(CNN) -- News Corp. pulled the plug on Cablevision customers Saturday, blacking out more than 3 million households in the New York area over a programming fee dispute. The blackout affects Fox 5 and My9, Charles Schueler, Cablevision's vice president of communications, said in a statement. Sports fans could be left in the dark if an agreement is not reached soon. They could miss Saturday's Game 1 of the National League Championship Series, featuring the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants.

I'm sure the echo chamber disagrees.
