2 (I hope)

Notice that it is the E* subs that want the merger and the D* subs that don't....

absolutely... those 'large' entities opposed to it (NAB, NRTC, et al) have a vested interest in not seeing it go ahead and have already cheesed off the Justice Dept...

those that say 'it will mean higher prices for rural people' are just plain demented... NRTC already charges more for service.. never mind what they try to stick people for receivers...

2 - No way. Too many people are starting to fight against it, and Charlie is getting the image of the Big Bad Wolf already.

I honestly believe Charlie when he says that the only short term solution to the picture quality issues is the merge.

Although I want it to happen for the resultant better picture quality, the certain delivery of my locals, additional HDTV, and better competition against cable. I give it a 40/60 odds at the moment. This is down from 50/50 for a long time and from a previous 75/25 odds. Going in the wrong direction.

2...it's a blatant monopoly without a doubt. Less competition is bad for us.

In reality it's about money though. Whoever's lobbiest's has the deepest pockets wins.
