Time Warner Threatening To Cut Jon Stewart At Midnight

Considering that many of the people (and all of the youth vote?) who voted for Barry Obama got all their “facts” from pseudo-intellectual comics like Stewart,  Stephen Colbert, and Bill Maher, this would not be a bad thing at all.

Time Warner Cable subscribers could lose “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Dora the Explorer” and Jon Stewart at midnight tonight if the cable company fails to agree on a new contract with one of its biggest suppliers. Viacom Inc. has threatened to pull its programming in a high-stakes showdown over pricing. Nearly 2 million homes in the Los Angeles area that are customers of Time Warner Cable Inc. could lose such Viacom channels as Nickelodeon, MTV, VH-1, Comedy Central, Spike, TV Land and BET. Viacom blamed the cable company for the stalemate. “We’ve been attempting to negotiate in good faith but they seem to have taken it to the brink. Unfortunately, we are now at an impasse,” said Philippe Dauman, chief executive of Viacom. The company’s two-year contract with Time Warner, the nation’s second-largest cable company, which provides service to 12.3 million homes, expires at midnight.

Then again, the so called “news” they were getting from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and most of the newspapers and mags wasn’t much, if any, better so what can you expect.
