    McDonald's Customer Freaks Out At Owner For Refusing To Take FOX News Off The TV

    I always find this stuff to be fun and certainly reinforces my opinion of many on the left.
    Fuming, Lechner reportedly confronted Lentini about it.
    "No you listen, I'm asking you to turn it off," Lechner said as he videotaped the argument. "OK, well that's fine you're the owner of this McDonald's right? I can't wait to put this on the — in Huffington Post. Here you go. Talking about war in the news and this guy don't want to turn it off."

    Reminds me of someone on this site a while back that threw a fit in a restaurant because they were playing the Dixie's Chicks and demanded that the restaurant turn off the "offensive music" or else they would never patronize the business again. I don't remember who it was....but I found it rather humourous that they felt that they were so important that they could impose their will on everyone else. This guy in the OP is just as big of a nutjob.

    Actually, I've only ever been to one McDonalds that had a TV not in the playground. It was tuned to Fox. Surprisingly, there were no riots and nobody was "Occupying" it.

    When I worked for McDonald's, they told us the customer was always right. I guess this time the customer is left.

    I didn't see that, but I agree... I would have found that humurous too.

    It was quite a fun thread back then...probably 3-4 years ago. The point being....there are ridiculous people on both extremes of the political spectrum.

    Wow. His reaction is pretty ridiculous and he is being way over-protective about his kid. When I was that young I just thought the news was boring and didn't pay attention to it. Even if your child asks a question about it, just give them an easy answer... it just what parents do.

    fine for a customer to ask for a change in business practices
    but when they refuse, don't throw a tantrum ... unless that is the behavior the parent intends to model for his kids
    vote with your feet and spend your dollars elsewhere

    doesn't matter whether they are showing faux news. msnbc or cartoons
    this does not appear to be a partisan issue

    I agree, I just find many more examples of it from a certain segment. That could just be confimation bias, but it is what it is.

    This is ridiculous. The guy looks like a raging tool. In a way, both of them do. But to throw a fit and record it so you can share it with the interwebz? You're just an attention whore.

    ....and I see it much more on the other. You are probably correct about "confirmation bias"....I often find myself needing to check myself.
