Sure they do - that's direct competition of (approximately) two equals. 
What I was saying is that it makes no sense for local broadcasters to try 
to compare their diversity of programming to that of satellite providers. 

They need to talk up what is *not* provided by those nationwide signals - 
real coverage on topics of local interest (whether traffic/weather/news, 
events, personalities, etc).
