I find myself concerned about the recent article I read on Philly.com regarding Comcast and its lobbying efforts. Comcast seems to have a lot of time on their hands, and, according to the article, in 2013 they occupied that time by spending $18.8 million on lobbying fees.

And if it isn't enough for Comcast to dominate in the cable and internet industry, it now owns TV Networks (NBC and Telemundo), a movie studio (Universal), theme parks and sports channels. And don't forget the proposed $45.2 billion purchase of Time Warner Cable (Senate committee hearings begin soon).
