Tell the truth. DISH was not required to add the markets. Adding the markets was not a punishment for any crime. Once you accept those true statements we can talk. Until then, further discussion is useless. (You are wrong about the stations in the 12 markets. They are under no obligation to cover their entire Nielsen DMA. No station is under any such obligation to cover their market.) And now back to DC, where the future of distants is awaiting congressional action.
