Why The FCC Is Allowing The Comcast Shakedown

from the can't-admit-they-were-wrong dept

We all know people like this. Once they’ve said something – no matter how much evidence is presented, they just can’t admit they were wrong. That seems to be the only explanation for why the government is allowing the Comcast shakedown that everyone’s been talking about recently (letting them threaten to raise cable modem rates 33% unless you agree to sign up for cable TV as well). Lots of people are complaining, but for the government to do something, they’d have to admit they were wrong when they said letting AT&T Broadband and Comcast merge wouldn’t create a monopoly.
