Fox-Proof that Television

New York Daily News (of all places) tips us off to a great new product, sadly a bit late for Christmas. It's a device that will block Faux "News" from your television. They treat it as a joke, and hopefully I'm old enough to continue not watching Murdoch's trash, but you may want to get one if you have children.

Sam Kimery and Joshua Montgomery, who are marketing the device, say it employs the technology already used to filter adult content.

And every time someone orders one of the gizmos from Foxblocker.com, Fox advertisers receive E-mail telling them that another consumer has just said no to Rupert Murdoch's brand of "fair and balanced news."

"We hope that companies will see people actually paying to block channels that won't offer alternative views, and then rethink how they spend their advertising dollars," Montgomery tells Variety V Life magazine.

You can order one at Foxblocker.com. (They have a cute logo in their banner. "Tell them to Shut the Fox Up!")
