Your Government at Work

October 21, 2010

Having grown up in The Bronx, I would say that the greatest benefit of leaving that finest of the boroughs is severing any connection to Cablevision. The less one has to do with any enterprise run by the Dolans, the better. I feel for the Knick and Ranger fan, it is extremely unlikely that they will ever win as long as the idiot dauphin of the Dolan clan is running the show. Anyway, because of the fight between Cablevision and Fox, how do you pick sides in that dog fight?, Bronxites can receive neither channel 5 nor 9. Much as I like Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and endless reruns of The Office it doesn’t seem like much of a loss to me. However, there are a few folk who like watching football, and, much more importantly, the Baseball playoffs are being broadcast, in part, on Fox.

This is where the government enters the picture, because they don’t want Cablevision viewers to miss any of the playoff action the FCC has started tweeting game updates. Here is an account of some of their tweets. One example:

We’re filling in the baseball void for those without Fox-Cablevision. Matt Cain pitching a beauty. SF up 3-0 http://fcc.gov/consumer 7:28 PM Oct 19th via web .

    I just now hung up the phone with Verizon. I have fired Cablevision from the Jersey place, for the second time. I enjoy firing the Dolans.

    Wait, the FCC is officially tweeting score updates?

    I guess it’s more useful than 99% of the things they probably do, but really, that is what the FCC is doing?
