    I wrote this to Viacom suggest you do something similar: You misrepresented yourself. I will now go to any and all blogs I can to tell the true story. I called and wrote Time Warner Cable to demand the return of shows I watch all the time. The truth is you are making great money from the cable companies, while they lose money and your trying to gouge additional money out of them. Well, I guess I can lose my shows at YOUR foolishness. Like my grandmother would have said, “Shame on you!”

    I’ve read Viacom’s press statement about their plans to pull the MTV/Nickelodeon/Comedy Central networks from the air if Time Warner Cable does not meet their demands for increased fees/revenue. Viacom’s sense of corporate responsibility, trying to lay the blame on Time Warner Cable, is shameful and atrocious. They’ve stated that they expect cable customers to find TWC’s resistance to your demands “outrageous.” No, it is Viacom that I find outrageous. CHARGE THE ADVERTISERS MORE, not the viewer. The consumers and viewers of Viacom’s shows are not commodities with whom they can trade on the value of their company. We should not be the ones who add value to Viacom’s bottom line. Too bad if their sales margins are declining. I for one would rather loose their networks forever than have to pay a higher cable bill. If Viacom can’t agree to TWC’s terms… I say good riddance.
