Critics Unite To Oppose Comcast-Time Warner Merger

December 8, 2014

(Undated)  --  A coalition of critics is uniting to try and stop the proposed Comcast-Time Warner Merger.  The group includes satellite provider Dish Network, conservative commentator Glenn Beck's "The Blaze" website, and consumer advocacy organizations Public Knowledge and Consumer Action.  They say the 45-billion dollar merger of the two biggest cable and broadband providers threatens competition and would violate federal antitrust laws.  The opponents say the merger would give Comcast-Time Warner control of the highest-speed broadband available to 40-percent of U.S. homes. Comcast currently operates in much of west central Illinois.
