I Enjoyed This Immensely

From David Carr, calling a spade a spade: Self-Serving War of Words by 2 Giants in Television [pdf]:

We know that you are fighting over lucre, not our inalienable rights as cable consumers. Pretending that you are fighting on our behalf rather than in the interests of your shareholders and executives is infantilizing and unbecoming. CBS is coming off another record year, Time Warner Cable’s stock is storming along, and the fight over retransmission fees is about how the pie is sliced, nothing more.
