  •  Since TWC carries AL Jazeera (9+ / 0-)

    through an arrangement with another channel owner, I didn't think the action was anti-Al Jazeera.  I believe it is anti-information and corporate greed.

    •  Oh yeah, it's greed (4+ / 0-)

      But the biggest part of that greed is that they won't go full ala carte.   Going full ala carte would mean a lot of stations would pretty well go under because no one would pay for them.   But it would also be a more fair way of determining things.

      We all hate it when shows get cancelled because of low ratings, but a bit comforted it's because people in general didn't get it.  (which still burns me on a few)

      But with the way this system works nobody really gets that feeling.
