DC RSN MASN is trying its hardest to put pressure on Comcast, working with DC politicians and media for coverage to convince Comcast to pony up the cash to carry the net’s Nationals games. Tomorrow, 2 DC city council members are planning to introduce legislation to try and tie a carriage agreement together with the MSO’s license to operate in the city, the Wash Post reports. The paper devoted one of its Sun editorials to the dispute, complaining that the choice is "between a huge cable corporation and a baseball owner who is not very popular in Washington." Meanwhile, MASN bought a strip ad in the Sun paper asking fans to use its website (http://www.masntv/contactfcc) to "tell the FCC you want Comcast to carry the games."
