Should have the option to drop Fox News from my current cable bundle
FaustoRodriguez

I have been a verizon customer for several years and in general satisfied with the channels offered in my bundle.

However, today I called customer service wondering how I could drop Fox news from my current bundle. i was informed that it was an unusual request, and that it would entail getting rid of other channels I enjoy.

I think dropping Fox news (given its negative impact on society, women and the environment), should be an option to me as a customer, the same way you have the option of eating food and water free of pesticides (even if you have to pay more for it).

Unfortunately, content contracts don't allow a la carte programming.

Sounds like fox has bundled their content (like other providers).

 Some subscribers do like Fox News.

Some think other channels should go as they have no use.

I'm not voting one way or the other, just laying out the facts.

There is plenty of your apparent Fake News preference on CNN, MSNBC,

ABC, CBS, NBC, etc.....  just watch them!

^^That response was telling.  

Since you can't successfully censor here (luckily for everyone else), you might want to try signing up with Comcast.  Since they are owned by NBC they might be empathetic to your hurt feelings and censor your channel line up for you.
