A report by Chicago Media Action, written by Mitchell Szczepanczyk
Chicago Media Action releases the results of an analysis of comments of a Chicago forum eld by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC0 on July 13, 2010, on the proposed merger of Comcast and NBC Universal. Among the key findings of the analysis:
* Only eight persons who commented specifically approved the proposed Comcast/NBC Universal merger
*None of those who spoke approvingly of Comcast mentioned any reasons relevant to the proposed merger in favor of it; the only reasons offered were discursions to the question of the merger, mostly by Chicago-area nonprofit organizations who received Comcast support.
*34 commenters offered a wide range of criticism and concerns of the proposed merger, and represented a more diverse set of concerned groups and individuals.
