MATTHEW CONTINETTI: How Comcast Bought The Democratic Party. “It is something of a political irony that Republicans, who for ideological reasons are pro-business, have not raised questions about, or objections to, the conjoining of two Democratic institutions into a media trust.

As we’ve seen with the RIAA and the MPAA, Republicans aren’t willing to go after big businesses, even big businesses that are their mortal enemies.
