John Daly of The Daly Planet posted a tweet saying there a 6 p.m. deadline is in effect. The Monitor speculates the truce will extend at least through the Sugar Bowl, starting at 7:30 p.m
According to the Wall Street Journal, however, the two combatants are "getting closer to a new television-programming deal that could be finalized as early as Friday night."
That possibility hasn't yet filtered down to the grunts, however. A Twitter post by Bianca Janosevic observes "Just saw the anchors on Fox 5 news take a dig at Time Warner and give out the # for calling on behalf of Fox."
(We can all agree that viewers will have to pay more money for their media fixes. The only question is how much?)
UPDATE: A deal has been cut. Would you pay Fox a dollar a month to watch their programming?
