So when is the deadline for voting?


Probably there is no deadline.
I see they have 3 topics already completed and they have one Accepted tab also that is empty for the time being. It's some kind of ongoing voting, i suspect.

Yeah...that's what I suspect as well.  Im thinking that we are probably high enough already that we most likely will be on the show sometimes, since after #1 gets on, we will be the new# 1.

And again...Napolitano is not Glenn Beck.

Voted!
Less than 3000 votes between #1 and #2!
However, if this is as bad as Fox News with Glenn Beck... I don't know.
Anyhow, I suppose the important thing is that we popularise bitcoin.

It's not.  I understand why you would be suspicious of Fox News, but Napolitano is actually a very sane, freedom loving individual.  I would encourage you to check out some the clips of him on Fox Business on YouTube.  I think you'll agree that this would be very good publicity for BitCoin and that he would give it a fair hearing.  I would be terrified if Glenn Beck was going to be talking about BitCoin because all he'd have to do is explain how the letters of BitCoin, when rearranged, turn out to be 666 and half the US would believe him and start denouncing BitCoin.


Edit:  Yesterday I did some informal measuring and we were getting somewhere on the order of 5 - 10 votes per minute.  At that rate another day or two and we'll be first place.

This is effing funny:  http://youtu.be/nNOku6QP4UM.  I don't even agree with a lot of Stewart's politics, but this is brilliant.

I'm a little confused about the website.  Is it an official website that the judge or his producers regularly look to for stories?  Or, is it just somebody's blog where, every once in a while, something on the blog happens to get reported on (not because it was on the blog, but because it was newsworthy, or whatever)?

It slowed down to 1-2 votes per minute now Wink

I'm still not convinced that website has any direct affect, or any affect at all, on the content that appears, or may appear, on Freedom Watch.

No...this is real.

Fox Business with Napolitano != Fox News

But I understand your sentiment.  Perhaps you can find a similar voting site for one of the other major networks?  This might be a great way to promote bitcoins, if we can get it on a couple major networks to discuss it, it is sure to spark some interest.  It will also let major companies like eBay and Amazon know that it is out there.

Somehow I think that no matter how many votes we get... we will NEVER get free air time on fox.

Hey, it looks like the voting resets after a certain period of time.  I have been able to vote again from both my computer and my iPad.  You all should go back to the site and see if you are back up to 10 votes.  Then throw another 3 at bitcoin.  Smiley
