Disney vs. Time Warner Cable: There goes Labor Day weekend

The scuffling between Disney and Time Warner Cable over the carriage deal that expires on Sept. 1 is heating up in the usual fashion: Dueling websites aimed at consumers. I wonder how many consumers, rather than reporters, actually visit these sites?

On a sleepy Friday afternoon, I don't have the energy to write about retransmission consent and its discontents. All I'm thinking about is how this spat better not bleed into Labor Day weekend, which follows on the heels of the Wednesday, Sept. 1 expiration of the Mouse's existing contract. Oh boy.

Here are the website links for Time Warner Cable and Disney. Read 'em and weep. For me.
