Howard Cole at the LA Weekly tried to extract an apology from a Time-Warner Cable PR rep. It went about as well as you'd expect. A sampling:
What about that apology? Why not just use the two-word phrase, "we're sorry."
We are sorry that more fans don't have access to SportsNet LA. Our goal is to have full carriage for the network, and we hope that providers will come on board quickly. We are working hard to make that happen as we don't want fans to miss any more Dodgers games and programming.
Thanks for fighting the good fight, Howard, but this thing is much bigger than the fans.
