No magic cable fairy just made every household in a community be connected. That cost money, a LOT of money.
It's easy to understand why cable companies want to control public opinion. Using words like "cable fairy" doesn't convince me that the cable companies aren't making obscene profits. Try to come up with some substantial proof that the cable companies are suffering and I'll take it all back. They are nearly monopolies, powerful, and with their control on media, have undue influence in public option about this matter. It's time that a federal agency stood up for the public good and I applaud their action.
