1. So? Are you saying this to defend Comcast?
Edited on Sat Jan-22-11 05:56 PM by hlthe2b
If so, I'm sure they will be very appreciative. Just as they are to have lost a very public, very vocal thorn in their side, GONE.

Coincidence or not, I've seen a flurry of these kind of posts on boards and comment areas all over the internet. Methinks Comcast is very concerned about the backlash they are getting.

4. I'm pretty sure Comcast is NOT concerned..
Considering they've been pretty much hated by the entirety of Internet users and it hasn't stopped then from being douchebags in the past.

6. Oh, I don't think so... they are getting bad publicity & some backlash...
Enough articles from "insiders" have made it clear that they are concerned. It won't effect their merger, but it certainly can effect their $$ bottom line.

9. Probably to try to bring the KO vs Comcast
nutters a bit closer to reality, not saying it will work though.

7. What I am saying is that I think your anger is going
in the wrong direction. Keep on blaming Comcast if you want to but PLEASE you should ALSO be directing even more of your anger at the #1 culprits here.... MSNBC TV and NBC NEWS.

Believe me I hate acknowldgeing this fact myslef. I have been a loyal fan of MSNBC TV for many years now. I got so addicted I started playing MSNBCTV on Justintv in the background at work..

Jansing & Co.... Andrea Mitchell Reports... Contessa Brewer.... Nora O'Donnell (god I love her laugh!), Dylan Ratigan, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow (cry) and Lawrence O'Donnell

I watch them all..... this is killing me that I have decided to boycott MSNBC....
