The article focuses on the case between WRNN-TV and Cablevision Systems. The case sprang when the U.S. Federal Communications Commission granted WRNN a must-carry status in Long Island, to the disappointment of Cablevision. Cablevision lawyer Henk Brands contends that WRNN is a home-shopping station that has made a business model of seeking must-carry rights from cable companies. WRNN counsel Andrew McBride argues that the station may face financial ruin if it cannot secure carriage.
