DirecTV and WCVB (Hearst) at odds

Well, I consider it "high stakes negotiation" from a business standpoint, 
but "bullying" the viewers into making panic calls to their TV providers. 
Keep the negotiations in the conference room. I think involving the 
customers is sleazy and a really cheap move.

I talked with a Time-Warner who says their customer service lines 
are clogged with abusive viewer calls. All the rep. can say," I'm sorry but 
it's out of my hands."
