Comcast’s proposed $45.2-billion acquisition of Time Warner Cable has been criticized by angry customers, consumer advocacy groups, and even some members of Congress.

But Comcast has plenty of support, too, much of it from politicians and organizations that benefit from its political and charitable donations.

“donations”….

  1. Ya know, Comcast and TWC both already suck and hardly compete with each other. Does the world actually get worse if they merge? We don’t need them to compete with each other, we need new competitors.

  2. Agreed. The problem is they can make it very difficult for new entrants into the market.
