Quit whining about this, Craig.

John Shutt gave you a perfectly valid explanation as top why things
would not go as you think with a la carte. I know it will fall on deaf
ears, because it has done so countless times in the past.

While John's explanation is valid - given the FACT that one cannot buy cable programming ala carte today - his explanation assumes the worst possible outcome, should ala carte be forced on the multichannel services.

Frankly I do not agree with him, or you.

See my response to John.
