I'm ready to spit nails...
Advertisements [?]
We have been traveling from Maine to Michigan for a class reunion. Just checked into the motel, (Sleep Inn Choice Hotels) turned the TV on to see what news we have missed via MSNBC and... NO MSNBC, NO CNN, only Faux News!!! HBO and many other channels, but no MSNBC. I can't stomach Faux and refuse to watch it. I can't complain to the front desk because they are employees and have no authority to do anything about the channels. When I get home I plan to call and write the Choice Hotels Headquarters to register my complaint. I don't care that they offer Faux, but please give us a choice of cable news. Does anyone have any other ideas that I should do?
