Coalition Forms to Fight the Comcast-Time Warner Cable Merger
Ashley Allen / 2 years ago
A collection of disparate groups, ranging from the Parents Television Council to the Writers Guild of America, have formed a coalition called StopMegaComcast to kill the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable.
“A competitive and diverse media and technology marketplace is fundamental to the health of our economy and our democracy,” a statement the StopMegaComcast website reads. “The Comcast-TWC merger threatens competition, runs counter to our antitrust and communications laws and should be rejected by federal regulators. This much power concentrated in the hands of one company would be frightening even for the most trustworthy of companies. And Comcast is definitely not that.”
Other members of StopMegaComcast include Dish Network, Public Knowledge, the Consumer Federation of America.
