Didn't you and I have an exchange about this the other day? I know it was with someone...
Someone said that there's no free TV, and I pointed out that while you have to pay for cable and satellite, OTA is free. The claim was made that OTA isn't free, because of taxes and commercials, but I then countered, successfully, that those are still there even if you're a cable/satellite customer AND you have a monthly bill to boot.
The only difference is that if you're NOT a cable/satellite customer, but instead view OTA only, you DON'T pay for your television.
THIS is a fact, and thus is the only point of view.
Now, someone might tell you that giraffes are actually Russian spies, but the evidence says otherwise. They might be said to have a "point of view", but I can't quite call it that.
Facts are facts.
