Any government intervention would not only skew the process, but would color all future retransmission consent negotiations, the letter states".
And why is that such a bad thing? News Corp has a point. Keep the ******* government out of this. It already has it's hand in nearly everything we do. Smaller government, not bigger. I don't want a People's Repubic.

And again, News Corp. offered Cablevision the exact same deal other providers have agreed to. Why should Cablevision be any different? Why should they get special treatment? Riddle me that, Batman.
