Comcast, the nation's largest cable operator with almost 25 million subscribers, has been looking to increase its content holdings for several years. In NBC Universal it would get its hands on not only a big broadcast network and movie studio, but also several powerful cable channels, including USA, Syfy, CNBC, MSNBC and Bravo.
That would be incredible. My guess is that the FCC would never allow it. Could you imagine a conservative leaning Comcast CEO John Malone allowing MSNBC and CNBC to continue down their path of fringe left wing rhetoric and President Obama worshipfulness? My guess is that moonbat commentators like Kieth Oberman and Rachel Maddow would be fired based on their plummeting ratings while other News networks commentators such as O'Reilly and Beck have only themselves to battle it out with ratings wise. I think an owner with an eye for making money would probably clean house at NBC news and restore at least the appearance of journalism to the newsroom.
