The Fox News Blocker

A nerd from Tulsa, OK has created a bauble that will block Fox News from your television. Why?
(Sam) Kimery now contends Fox News' top-level management dictates a conservative journalistic bias, that inaccuracies never are retracted, and what airs is more opinion than news. "I might as well be reading tabloids out of the grocery store," he said. "Anything to get a rise out of the viewer and to reinforce certain retrograde notions."
Well, it seems to me that you could have stuck just about any other news agency name in place of Fox News and stuck in the word anti in front of conservative and have been fairly accurate.

To date Kimery has sold about 100 of the devices. Fox News has about 1.6 million viewers.
