Comcastrophe: The decision was handed down moments ago,1 and you should be mad as hell.
The FCC just blessed the merger of Comcast, the nation’s largest cable and home Internet provider, with NBC Universal. The Justice Department approved the merger, too, leading to the unprecedented consolidation of media and Internet power in the hands of one company.
There’s no way to sugarcoat it. Wherever you live, the Comcast-NBC merger is a disaster.
