/// Time Warner Cable Takes Its Fight With CBS to the FCC
Never mind that the Federal Communications Commission has repeatedly said it has at best limited authority, if not none, to intervene in retransmission disputes, but Time Warner Cable decided to try again. In a filing made public Monday, Time Warner Cable lawyers offered “additional evidence” for what it called “the broken retransmission consent regime.” TWC is in a vicious retransmission fight with CBS. Since Aug. 2 at 5 p.m., CBS stations have been off the air on TWC cable systems in markets such as New York, Los Angeles and Dallas, affecting about 3.5 million TWC subscribers. CBS is also blocking TWC subscribers from accessing CBS Internet content.
