I'm happy it's done. But I don't consider it successful. Successful to me in this medium is deals getting done without one side or the other running crawls over shows, creating web sites, public bickering, etc. I mean its done and I'm glad we didn't lose any channels, it just doesn't say success to me.


In today's market, non-blackout USA success. Too contentious. Too greedy.

In this environment, success is getting a deal done.
