Default Discovery Networks Backpedals

Last night I was flipping the channels on TV and saw Sons of Guns on the listings. The channel was Discovery HD and the episode was new.

Just a few months ago Discovery trashed guns and the second amendment. They cancelled all their programming related to firearms. Now they are showing it again.

Anyone know anything about this? Why they changed their mind?

possibly advertising and huge amounts of money on the line.

That's what I figured. I was wondering if any of this was in the media and if Discovery made a statement like they did after they cancelled all the gun programming.

Hope they lost a lot of ad dollars. They def lost all of our support.

Sure I know why. 1. They saw that it looked as if we were going to be the winning side, 2. Advertising dollars.
