More Telecommunications BS....

Channel3000.com - News - Reality Check: Who's Behind TV Ads About Cable Prices:
MADISON, Wis. -- A multi-million dollar television advertising campaign is aiming to sway the public and lawmakers to change telecommunications policy.
The 32-member TV4US coalition has few household names except AT&T, formally SBC. But is has big bucks based on how many TV and newspaper ads are scattered across America.
A coalition spokesperson wouldn't tell WISC-TV how much money was being spent on the campaign. It aims to open up cable video service to phone companies like AT&T and Verizon.
In one ad, viewers see a red line slowly rising diagonally across the screen while the narrator talks about how the price of everything is rising. 'If it seems like the things you pay for keep going up, you're right,' said the narrator in the ad.
