Who's to blame for the cable conspiracy?

Everyone that has cable knows what I am talking about... in order to get a few channels that you want, you have to get a slew that you don't want and pay for the whole thing as a bundle or tier. And by pay I mean an arm and a leg.

Well cable is trying to blame the big media companies. And as cynical as I am, I can see companies like Disney and Time-Warner pulling crap like this.

Of course, cable doesn't need to "stand up" to media companies, because cable companies in most, if not all, areas have effective monopolies. It's not like I can call another cable company and see if they'll offer me a better deal.
