Re: Network Affiliation Tango, Part Deux

I think this issue will be moot within a couple of years. I forsee the
major broadcast networks trying to purchase as many of their affiliates
as possible. I wouldn't be surprised if the FCC eventually permits
networks to have an O & O in every market. This will lead to the big
networks each having some 200 O & O's, and NO affiliates!

Also, having a network own all their affiliates will mean that they can
stop giving out affiliate compensation.
