Default Fox News off air this morning - possible contract dispute?

Drudge reports due to a contract dispute, Fox News to be pulled from line-up. I have Fox on now, seems fine. Wonder what is going on. It would be bad to lose Fox.

[Update]--Uh oh, looks like they are running those bumper things--no content, just previews of other shows.

[Update] - FOX News Live is currently on as of 12:38pm ET.

[Update 10/28] - New blog post: http://www.siriusbackstage.com/forum...ic.php?t=29286

Default Fox News Channel offline?

Reports are on Drudge, etc. that FoxNews has removed itself from SIRIUS lineup today, due to a contract dispute. FoxNews still tunes on my receiver (though I get no audio).

Anyone else?

Its Richard Simmons instead of Tony Snow, I suspect its FOX News radio programming rather than FOX News tv feed.



edit: Tony Snow is on. the TV feed is gone tho

Wait. It looks like FOX News tv feed is gone. It seems like a loop of sirius promos for FOX News.

Hopefully sirius will cave and we'll get FOX News radio and FOX Sports radio

This could be real bad if this is true. I noticed earlier that Fox News was advertising their agreement with XM for their Fox News Talk channel.

Top story on www.drudgereport.com. But when you click on it, it doesn't take you anywhere, as the story is "developing".

Two things immediately come to mind:
- Alot of righties own sirius radios
- With this Sirius is lagging behind drastically in the News area. Doesn't XM have CNN MSNBC and Fox. Now we're left with CNN. Go figure.

I'd be interested to hear their response, I actually wonder if Customer Service even knows about it.
