How’s this for a scary headline? “Behind calm veneer, PBS stations fight bitterly.” It’s WEDU vs. WUSF in the Tampa Tribune‘s story. What’s the fight about? Oh, just “viewers, sponsors, programs and even their very existence on cable TV channel lineups,” according to the Tribune. It quotes Shelly Palmer, New York chapter president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, as saying: “What you’re seeing in Tampa is the first border skirmish in what will literally be a death match between cable companies and local stations across America.”
