Comcast and TWC Still Trying to Merge

Time Warner and Comcast

After hopefully winning the Net Neutrality decision, I say hopefully because the telecommunication industry is still dumping money to congress trying to change the ruling, two telecommunication companies are still trying to merge. Comcast and Time Warner Cable the two biggest cable companies are trying to become one. I’d like to have someone explain to…

Canceling Cable and the Asshole Dance

TWC

Yesterday for the first time I switched from Time Warner Cable to AT&T for my television and Internet needs. It was not easy. There have been many stories on the web about the machinations these companies go through to keep you as a subscriber. Here’s one that’s funny and scary at the same time. The…

Congress Trying to Undo Net Neutrality

Upton and Walden

Our message was weak; our ground game was insufficient; we weren’t inclusive; we were behind in both data and digital; and our primary and debate…

Cable Companies Throw Money at Congress to Stop Net Neutrality

Those like myself who have fought to keep the Internet out of corporate hands are close to victory. However, the Republican controlled congress stands in the way. Never has the GOP been afraid to…

2015 National Championship I can’t believe I’m about to write these words. The Ohio State Buckeyes are the 2015 NCAA National Champions. I’m not surprised they have won the national title, they’ve done that before. I’m also not surprised they won the Big 10 title. They do that regularly. I’m not even amazed their was…
