QOTD: "Comcast hopes to reeducate the public and rewrite history to its benefit, winning public support for its hegemony ambitions

"Together is better" glows one ad. "See why together is better" chimes another. It all sounds like a feel good fantasy, but unfortunately we're talking about the Comcast Corp. (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable Inc. (TWC) $45.4B USD merger. The "good news" apparently is the pending deal which would combine America's two largest cable service providers, leaving America with little competition -- "Comcastic!"

It's a pretty tough sell promoting the merge given that anyone with basic reasoning skills will recognize that the the merger would seriously reduce competition in the U.S. cable television and high speed internet markets, including virtually eliminating competition altogether in some select U.S. markets.

From a national perspective the merger would put one company in control of more than a third of the broadband internet market (33 to 50 percent depending on how you define "high-speed") and roughly 30 percent of the paid television market. Remove satellite TV and Comcast would control roughly 60 percent of the cable TV market..." --Jason Mick

Doug - love ya longtime, but why are you including links to articles from almost a full year ago (Levin)?

Kelli, it was trending on BadBlue because enough people thought it was relevant to today's situation... so I popped it in.

I'll try and do better in the future :-)
