The state of tech journalism is starting to become a serious problem for society.
As of the time of this journal entry, I have not heard any old media outlet mention Comcast's crusade against network neutrality as background for the merger story.
This deal demonstrates Comcast's confidence that they can stop efforts to preserve the neutral nature of the internet. Preferred delivery of NBC/Universal content is the aim of the purchase of a 51% stake from GE.
If network neutrality is an administration-wide goal, the FTC should stop this deal; or, at the very least, delay approval until the FCC rulemaking is complete.
