FCC Tweets MLB Scores Due to Cablevision and Fox Standoff

| by Alex Groberman

Because Fox Television and Cablevision couldn't reach a contractual agreement about broadcasting rights on Oct. 15, many fans were left without a way to watch Game 3 of the NLCS Wednesday night.

Enter: Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Rather than doing something that would, you know, get the channels back to Cablevision subscribers, the FCC took the new-age approach of “tweeting” the scores from the Philadelphia Phillies-San Francisco Giants game. Because you know, people who could read the FCC’s tweets wouldn't be able to access live-blogs or sports scores via the other ­one trillion options available on the internet.

That being said, over 350,000 people follow the FCC’s Twitter account (why?) so maybe the government agency knows what its doing over there.
