TV is not utiliTY

Any company has a right to defend its assets, as long as its not illegal. Cable companies have small overbuilders, fiber, satellite, and copper for a competitive environment.

Capitalism has nothing to do with the first amendment.

I disagree. When a company or group of companies become a dominate force in society it is proper government implement rules to maximize the public good.

We seem to have forgotten Capitalism is a means to an end, not the end in and of itself. Capitalism is the best way we have found to mobilize capital and labor. Unfortunately we seem to have turned it into a religion making all other human activity subordinate.

True, but they are not out to defend their assets. Their (future) profits are what they are trying to protect.
