Lewiston Trib: KAYU Not TW to Blame for Fiesta Snafu

Full post here

If the general manager of Spokane's Fox television outlet thinks Time Warner cable customers deserve to know why Fox programming no longer appears on their cable system, as Jon Rand says he does, he should stop hiding behind confidentiality. KAYU/Fox 28 last month required Time Warner to stop carrying its signal without paying for it after Time Warner bought the system serving the Palouse from the bankrupt Adelphia. That left Palouse television viewers without a channel carrying Fox programming, like Boise State University's Jan. 1 football victory in the Fiesta Bowl. Some incensed Time Warner customers, including those in the Coeur d'Alene area, are responding by swapping their cable service for satellite systems. If any party in this dispute deserves to suffer economically, however, it isn't Time Warner -- Jim Fisher/Lewiston Tribune.
