FROM THIS EPISODE

After a three-game sweep this weekend in San Francisco, the Dodgers are back in first place… but only Time-Warner subscribers have been able to watch Kershaw, Ramirez, Puig and the rest of what could be a World Series team. Local members of Congress say Time-Warner is “holding consumers hostage,” and they want the FCC to step in. So far the Dodgers aren’t talking; will they ask Time Warner to let other cable companies in on the deal?

Also, children from Central America may not be welcome in Murietta, but the City of Bell says, “bring them on.” We’ll talk to the Mayor, who says providing shelter is a way to make up for municipal scandal.

Is Time-Warner Cable Monopolizing the Dodgers? 16 MIN, 38 SEC

Major League Baseball means Big Money: In the next 25 years, the Dodgers will get more than $8 billion from Time-Warner Cable. But it only serves 30% of the LA market. So far, no other major distributor will pay what Time-Warner’s asking to show the games, which leaves 70% of the LA market blacked out. Is Time-Warner cable monopolizing the Dodgers?

Bell Takes a Stand on Temporary Housing for Undocumented Children 6 MIN, 15 SEC
The number of undocumented children arriving in the US from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras has now reached 61,000 in just nine months. In Murietta, demonstrators have told them to go home. The Planning Commission of Escondido, in San Diego County, has turned down a permit to build a shelter. In the City of Bell, it’s a different story.
