CLICK: KOMO being greedy with rate demands

I am a news hound. I cannot live without news.

KOMO 4 News is one of a couple trusted news sources I get my daily news from, and the Click Network is the cable provider.

Click is a public entity and not-for-profit. A rate increase like the one proposed by KOMO-TV is unacceptable and would require multiple cable TV customer rate increases to cover. Customers are strapped for money; they do not need the rate hikes. Shame on KOMO-TV.

All local broadcast stations except KOMO-TV have agreed to reasonable rates that are acceptable to Click. Why cannot KOMO-TV?

Fisher Broadcasting reported high revenues in its third quarter financials and should not squeeze customers for even more money. KOMO-TV is being greedy.

Message to KOMO: lower your rates or you will lose viewers.
