Re: “Bankrupt

I wonder how many bankruptcies Humboldt County suffers compared to the rest of the state/nation...another one of our many, and growing, unfavorable "records"??

Re: “Viacom Zaps Suddenlink


I think the issue is bigger than just "is the Daily Show on my cable feed."

If you are a Suddenlink Internet ONLY customer, (no Suddenlink cable service, no Suddenlink phone service), you still cannot go to the website for the Daily Show and watch the free streaming episode posted there for everybody. You get the "you are a Suddenlink customer, go to hell" message from Viacom.

However, if you browse to the same site for the Daily Show via 101 Netlink, or via AT&T, or some other ISP, you can stream the show no problem. I am pretty sure Seth from Netlink is NOT PAYING VIACOM for those of his customers that use their internet to stream a show! So, Viacom is now censoring what you can watch on the internet based on who you your ISP is, and whether or not that ISP service provider also own a cable service that won't "play ball" with Viacom, regardless if you, the affected consumer, are a cable customer or not! I cannot conceive how that is even legal. What does the ISP service people purchase have to do with cable service when they are not a cable customer?

Re: “A Star is Born and El Pulpo be thy Name

In my desire to create a book that would reveal Burning Man rather than describe it, I have successfully published Playa Dust! In order to create this collection of experiential essays, I invested in the first few hundred runs because this creative journey has meant the world to me. Now that I can share it with you, please purchase your copy at: and peer into the revelry that is Burning Man!

Re: “Viacom Zaps Suddenlink

The answer to "Why Glenn Beck" is actually pretty simple. Conservative news and commentary outlets have more viewers than their liberal counterparts. That's why Fox News is consistently #1 in the ratings and MSNBC is consistently at the bottom. It's the same situation with talk radio. Other than the ones that Suddenlink already carries, there are no liberal-leaning TV news/commentary networks that even exist, to the best of my knowledge.

If you want ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS (KEET has FOUR local TV channels), The CW, FOX, THIS TV (movie channel) and some others I can't recall, just get an outdoor TV antenna. Last I checked, there were 13 local channels being broadcast in the Eureka area. All of them are in HD and they are all FREE. I get a better picture with an outdoor antenna than I ever did on cable.

BTW, as for Viacom's whining and urging you to call Suddenlink and demand "your channels" back, it isn't going to happen. Period. And Viacom knows it. Cable companies only have the capacity to carry a limited number of channels and since adding the "replacement" channels, there are no longer enough TV slots to bring Viacom channels back. Even if Viacom decided to give-away their channels for free, it is way too late for that now.

Re: “Viacom Zaps Suddenlink

I am mortally wounded not being able to watch Daily Show either on line or on cable. I take offense that they took surveys, that no one was a part of. Totally agree with Brian on this one.

Re: “Viacom Zaps Suddenlink

Suddenlink stated they performed customer surveys to see which programming people wanted as replacement for the Viacom channels but I have to ask, where and who were the people surveyed who voted for Glen Beck? And why would Suddenlink promote a network, owned and operated by one of the driving forces behind the hyperpartisanship we have in this country. I don't particularly care for my cable subscription dollars going toward rewarding Beck for his antics.
