I don't agree.  These negotiations are an attempt to grab cash from  
cable TV subscribers who have been getting these over-the-air TV  
stations for free since they went on the air.  The stations owe their  
existence to their use of the public airwaves.  If I were calling my  
cable company about this, I'd be telling them to stand up to the TV  
stations and don't pay a cent.
