Comcast ‘Presumptuous and Arrogant’

Posted on | November 21, 2010 | 2 Comments

No, it’s not somebody complaining about their cable bill. It’s federal regulators talking about the NBC takeover:

Comcast is still in negotiations with the government over its proposed takeover of NBC Universal, but that did not stop the cable company from announcing a new management slate for the entertainment giant last week.
That announcement displeased regulators, according to two government officials with knowledge of the negotiations. In September, the companies said in a statement that they would make no further personnel announcements “until the deal-closing process and timing is certain.”
“For a deal this large, and one that hasn’t been approved, Comcast’s behavior is presumptuous and arrogant,” one of the officials said.

Hmmm. “Presumptuous and arrogant.” Let’s see if Keith Olbermann names Comcast “Worst Person in the World.”

I’m holding my breath.
