Cablevision is still kicking mad over losing Meredith-owned CBS affil WFSB in parts of CT. Case in point, it made its 2nd filing over the blackout at the FCC Friday. This time it filed a bad faith complaint against the broadcaster, telling the FCC that it needs to separate negotiations for carriage of the channel in Litchfield and New Haven Counties from Fairfield County (which receives NY’s WCBS). Meredith scoffed at the claims, arguing that CVC could be providing WFSB’s signal for what its paying its “high-priced New York and D.C. lawyers.” More on the dispute here.
