For those who have Direct TV it is incredibly suspicious that Fox News Channel is suddenly unavailable due to "technical difficulties". Do we need an investigation?

Sounds suspicious. Try Youtube, sometimes I get it there.

Look on the bright side, now you have a chance to get acquainted with better sources of news. . .

DirectTV has blocked channels in the past due to licensing disagreements with the companies. They are probably trying to cheap out and fox isn't having it.

I don't know, BUT, I do know this. About two years ago it was blocked again because Fox wouldn't pay what they wanted them to.

In an election this close any advantage given to either side could tip the scales. I'm not buying that this is a coincidence.

It's back now but I'm wondering if DTV is a contributor to the Clinton Foundation.

Assange has already commented that Trump will lose, and he is the one releasing all the dirt. So don't get your panties in a bunch.

Since Direct TV wants to merge with ATT, and Hillary's position is on the fence. . . well, you know, it would be in their interest to make her happy. :D

Other than that, it looks like they have given to both parties pretty evenly. It looks like they haven't given to either Presidential candidate.

They merged like a year ago. Now ATT is buying the rest of the cable television (Time Warner). Funny thing was this though; CNN was not coming in as well.
