I regret to inform you, dear directors of YES, but that deal you’re working on with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. & the Fox News Channel – for good business reasons, I’d advise you not to close it.

However, if you do close that deal, allowing Fox News to get a piece of the revenue of YES, I will remove YES from my cable selection and will refuse to contribute to that revenue in any way, as I already have with Fox News Channel and all other News Corp. products.

There may, in fact, be more people than you think who now boycott Rupert Murdoch and Fox News whenever and where ever they raise their ugly heads, and going forward, that boycott would affect your bottom line as well.

Further, I would encourage every reader of this posting to give thought to doing so as well. After all, what better way is there to get Rupert Murdoch to give up his right-wing advocacy and propagandizing, than to hit him where it hurts, in the pocketbook, on his bottom line, and with his investors and shareholders.

Doing so is, in my humble view, a prerequisite to salvaging our democracy from his grubby clutches.

Both of them are making a deal with the devil.
