It's called inflation. That's why these types of stories are sensationalistic.

It's not sensationalistic since the average rate of inflation is 6%. Actually the last few years, there hasn't been any inflation, but that hasn't stopped cable companies from raising rates.

I couldn't care less about the CPI, I'm talking about real inflation.

Not true. Inflation measured by the narrowly focused CPI has been around 3% for the last few years. The "real" rate of inflation is more than double that.
