Oh for God's sake veedon please, the current Retransmission Consent regime is outdated
and it needs to be reform to fit 21st century needs. Also The NAB and broadcasters prefer to live in the past using 1960s business models, outdated unfair lame silly laws, and hating innovation. The NAB said that Aereo characterized our lawsuit as an attack on innovation; that claim is demonstrably false
That's a DAMN lie! The NAB's rip-off site of American TV Alliance called TVFreedom.org pretend to support retransmission consent reform while they're lying to your faces and blamed providers for blackouts and stifling innovation...The NAB are also lying to your faces too! I wish someone force to shut-down TVFreedom.org
The TRUTH: The Broadcasters forced Pay-Televison providers to blackout their content (despite free OTA with indoor/outdoor antenna) unless the providers paid the so-called ransom.
American TV Alliance tells the truth about The NAB's hypocrisy and their abusive powers and the NAB's hating on reforming outdated retransmission consent laws that we needed for Pete's sake.
In conclusion I have to disagree on your reply about SCOTUS decision. I hate hearing the 5 dreadful words I Hate to Hear There's Nothing You Can Do!
That's BS nonsense! I'm a true American who believe what's right for this country and I hate corporate greed and corruption like The NAB are doing. I hate communism, but I love freedom of choice, and The NAB destroyed it.
Also, what I also hate to get in the mail a defamation lawsuit
by The NAB about my comments. I'll be P-I-S-S-E-D if I receive it in the mail, that's for damn sure.
I'll be happy if The NAB is disestablished one day, never knows...Abolish The NAB and Let Freedom Ring
. But this is the USA and We Shall Overcome!
Chet Kanojia and Barry Diller were/still True Americans but they unsucceeded their mission of change for the USA unlike the late Susan B. Anthony fought for women's voting rights a long time ago, or the late MLK fought civil rights in the 1950s-1960s...They were True Americans and sadly both gone.
I support innovation, but I hate corporate greed. Does this answer your question you dig?
