84 Of 97 Congress Representatives Supporting NBC/Comcast Merger Took Comcast Money

I can’t work up any real outrage over this, because really, did anyone think that big business deals like this are anything but bought and paid for in Washington? But seriously, guys, you could stand to be a little more discreet about things.

I mean honestly. When 84 out of 97 reps supporting the bill can be shown with little effort to have taken money from the company about which they’re supposed to be impartial, it makes us all look bad.

The donations ranged from $1000 to $25000, and can be cross-referenced with the letter of support linked here (PDF).
