Well, I haven't actually listened to the ABC News Radio stream, but I do know that the TV version of ABC News is definitely left of center. But if they got Sean Hannity then they can't be all bad

I agree. Left or right, if there's a contract to be honored, then Alan Colmes should be on the stream. It's sounding more and more like there's a Sirius Producer over there that keeps messing things up o the Fox Channel.

This close to contract talks? I think there's a head that is gonna roll...

Default Drudge/Reuters Article on Fox/Sirius Dispute

Drudge has another link to Fox/Sirius dispute. This is almost comical.

Link

I like the part where it mentions that Sirius continued broadcasting FNC "via a makeshift feed that Sirius borrowed from a cable television connection"

This doesn't look good for Sirius and consumers wanting to keep FNC.

There isn't another left wing one available as Air America is now XM exclusive. Even if there was, Sirius would then be in the position of either dropping Sirius Right or Patriot, or adding another leftish talk station.
well... Fox is fair and balanced, not right. not left
That's the funniest thing on this post. They are so far to the right it's amazing they can say fair and balanced with a straight face.

As I said before ditch Patriot and add Fox Talk. Move Laura Ingraham into Tony Snow's 9-noon slot (he will be on Fox), Tammy Bruce from Noon to 3:00. They need to move Cam and Company 3:00 to 6:00 pm. That would leave a replay of G. Gordon Liddy, Jerry Doyle, or Mike Church from the day before.

Thank you for contacting SIRIUS about FOX News. We are keeping Fox
news.
This has been a rumor floating around that we may be getting rid of
this
channel. Which is not true. I apologize for any inconvience.



Copy of the email customer care sent me on Thursday after I inquired about it. I also hear just the loops running on Thursday morning prior to the feed being reset.

I usually watch fox news on Sunday mornings, and this morning on my cable system (charter) its not on?? Checked around to see if they
changed the channel, but I don't see it!! Maybe it's more then
just SIRIUS.
