SureWest wasn’t one for inauguration

-A +A
SureWest committed a gaffe of considerable weight by failing to provide all its cable customers with HBO’s presentation of “We Are One,” the Obama inaugural celebration at the Lincoln Memorial broadcast Sunday, Jan. 18. HBO widely publicized it was encouraging cable/satellite TV outlets to offer this historical event to all; not limiting it to HBO subscribers only. SureWest has displayed a blatant disregard for the community it serves and from which it profits. SureWest is either complacent (a poor stance to take in the current economic climate) or, at the extreme, harbors an agenda of divisiveness. I hope it is the former. I fear it is the latter.
