It must be magical to be inside your head where economies are always perfectly competitive and cable MSOs never do anything wrong. Truly, the Kool-Aid you drink is a heady brew, indeed.
Nope. Economies are never perfectly competitive, but even duopoly competition is usually better than government regulation.
MSOs have done plenty wrong, but they've done more right in the past ten years, and they deserve credit for it.
If you're upset about your pay-tv bill, that's the result of content costs, not cable profit margins; if you want to lobby for anti-trust action against content bundling, go ahead, its worth a try.
