in the part of MTV and ESPN, their lost viewership is directly traceable to the leftardedness of the channels.
Even when I had cable, I had quit watching ESPN for years because of their leftardedness. And MTV? I quit watching them when they quit being about music ….. which was about 20 years ago.
For those who believe they need cable to keep up with the news ……. you’re simply wrong. There is nothing on TV news which isn’t already online. Daily, I go to work and conversation about current events always occurs. Now, typically, the particular current events they’re discussing holds no interest to me. But, when they do, I’m always more informed about the issue than the ones who get their news from the TV.
Oh, yeh, I do miss out on the latest cutsie TV commercial. I don’t get those, either.
Breitbart is entirely correct. When you subscribe to cable, or satellite TV, you’re mostly funding crap you’ll never watch, and funding the constant leftist drone, be it from a sitcom series, news, drama series, or garbage like ESPN and MTV, you’re funding the leftard messaging.
