Detroit News:

A plan by WADL-TV to broadcast Sunday's concert by striking musicians of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is not meant to express favoritism toward the musicians, the station manager said Friday. Responding to a letter from DSO lawyers apparently intended to discourage the broadcast of the 3 p.m. Sunday concert at Christ Church Cranbrook, station manager Steve Antoniotti said: "We're merely trying to expose the quality of these musicians to people who haven't had the opportunity to hear them, and to show what a community asset might be lost in this labor dispute." But Michael Schwartz, an attorney for the station, replied more sharply. In a statement issued Thursday, Schwartz said DSO management had "hired a New York law firm which sent a letter to WADL, ominously suggesting that the station might end up with liability in connection with the broadcast." "We are disappointed that the management of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra should seek to instruct us on how we are to fulfill our responsibilities to our viewing public and that they should be expending scarce resources to hire an expensive New York law firm in a misguided attempt to create obstacles to the public's being able to view and hear a performance by an illustrious group of musicians."...
