Cablevision customers who have been trying to see News Corp.-owned channels like WNYW 5 and WWOR 9 since last Saturday have instead been able to see Cablevision's "News Corp.'s transmission fees are too damn high" message (video). Cablevision claims that News Corp. is asking for too much money ($150 million, an increase from previous fees of $70 million) while News Corp. says Cablevision isn't even trying to negotiate! Well, Danny Spiegel & Guy Patton have a video up at UCB Comedy that examines the subtext of Cablevision's message:
