Actually, I’m little envious of this guy’s inventiveness.
It's not that Sam Kimery objects to the views expressed on Fox News. The creator of the "Fox Blocker" contends the channel is not news at all. [SNIP]
Kimery figures he's sold about 100 of the little silver bits of metal that screw into the back of most televisions, allowing people to filter Fox News from their sets, since its August debut. [SNIP]
Kimery now contends Fox News' top-level management dictates a conservative journalistic bias, that inaccuracies are never retracted, and what winds up on the air is more opinion than news. "I might as well be reading tabloids out of the grocery store," he says. "Anything to get a rise out of the viewer and to reinforce certain retrograde notions."
Kimery says he’s a Republican-turned-Independent, but I think that line is merely marketing PR. Look! He’s even got the mindset pegged.
Kimery's motives go deeper than preventing people from watching the channel, which he acknowledges can be done without the Blocker. But he likens his device to burning a draft card, a tangible example of disagreement.(Emphasis mine.)
Those deep motives no doubt include reeling in the dimmer among us who are willing to pay $8.95 for something they can do for free. This guy is a genius!
As a good capitalist, I salute you, Mr. Kimery. And we’ll just keep your little secret between us.
