Blackmail is illegal, immoral and you are no longer needed. Shove the Super Bowl up your collective behinds. Remember when Baseball thought holding the fans up for extortion, expecting the owners to give the players a bigger piece of the pie at the threat of stopping the playoffs. Well, look at baseball today. They never recovered the losses. Baseball brings in a much smaller portion of sports money than they used too. Also, how much income do you think you will be losing because all the Cox customers that will no longer see your commercials, the businesses that will advertise with Channel 5 and channel 13 because they are seen by Cox customers. You say in your commercials that "We believe Cox will no longer carry Channel 8 after January 29" well, a lot more of your customers understand that you, channel 8, are making this demand, extorting money from local viewers. You don't really believe that you are all that do you? Well your not. You have eliminated most of the people I enjoyed watching anyway. I can asure you that you will not be missed. I will stay with Cox and I watch movies for the most part anyway. My wife enjoys your news shows, but she can watch the other channels. Goodbye to bad blood. Extortion! You should be ashamed.
I was watching a recorded tv show tonight and a commercial on channel 8 news had something about the .99 cents stores selling something for more than 99 cents. Occasionally I see some items higher but I don't think its a problem. I am assuming some one complained and asked you to investigate it. I wonder if the people who complained also told you that they have many items marked 2 for 99 cents. I bet no one has complained about that.
One more thing, food for thought. Buy something at the 99 cents store and read the price of the item on the receipt. The price is like at the gas stations (99.9) So should the name of the store be almost a dollar store, or just under a buck store??
