Gannett/Dish Fight over "The Hopper"

Seems Gannett, parent company of KTHV/Channel 11, doesn't like DISH Network's "The Hopper".  According to Reuters Gannett has threatened to pull broadcasting with DISH if it doesn't block the commercial skipping feature on "The Hopper".  Gannett and DISH are in an agreement squabble in several markets including Little Rock.  "If Dish refuses to reach a deal before midnight, October 7 Dish subscribers could lose their local Gannett station and access to some of the year's best programming," Gannett said.

Spend 30 bucks, get an outside or attic antenna, point it toward Shinall Mountain and watch TV for free on all five stations: KARK, KARZ, KTHV and KTHV-2, KATV 1,2 and 3, and KLRT 1 and 2., and other stations that transmit from there. Screw Dish.

Seems like THV has other, more pressing issues as they mourn the death of one of their anchors. Peace and comfort to the family ... as much as it can be in this kind of tragedy.

Did anyone happen to see the Baboon on the morning show? I think the female anchor and anyone else on the show must have lost their senses letting one of the most vicious animals on the face of this Earth get that near to them. That was just plain stupid.
