After reading Ann McFeatters’ column “Reining in Comcast’s appetite” [Opinion, March 21], I just have to say that I agree wholeheartedly.
Comcast has got to be stopped. The very idea that we have to pay to watch TV in our own homes is ludicrous, and the cost is outrageous and getting worse. And, like McFeatters says, if the merger that Comcast is proposing is accomplished, it would mean consumers’ bills would likely rise even faster.
Also, if the merger is permitted, Comcast would control what programs a large percentage of the country sees. They already control what we’re allowed to see and the bills are already way too high. As an American I resent that. I resent having to pay for channels I don’t watch and am restricted from others I do want to watch unless I pay extra for them.
This whole cable business has gotten out of hand. We have to let our feelings be known. We need to send a message to President Obama that we as Americans and consumers do not approve of Comcast’s desired annexation of Time Warner.
Thank you McFeatters for your intelligent, insightful column.
