Time Warner wins round

Published on .

A U.S. district court judge has blocked the city of New York from carrying the Fox News Channel on its cable TV channels. The city acted after Time Warner, which owns the city's largest cable system, refused to carry the Fox channel. The city channel usually carries government-related and educational programming, but the city said it acted to prevent loss of jobs if the new Fox channel was crippled by being shut out of New York. District Court Judge Denise Cote, granting a temporary injunction, said the city's action violated the First Amendment.
