“Congress Never Has to Wait for the Cable Guy,” so says Bloomberg Businessweek.
Todd Shields, Stephanie Green and Laura Litvan wrote about Comcast’s cozy relationship with DC, especially to the White House. It was published online March 6.
They reported that Comcast executive vice president David Cohen “raised at least $500,000 for Obama's 2012 reelection,” and hosted a fund raiser for him at their home in Philadelphia. The story also quoted President Barack Obama saying at that fundraiser, “I've been here so much, the only thing I haven't done in this house is have seder dinner.”
Bloomberg Businessweek ran a front-page attack on the NRA for its March 18-25 edition. Much of the story was spent interviewing the owners of the Mossberg gun factory from New Haven, Conn., who find the NRA’s position “ill timed and graceless.”
According to the article, not all gun makers take as strong of a position on gun control regulation as the NRA does, but those who disagree are afraid of speaking up. Businessweek claims that fear of NRA instigated consumer boycotts and the prospect of sales from those concerned about stricter gun control laws keep gun manufacturers in line.
“Who’s afraid of the NRA? Gun makers, that’s who,” the Businessweek article, written by Assistant Managing Editor and Senior Writer Paul M. Barrett, declared. The cover reads “DON’T TREAD ON THE NRA” with pictures of bullet holes tearing through it.
