Where art thou, Lifetime?

As some of you may have heard, DISH network unilaterally chose to pull Lifetime and Lifetime Movie Network - the two most popular women's cable networks - off the air, on New Year's Eve. They are doing a great public disservice by preventing women from receiving the critical information and support that Lifetime offers, through its programming and public advocacy campaigns ranging from raising breast cancer awareness to stopping violence against women to encouraging women to vote and run for elected office. For 20 years, Lifetime has been dedicated to advocating on behalf of women on-air, on-line, in communities across the country and in the halls of Congress. For 20 years, Lifetime has made it its priority to inform women on the issues that matter most to them and their families. Don't let DISH network deprive women of the critical resources, information and inspiration Lifetime provides. We understand that there have been many false claims made by DISH and you can go to to get the facts and more information.
