deal should be voided

This is slow power grabbing and we are the frogs in the pot... anytime a major content provider is bought by a major content delivery system owner...no good will come of it. Lets be honest here there is no altruism going on here. Verizon and other cable providers will be impacted at some point down the road and more likely sooner rather than later.

Sadly i dont see congress or any of its oversight bodies halting this or placing any kid of restrictions on this deal.

Two reasons:
First, they have much of congress feeding out of their pockets.
Second, they have much of the country brainwashed into thinking giving them everything they want will somehow turn into lower prices and better service.
