Why don't you have The Blaze as part of you programming?  We are served a steady diet of junk from Al Jazeera, MSNBC and other propaganda stations.  We need a well-rounded diet of information available.  Serve-up The Blaze

If you have Al Jazeara, you don't have UVerse. AT&T has not added Al Jazeera?

There must be a new round of astroturfing going on for this channel. Guess negotiations aren't going their way for channel providers.

If the blaze is added I will drop uverse on day 1. Google fiber is coming to my area and will switch to make sure not one dime of my money goes to the hate monger Glen Beck.

oooh, threatening to leave over adding a channel.  Most threaten to leave if channel X is not added. 

 

Closed minded much.

I have facebook-requested The Blaze numerous times now.  I have multiple times, requested the channel on the AT&T U-Verse Channel Request page.  I'm trying to let you know on every possible you provide, that I WANT THE BLAZE ON MY TELEVISION!  This isn't "astroturf..."  This is a market segment begging you to offer a product as part of your package.  I'm not going to leave U-Verse if you don't get The Blaze (U-Verse is too good in other aspects to leave), but I will continue to be less-than pleased with your channel offering.

You're obviously a one-post wonder and you don't have an account with U-verse since U-verse doesn't carry Al Jazerra America.

I happen to have more respect for Glenn Beck than ANY person in the current adminstration, when Chris Kyle was killed last year, he attended the funeral for a HERO, not one single person from the current administration even mentioned it.

The "pot" is calling the "kettle" black.

 

The notion that Al Jazeera and MSNBC are "propaganda", but The Blaze is not is ridiculous.  All of them are "propaganda" from someone's point of view.

Fox News = Conservative Talk and Opinion. Not really news except every once in awhile. It's just a brand. 

 

MSNBC = Liberal Talk. Not really news. Not really news except every once in awhile. It's just a brand.

 

The Blaze = Glenn Beck's own network. His show. His opinion. His channel.

 

Al Jazeera America = A brand, not unlike CNN and the BBC trying to have a global presence. CNN has a Spanish network, CNN International, CNN Arabic. BBC has networks around the world, an Arabic network, etc. This is not unlike that. The difference here is there's no specific political agenda. That's the only way this network could be seen as relevant in this country because none of the other cable news channels do news this way anymore. It's just news, journalism. Some documentaries on the weekends with news on the top of every hour 24/7. Has some global news from Al Jazeera English, has some roundtable discussions, has some viewer input type shows (The Stream) but they don't focus on politics. 

 

CNN = Can't really take CNN seriously anymore.

 

HLN = Not what it was created for anymore. It's basically Court TV's replacement, with some added stuff. They focus on specific topics all day long. Not news, more pop culture and long periods of legal stories. The only thing that resembles news on this channel is the 10 minute CNN Student News at 4:00AM Eastern.
