Are cable companies listening to your calls for TheBlaze?

Message from Lynne Costantini - President, Business Development:

Your support of TheBlaze over the past few weeks has been phenomenal!  You are by far, the most engaged and loyal audience in America.  Thank you!

Despite the fact that you’ve made 31,000 phone calls, sent over 85,000 emails, filled out thousands of online channel request forms, tweeted tens of thousands of times, and posted tens of thousands of messages on their Facebook pages, TV providers don’t seem to be taking your polite and persistent requests to add TheBlaze seriously.

xSo we have to ask:  “Are they listening???”

According to the Dictionary, “LISTEN” means “to pay attention to”, “to hear something with thoughtful attention”; “to give consideration”; “to be alert to”.

Here’s what they are saying to us and to you….Are they giving you lip service or are they listening?   We’ll leave it to you to decide.

DIRECTV:

“….we are always in discussions with programmers about which channels to add to the DIRECTV lineup, but have no plans to add The Blaze Network at this time. Thank you.”

“We’ve gotten a bunch of letters…. , but we don’t see that there’s much demand.”  

Time Warner Cable:

“Thanks for your input. As you probably know, we're constantly evaluating new networks for carriage on our lineup. You should know that Blaze TV already makes its programming available to interested customers, for a fee, online.”

“We’ve gotten a bunch of calls and some letters, but not enough interest to make a difference.” 

Suddenlink:

“A number of you have expressed interest in TheBlaze. There are several options for viewing this network, detailed here: http://www.video.theblaze.com/about/how_to_watch.jsp…..”

“Due to budget and bandwidth constraints, we’re not adding channels until 2015.”

Bright House Networks:

“Thank you for your Blaze channel request. Channel requests can be made by contacting us here:http://www.brighthouse.com/corporate/support/contact”

AT&T UVERSE:

Hi, we're glad to hear you've filled out our survey and we'll be sure to let you know if we have any news to report! Thanks!”

“Thanks for the suggestion! Be sure to request [TheBlaze] using our online channel survey athttp://uverse.us/ChannelSurvey.

Cox

“Hi thanks for your suggestion [to add TheBlaze]. Since customer demand is the largest factor in the decision to add more channels to our lineup, I’ve submitted your request to our programming team.”

Verizon

“we're currently tracking requests for The Blaze channel and appreciate you taking the time to register here:http://vz.to/TheBlaze.”

Charter

“You can submit a request for that channel by filling out this form: http://Charter.com/ChannelRequest. Our Product and Marketing teams review the requests to determine which channels to add.”

“We’re not meeting with or adding new independent channels at this time……”

Sadly, most of your posts, emails are online requests are simply being ignored. Are they listening or just collecting data?

This week we’ll be talking to Comcast.  As you know, they own MSNBC, NBC News, and will soon carry Al Jazeera America.  We sure hope that their liberal bias doesn’t get in the way of them making a smart business decision to add a channel that balances out this bias and gives their customers more choice.

It’s hard to believe that the thousands of messages and interactions you’ve had with TV providers are not enough to prove that there’s demand.  Are they “alert”?  And it’s even more surprising that they are sending their valuable customers to watch TheBlaze online when you’ve told them you want to watch it on television.  Are they “hearing you with thoughtful attention?”

Pay TV providers seems to think that the interest you have expressed so far in such incredible numbers is nothing more that some “once and done” marketing gimmick.  Are they “paying attention”?

They obviously don’t understand your commitment or the size of this audience.  They don’t understand that you’re not okay with paying the kind of money you pay each month for their service and not having a say in what you can watch.  It’s bad enough that you are forced to pay for expensive sports channels that you don’t watch and didn’t ask for.  They need to understand that you’re not okay being forced to pay for channels like MSNBC, CNN or Al Jazeera America and that you want TheBlaze on cable and satellite television because this is a network that represents your values.  Are they “giving you due consideration”?

Why aren’t they listening to you? It’s your money … don’t you deserve a choice?

As we said when we launched our “Get The Blaze” campaign a few short weeks ago, this is going to be a long fight and one that tests our resolve, but it’s a fight we are going to win.

We need to continue to help TV providers understand that we’re not going away until they add TheBlaze to their channel line-ups!

So I guess we have to crank up the volume, because they don’t seem to be listening to you!

Let’s throw down the gauntlet and make enough noise so that our voices do make a difference to them!  Let’s not be ignored.

Today we’re asking you to get back on the phone and politely ask “Are You Listening?”  Let them know you want TheBlaze included in the programming package you pay for and you intend to keep calling until they make it happen.

It seems as though the emails you’re are sending are not being read or are collecting dust in a pile somewhere in some offshore call center, so we’re asking you to call.  If you call, they have to answer the phone, listen and respond.  If they are not responsive, ask to speak to a supervisor.  And don’t take “no” for an answer!

Ask them:  Are you listening?  Do it now!

If you can’t call, send them an email.

And while you’re at it, go to their Facebook page and post the message there - “Are You Listening?  I want TheBlaze on TV!”

Let’s make sure TV providers know that you're willing to make your voices heard until they launch TheBlaze.  Together we can make our shared values available to more people on television.

To make your connections just go to gettheblaze.com  ...we’ll connect you to your provider or you can call 1-800-996-2529 that’s 1-800-996-2529.

Thank you for your dedication and support!

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
