Whose Shallow PR Ploy?

You can't blame Comcast.

They were simply doing the administration's bidding.

And they got off quite cheap!

Riiiiiight. It is not Comcast's fault that Comcast offered regulators a fairly limited quid pro quo in order to gain regulatory approval of an anti-competitive merger.

Nope, not at all.
Comcast played to the administration's fiddle, unlike AT&T.

The "regulators" did not fiddle demand; the regulated paid offered a sop.

Not sure what your AT&T comment means. If that's about 1984 and judge Green, that was called a "Consent Decree". Because AT&T offered their own quid pro quo: Consent to be broken apart in exchange for being allowed to compete against the likes of Sperry-Rand, Univac, and IBM.

You're dating yourself.

In more recent history, Justice did block AT&T's acquisition of T-Mobile.
