    Some interesting comments in the second article about Congress and the FCC pushing each other for more power to protect the consumer.

    Replacing them is interesting, but can they do that indefinitely? At least it means they'll get Olympic coverage. At first I wondered why Terre Haute, but no stranger than Louisville getting Rochester NY. then I realized all the replacements are owned by the same company.

    It gets crazier. Time Warner is now blacking out the replacement for our NBC from 2-4 because they air Divorce Court and People's Court. Another station here says they have the exclusive on those shows.

    The owner of the replacement says Time Warner is not doing this legally and is unauthorized. They say that they will air it to the courts.
