Senator Bill Larkin (R-C-I, Cornwall-on-Hudson) today issued the following statement regarding the ongoing retransmission consent dispute between CBS and Time Warner Cable:
“This dispute has been going on for far too long and needs to end. CBS viewers and Time Warner Cable customers deserve better and shouldn’t have to put up with disruptions, blockages and blackouts. I urge both companies to come together, hash out their differences, and resolve this matter as quickly as possible.”
