I wish to apologize to the Spokane NBC and Fox affiliate personnel.  The statement I made in the crawl when the stations had yet to reach an agreement proving how little they care for their viewers was not aimed at the rank and file.  It was aimed at those that would charge for redistribution of a signal to their own area's viewers.  My view of a TV station doing anything other than saying "take my signal and pass it on to my viewers, please!" is well known.  ANY station that wishes to charge a nickel to have their signal distributed to their viewers should have their license revoked for refusing to serve their area.  Unfortunately, that is not the way the broadcasters view it.  The fact that the redistributors charges for the signal is irrelevant.  Unless the station in question wishes to pay the full amount of backhaul, uplink and lost opportunity costs to the disturber.  This is a personal opinion.  Again I apologize if anyone other than the folks directly responsible for the negotiations took offense at my commentary.

What I said about station (owners and managers) not caring about their viewers still goes for all the station (owners and managers) still refusing to grant permission for retransmission due to monetary compensation to retransmit the signal to THEIR OWN marketing area!  If the hold-up is because the station wishes to blackmail the distributor into carrying another cable channel, that is even worse! (FOX O&O, Hearst, etc)
