Finley: Few Fox friends in Ann Arbor

There’s no escaping liberal intolerance, even in the gym. An Ypsilanti couple recently joined the Ann Arbor rec center and was immediately offended that one of the TV stations in the workout room is tuned to the Fox News Channel.

Though the sound is turned off and there are other TVs showing other programming, husband and wife complained that a wayward glance at the television while they’re sweating away on the elliptical might expose them to conservative views via closed captioning. Instead of turning their eyes from the abomination, they pitched a fit.

In true Ann Arbor form, the center is now putting the matter to a vote, and will let gym users decided which channels should appear on the screens. Fox News fans can count on losing that option. Ann Arbor, apparently, is not schooled in the tyranny of the majority.
