The "United Nations as world dictator"D conspiracy theory is pure John Birch stuff from the 1950's (although the idea that most of North America will be made off- limits to humans does show a bizarre bit of creativity). Mr. Beck has a right to his own opinions but he doesn't have a right to his own facts. May common sense prevail.

But when retransmission consent is coupled with other outdated federal regulations that grant broadcasters a monopoly_in_ their markets, the owners of local broadcast stations drive up their carriage fees as high as possible. USA Communications has reached the point where we are no longer willing to go along with the status quo, which amounts to extortion that only causes our customers to pay higher cable rates for essentially the same product. USA Comn4unications is more than willing to pay a fair and reasonable rate for local programming. We have reached agreements with local broadcast stations including KGTV, KFMB, XETV and KNSD many times in the past with no disruption to service. In the current environment, we must refuse to increase our customers' cable bills because multibillion dollar media corporations' national, if not global, reach are able to take advantage of a broken, Concerning Property and Liberty, an Opinion piece by' Darrel Beck, in last week's issue: since when could anyone summarize 200 to 250 years of America's land-management history in 16 short paragraphs? Without interpreting enormous swaths of that history according to their personal philosophy? Without defining any number of terms according to their personal dictionary?

Although we hope to resolve this issue with no disruption to service, we are convinced the time has come for independent cable operators to draw a line in the sand. Manyofthese broadcastgroups are publicly held companies. Every quarter they boast to investors about the unbelievable increases they are seeing in retransmission revenue. This found money doesn't grow on trees: It's taken from the pockets of independent cable operators and their subscribers, our customers.
