Ed Markey posted on his Facebook page about his press relelase Markey, Franken, Senate Colleagues Call on Federal Regulators to Block Massive Comcast-Time Warner Cable Deal. You can join the conversatio on his Facebook page where he said:
The Comcast-Time Warner mega merger would give Comcast too much market power and lead to fewer choices, higher prices, and even worse service for consumers in Massachusetts and across the U.S. I joined with Senators Al Franken, Senator Ron Wyden Bernie Sanders, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren & Senator Richard Blumenthal in urging DOJ & FCC to take a stand for U.S. consumers and businesses & reject the Comcast-Time Warner massive merger.
We in Sturbridge have been assuming the deal would go through, and as a result Comcast would take over for Charter here in Sturbridge. Maybe we don’t have tp assume it is a fait accompli.
