Oh, and one more thing about Fox and Dish

When the Los Angeles Times initially reported the story about the regional Fox Sports channels and other News Corp. channels being yanked from Dish Network, they got comments.

A lot of comments.

Mostly of the "pox on both your houses" variety, although a few commenters expressed their hopes that Fox News Channel would also be yanked. (Los Angeles is a left-of-center city.)

But one comment inadvertently showed that we the people are not the most intelligent people:

The Fox networks belong to Rupert Murdoch who, surprise!, owns a 34 percent stake in Hughes Electronics, the operator of DirecTV. This is a naked attempt to push Dish Network out of the business and gain a monopoly in the Satellite TV provider market. BULLY FOR DISH NETWORK for standing up to this modern day Nelson Rockefeller!

While the commenter's conspiracy theory may be correct, I believe that the commenter actually meant to refer to John Rockefeller, not Nelson.
