We have a totally anti-consumer entertainment media padaigm in this country! Broadcast entertainment (originally radio, then radio and television) was paid for by commercials. Listening to and watching advertising pitchs was the price we paid for the entertainment. Under that model, the "media conglomerates" (like Viacom) should have to pay the cable companies to carry their programming instead of the other way around. And WE (the screwed consumers) shouldn't have to pay a damn cent! Under the current system, we have to listen to and watch the damn commercials PLUS pay exorbitant prices to the cable companies PLUS pay the shake-down fees the cable companies pay the multi-billion dollar media conglomerates! What a RACKET!
