Dear Newspaper People:

Please note that McGlynn ENDORSED the Comcast plan. The FCC appears to have ruled against it and now Comcast has "scrapped" the proposed merger.



Last week 50 mayors from around the country announced their support for the proposed Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger. Four mayors from Massachusetts were on the list: Gary Christenson (Malden), Michael McGlynn (Medford), Daniel Rizzo (Revere), and Kevin J. Dumas (Attleboro).
In a signed letter sent to the FCC on August 21 the mayors claimed, “The combination of these two American companies will bring benefits to every affected city.”

Comcast has scrapped plans to merge with Time Warner Cable in a $45.2 billion deal that would have combined the country’s two largest cable and broadband providers, according to a Bloomberg report Thursday.
The move comes a day after the Federal Communication Commission said it planned to oppose the deal, joining lawyers from the Justice Department who felt it would not help consumers. The FCC said it would issue a “hearing designation order” that would prolong the deal, making it more difficult and expensive for Comcast.

Comcast spokeswoman Sena Fitzmaurice and Time Warner Cable spokesman Bobby Amirshahi both declined to comment. But Bloomberg reported that a formal announcement of the terminated deal would come by Friday.
