Market Forces Dish Network to End Fox News Blackout

Looks like there was more to the Dish Network dropping Fox News for several weeks than an inability of the two sides to agree on a contract. Dish founder and chairman Charles Ergen is a major moonbat who gives heavily to the Democrat Party and pressures others to do the same:

According to Open Secrets, Ergen donated a total of $64,000 to the Democratic Senatorial campaign Committee in 2014.

In the 2014 cycle Ergen gave almost exclusively to Democratic candidates particularly to endangered Senate Democrats including Kay Hagen(NC), Mark Pryor (ARK.), Mark Warner (Va) and Mark Begich (Alaska).

In addition to spending his money exceedingly unwisely,

In 2012, a federal complaint was filed against Ergen in which several company executives alleged that he had intimidated them into making contributions to specific candidates, the majority of which were Democrats.

The claim was filed by an unnamed company insider who accused Ergen of “forcing” Dish Network’s Chief Operating Officer Bernard Han to donate to a Democratic Party candidate in the 2009/2010 election cycle.

The complaint also claimed that Han was “encouraged” to attend Democratic functions and fundraisers and that other Dish employees were strong-armed by Ergen in a similar way.

Dish’s move has cost it 90,000 subscribers since the Fox News Channel blackout began, finally forcing it to restore FNC.

This probably won’t be the last time Ergen’s political preferences take a toll on countermoonbats in the audience. Viewers are advised to ditch Dish and get DirecTV or cable — or better still, use the Internet to choose your own programming.

Good luck getting the 90,000 subscribers back Ergen, you moonbat.
