Donald Trump Takes a Side in CBS-Time Warner Cable Dispute LA Times

Donald Trump is wading into the contract dispute between CBS and Time Warner Cable, and he's directing his anger at the cable operator for blocking access to golf programming, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Trump took to Twitter to complain about the CBS blackout, saying he was unable to watch the PGA Championship on New York's WCBS-TV.

"Time Warner, I am going to be switching many of my buildings to another service -- this is ridiculous!" Trump tweeted Monday. He also complained that the cable company isn't giving "major discounts" to customers because of the blackout.

Time Warner Cable addressed his complaint in a statement, writing, "We're sorry Mr Trump is upset but we would hope that, as a businessman, he understands why we're focused on keeping our costs down so we can keep our customers' bills reasonable."
