Netflix faces House of Cards backlash

By Brian Stelter, CNN

The calls started coming on Tuesday, when snow was in the forecast for the nation's capital.

"If/when DC shuts down for blizzard Thursday, Netflix would be smart to make new 'House of Cards' available one day early," tweeted Alex Conant, the press secretary for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
