Why are only some of my cable channels static-y?

Why are some of my cable channels covered in snow, while others are perfectly fine?

A select few of my cable channels, namely channels 2 through 6 (the local network channels), are so covered in snow that I can barely see the picture. However, the rest of my 60-odd cable channels come in clear. I just noticed tonight that if I watch channels 2-6 through the VCR, the snow is gone. What gives?
My TV set-up is as follows:
wall jack -> 50' coax cable -> VCR/DVD player -> 2' push-on coax cable -> TV jack.
