Ever since the 2016 US Presidential election, I’ve pretty much stopped watching any cable news channels. It’s noisy and negative and seems to be designed to hook us in with anger.
Now health club chain Life Time Fitness has officially pulled cable news networks from TVs at its 128 locations to promote a “healthy way of life”.
The fitness center has removed CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC and CNBC from its televisions.
“The decision to remove the national cable network news stations resulted from significant member feedback received over time and our commitment to provide family oriented environments free of consistently negative or politically charged content,” the company said.
“It always is our goal to meet the majority of members’ expressed requests and we believe this change is consistent with the desires of overall membership as well as our healthy way of life philosophy.”
Now if only we could pull the plug on The Bachelor.
