The MSO Mediacom "has sent the FCC another letter asking it to step in to prevent blackouts during retrans disputes," writes our friend John Eggerton in Multichannel News.

The article notes, "Mediacom is not taking the Federal Communication Commission’s ‘no authority’ position about intervening in retransmission-consent disputes for an answer and even says it might try to get an independent panel of legal experts to vet what it deems to be the agency’s so far unsatisfactory response."

"Mediacom has made several entreaties to the FCC in connection with its ongoing retrans battle with [TV broadcast company] LIN," the article notes.
