7. I worked in tech support for a cable provider.

Generally channels are lumped into blocks based on similar content/programming or just because they're the "regular" channels. Cable news channels tend to fall under the latter heading. It's just the way cable providers do things. I don't think you could make an argument that it violates your civil and/or religious rights.

You can always call them and ask that they block it on your box, so it'll just show a "not authorized" message if you go to that channel. You're still paying for it as part of that channel block, but at least it'll be impossible for it to be watched in your house. Unfortunately, the only way not to pay for it is to cut the cord.
