    Comcast Doesn't Like the Free Market

    "Unfortunately, like net neutrality, the quest for the basest of standards will somehow be framed as a "partisan" debate, causing many to lose the plot. And pandering to the Comcast status quo will be framed as some sort of heroic pledge to phony free market ideals none of the regulators or companies backing this effort actually believe in."

    It always pisses me off when people use Comcast as an example of why we the free market doesn't work and how we need more government regulation to protect consumers from the greedy capitalists. Comcast is actually an example of a corporate oligarchy colluding with bought and paid for politicians to protect themselves from free market competition.
