Does Encore Want More Gov. Arnold?
From when the polls open until they close, there will be one cable outlet showing non-stop Arnold Schwarzenegger, at no cost to the incumbent Governor.
Encore Action, channel 532 if you have DirecTV, will be having an Arnold Marathon today with a nice little rotation of Terminator, T2, and Conan The Destroyer.
Interesting day to play these fine films all day and all night.
Encore is owned by Starz, which is owned by Liberty Media Corp., which is owned by QVC head John Malone. Liberty Media is the largest shareholder of News Corp (Murdoch, Fox News).
So we suppose it wouldn't be out of the ordinary for the largest shareholder of the parent company of Fox News to give the incumbent governor of the huge state like California a little unfair advantage. We just never thought they'd be so obvious.
