Televisions in military food courts, customer service centers, malls and other common areas will no longer show news channels "due to their divisive political nature," according to the agency that oversees retail services.

The Army and Air Force Exchange Service, headquartered in Dallas, sent a memo to facility managers last week with the subject line: "Change in TV policy." "The exchange has elected to play sports channels/sports programming on all common area TVs" when its own informational service known as EXTV isn't being shown, the memo said.
