Senator Franken Concerned About Comcast Time Warner Merger

(Washington, DC) -- Senator Al Franken isn't thrilled with the proposed 45-billion dollar merger of the nation's two largest cable companies. The Minnesota Democrat has sent a letter to the Justice Department expressing his concerns that the combination of Comcast and Time Warner will result in higher prices, fewer choices and worse service. On CNN, Franken said the fact that the two companies have boasted that they don't have any customers who share ZIP codes is proof that there is too little competition for cable television.
