Chicago Media Action announces the release of an analysis of comments given in a forum in Chicago on the proposed merger of Comcast and NBC Universal by Comcast. We welcome those readers and visitors to the website who come to the website seeing this commentary.

The analysis, entitled "Comments on Comcast", is here. The press release announcing the analysis is here. The Excel spreadsheet documenting the data used in the analysis is here.

The findings are stunning, and speak to the utter paucity of Comcast's position of their proposed merger -- stating not a single merger-related reason in their defense in a hearing that was supposedly all about such reasons.
