Damn Libs.

At least I can call you names on the internet - thanks to Al Gore.

First Air America Radio, now Fox News. I wonder if XM is laughing at us?

Well that explains this morning. I was wondering what was going on. Hopefully they will renew it as I was just getting into it. I don't see why they wouldn't take both from FOX It sounds like a perfect match to have the whole shebang as it were.

At least you got a response that was related to the topic. I guess they were brought into the loop for this one.

I bet I spend a quarter of my time listening to Fox News while on the road. I know I'm probably the exception, but Fox News (I'm a former television news guy) and WSM are big reasons I got Sirius. Please don't tell me it's gone or going away. I believe this will have a major impact on subscriptions - now and in the future - uf true. JMHO, of course.

Could just be that Customer Service doesn't know anymore then we do.

If any of this is true then Sirius needs to step up to the plate sooner rather than later. This creates a big hole for customers that rely on their radios for news. XM offers 3 news channels, we might have one by the time this is over.

Yeah, I was just going to mention that. Who knows what it means?

Maybe Fox News set this all up----Fox is mad at Sirius for dragging its feet on contract talks; Fox plans on killing service for an hour to make a point; Fox makes sure that people know that this happens and tips Drudge and asks Drudge to make it a lead story; Drudge is happy to help Fox out; we react stronger than we would otherwise do so.
