Possbile unauthorized merger of multiple templates/vandalism[edit]

I been noticing on some of the pages of the TV stations owned by the Meredith Corporation that this template contains stations owned by other companies (mainly those owned by Hubbard Broadcasting), and also states that Meredith has acquired Metro Goldwyn Mayer and AMC Networks International. However, I have not been able to find any relevant sources stating that Meredith has indeed made such a substantial acquisition that nearly quadruples their holdings. The 45 most recent edits have all come from the same IP address with the first two parts of the address constant (User:194.135.161.250, User:194.135.160.87, and User:194.135.160.78.), along with a registered user of Wikipedia (User:Asibasira) who attempted to revert this template to the correct version, but whoever used one of the IP addresses listed above would restore it to the current version. I recommend that this template be protected to avoid further vanadlism, and place a track on the IP addresses to flag them whenever this situation occurs again. Thanks!
