FOX-TWC dispute update

Today, News Corporation Deputy Chairman-President-COO Chase Carey rejected Senator John Kerry's proposals of arbitration and an interim carriage agreement, even though Time Warner Cable chairman Glenn Britt favored the idea.

Remember, if an agreement is not reached by the time 2010 arrives, all of FOX's programming will be unavailable for TWC's subscribers.

In the meantime, TWC has extended its retransmission consent agreement with Raycom Media for several Midwest and South stations until January 15th.

Various sources contributed to this report.
