TWC should only be responsible for getting a good representation of what the station is sending to them. With your understating you'll want them to do the producing as well very soon. :-)
Let me see if I understand what you are suggesting here.
A consumer goes to Dillards, Belks, Louries, or other clothing store and purchases an article of clothing. They get home and discover that it is defective, i.e., a zipper appears to be coming undone or there is a hole in the garment. Since the clothing store is only selling the consumer a "good representation" (whatever that means) of the manufacturers goods, should the consumer then contact the manufacturer of the clothing directly for proper handling of the problem? Or should they contact the store?
You go to the grocery store and buy a melon. You get home, cut it open and it is rotten inside. Do you track down the farmer or distributor of the melon for resolution of the problem or do you look to the store? After all, the store is only selling a "good representation" of the farmer or distributors goods.
Based on my interpretation of what you advocate here, you would suggest contacting the clothing manufacturer or farmer/distributor for rectification of these problems. Am I right or wrong?
By the way, what did I understate?
And, no, I don't want them producing anything....they have a hard enough time getting what they are doing now right.
