The cable trade association, NCTA, launched an organization Wednesday funded exclusively by cable, co-chaired by a DC Lobbyist and one outside organization. The kicker here is that the site misleadingly lists a variety of groups that cable alleges oppose video choice for consumers. And I’m being generous by saying the site is misleading. To see C4CC board member Hector Flores’ name used as a “critic” of video choice is just laughable.
In the same week that cable attacks video choice supporters, they turn around and manipulate statements made by organizations who truly care about their constituencies and pass it off as legitimate.
Cable is losing the battle of ideas, so they’re going after anyone they can.
