NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- A moment of clarity: I never said the present cable model is fair; I'm just saying it's not going anywhere anytime soon. That's the sentiment I thought I expressed earlier this week in HBO Hates Netflix (And You Should Too). But, based on the cards and letters I received, some cats didn't take it that way.I forget who it was (forgive me, I read hundreds of articles a day and forget to Pocket all of the worthwhile ones), but somebody wrote that if cable and satellite let you pick and choose channels instead of buying a package of 200, most of which you never watch, you would end up paying as much, if not more than you do now.
