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!

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" Anne explained.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

Iversen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to discuss what The Great Reset is and how YOU can help stop it. Watch the video clip from "The Glenn Beck Program" below:

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."
