Federal inquiries aren’t as exciting as NASCAR.
You’re probably already aware of the FCC’s ongoing investigation into Comcast’s "network management" practices, which include the delaying of traffic associated with BitTorrent technology.
Well, in addition to providing horrendous customer service and strangling an already uncompetitive market through shady arrangements with apartment complex managers, Comcast has stooped to stacking the deck with hired stooges.
At a recent FCC hearing in Boston, the cable co. paid folks to stand in line and take up space so the opposition couldn’t voice their opinion. Comcast’s scabs didn’t even testify on its behalf — in fact, many of them fell asleep in their seats.
The shocking part is that Comcast admits this reprehensible behavior. Sort of, anyway. A spokesperson claims the company paid "some people" to
arrive early and hold places in the line for area Comcast workers
who wanted to attend the hearing.
If you believe that, you probably still think that Saddam was behind 911 and Jesus is coming to spirit you into the seraphic sky.
