John Kerry Pledges to Keep Fox on the Air


Time Warner Cable and Fox still haven't settled their payment dispute, but one man is fighting to avoid a blackout: John Kerry has promised that if Fox does pull its signal at the midnight deadline, he’ll "ask the FCC to intervene and mandate continued carriage." Why is a prominent U.S. senator getting involved in the tiff? It could be because he’s the chairman of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Communication, Technology, and the Internet. It could also be because he really doesn't want to miss The Cleveland Show. [CompanyTown/LAT]
