David Weigel at Bloomberg.com reports a PAC called Conservative War Chest, is arranging an ad buy against Comcast in five swing states – Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The two-minute ad warns that Comcast is becoming “America’s most powerful and militant left-wing political force” and conservaitves should “fight the corruption of American journalism.”
"Comcast needs Obama administration approval to merge with Time/Warner cable, giving it access to two-thirds of American’s homes,” spokesman Mike Flynn said in a statement. “The last time Comcast needed a government favor we got Al Sharpton five nights a week. What will we get in exchange for a deal worth billions to Brian Roberts and other owners of Comcast?"
