As ridiculous as these frequent carriage disputes are, the sad thing is, stuff like this has become the norm these days, and it's not going to get better any time soon if ever.

Should be as good of an excuse as any to invest in a decent outdoor antenna if you're within a station's Grade B contour area. (Of course, the cell phone providers will put a complete end to over-the-air TV someday when they start complaining yet again about how "there's not enough spectrum" for data-capped mobile broadband.)
Isn't it nice how deregulation has brought us such oversized and dangerously overleveraged broadcast owners? (Yes, I'm looking at YOU, Sinclair, Nexstar, Cume-U-Less, and iFart!)

Who cares? I can get CBS programming elsewhere and could care less if I couldn't watch any of TV-5s local programming, like its news. PUKE!!
