I am writing to voice my opposition to the proposed Comcast-NBC merger.
A merger of this size would give one company unprecedented control over media content and
platforms. It would allow the largest cable and Internet access provider to control one of the nation's
largest media companies. It would also give Comcast-NBC an incentive to prioritize its own online
content over other content and stifle the free flow of Internet traffic.
That's too much power for one company, and it threatens competition and innovation at a moment
when new forms of online video delivery are emerging.
This merger would negatively affect competition and prompt a new wave of media consolidation as
other companies scramble to match Comcast-NBC's market power, making these problems even
A bigger, more powerful Comcast will do nothing to address the pressing need for better media in our
communities and our democracy. The FCC must stop this merger.
