You might think that the nice folks who watch Fox News channel on cable would support free enterprise.
Sam Kimery is a guy who makes a little $8.95 device the size of a thumb that you screw into your cable supply and which then blocks the Fox channel. If I had a TV, and if I had cable, I might well want one to protect my children.
No one forces you to buy one, no one forces you to install one. And only about 100 people have bought them. But that, and a little news coverage, was enough to bring the Foxers out in force:
Yahoo! News – Man Sells Device That Blocks Fox News: The Tulsa, Okla., resident also has received thousands of e-mails, both angry and complimentary — as well as a few death threats.
“Apparently the making of terroristic threats against those who don't share your views is a high art form among a certain core audience,” said Kimery, 45.
Sounds like something you would read at Orcinus.
Update: What is it with death threats? Couldn't be something in the news, could it?
