Comcast paid politicians to pressure the FCC to OK the NBC-Universal merger, which created a media monopoly. They want to control who can broadcast what and where, which determines what you get in terms of entertainment and information:

How many examples of greed and corruption must you see before you act?

In January 2011 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted 4-1 to approve the merger of Comcast and NBC-Universal. This "created one of the largest media conglomerates in American history, which critics warn could limit the variety of voices heard by the public and threaten the Internet's role as a forum for free exchange of information." Their OK came after FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski received this letter urging approval signed by 97 members of Congress:

Of those 97 Democratic and Republican politicians, 88 "had received money from Comcast's political action committee, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics."
