Common Cause Urges FCC to Reject Charter - Time Warner Cable Deal

WASHINGTON - Amid published reports that the Federal Communications Commission is poised to approve Charter's monopolistic bid to acquire Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks, Common Cause urged FCC commissioners Thursday to step back and reject the merger plan.

"Americans need more competition, not more consolidation. The sad history of cable mergers shows that Big Cable getting bigger benefits shareholders but badly disserves the public interest," said former FCC Commissioner and Common Cause Special Adviser Michael Copps.
