Company Tells TV Viewers: ‘Shut The Fox Up’

TULSA, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An electronics company has come out with a gadget that out-foxes Fox News.

The so-called FoxBlocker is a filter that folks can put on their cable system to block Fox News channel. The device has to be custom-ordered for each U.S. region.

The gizmo is made by Mokipoke Enterprises, LLC, which calls Fox News channel “right wing propaganda.”

Co-creator Sam Kimery says the FoxBlocker “is not as clever as a V-chip” and it uses old technology that cable companies previously used to block viewers from getting premium channels.

However, his device is intended to be an attention grabber – especially from those folks at Fox. In fact, he’s expecting to be sued, which is why he made his company a Limited Liability Corporation to protect his personal assets.

Kimery hopes that the FoxBlocker will send a message to the Fox advertisers that the network is a “conglomerate media that has run amok.”
