What I meant by "broadcast" and "broadcasting" in that message was
terrestrial, over-the-air television and radio.  While Time Warner has
extensive interests in cable television, both as an MSO and as the owner or
part-owner of several cable channels, and is also a major player in
television production and syndication, the company does not own any
over-the-air television or radio stations.  I hope this clears things up.
