THE ULTIMATE BAN: CABLEVISION OF LONG ISLAND ACES FIGHTING

     Cablevision Systems Corp. of Long Island decided not to
offer Ultimate Fighting Championships this past Friday.  The only
other U.S. cable operator that reportedly does not offer the
bouts is InterMedia of San Francisco.  Peter Low, VP/Programming
for Cablevision: "The government has called on media companies to
act more responsibly to respond to violence on television
programs.  That's what we've done."  Ultimate Fighting had put a
full-page ad in Long Island's Newsday to urge viewers to call the
office of CEO Jim Dolan to demand the show (Jeanne Cooper,
NEWSDAY, 2/21).
