and an opinion discussion

Blazers fans have much angst right now with all the injuires.  What better way to vent, than to unload some negativity in Comcast's direction.  I think the Blazers fan community may have some strong opinions about Comcast's word that a merger would be pro-consumer.  Honestly we should be flogging the FCC regarding this issue an not a NYtimes blog, but awareness of the forthcoming wrongs by this merger needs to be made.  Otherwise I would make this a fanhsot and not a fanpost.

 

The key quote:

Comcast has called the merger, which the Obama administration will have to approve, “pro-competitive, pro-consumer and strongly in the public interest,” and has said it is committed to free over-the-air TV and local programming.

 

How does this quote make you Blazerfans feel?  Let's make our voices heard otherwise the whole nation will be hurt by this merger.  Democracy begins by making the public's voice heard.  Contact to the FCC can be found from the following link
